About meThe picture is of Horus, one of our two cats.

About my librarySince I taught physics, I collected a number of science-related books. The library developed from my collections and those of my wife ( a retire elementary school guidance counselor) and two sons. The sons have left home, but their books remain!
There is a fine local public library, as well as a university library; so I have borrowed many books from those sources, or have given some books away. If my library has few books by a "favorite" author, it is because I had given those books away or borrowed them (before LibraryThing).
