About meI have been an avid reader since the age of three, according to my mother and father! I have a variety of interests, but I concentrate on gardening/plants, animals, and biographies. Orchids and the island of Tristan da Cunha are special interests of mine. I live on a small farm now, and have a retirement home for old horses.

My profile photo is Shotei's 'Tama'. It's my favourite print of the several Japanese woodblock prints we own.

About my libraryI have moved into a much smaller home, so many of my books are being sent to new homes. My core library still has orchids and animals. I don't know how many books will remain, but I think it will get down to 1000 volumes or so.

I have uploaded a cover for Spirited Years: A History of the Antebellum Naval Academy by Charles Todorich

I did get the book, already 1/4 of the way in. I would have messages earlier, but I've been sick most of the week. Did you get the Nancy Drew book? I' m happy to hear your horse is gaining weight!
I would love to mooch Another Mother Tongue! Thank you!
Hi - I had to delete it, then re-enter, but it is done.
Thank you! I have corrected the entry for Stanley W. Fisher/
Oh! Thank you for letting me know, I didn't realize that had been reserved for me! I'm definitely looking forward to it, it's one I've been looking for for years. I'll probably hold on to it, but if it does go back on Bookmooch, I'll reserve it for you. :)
Well it was worth trying...Thrift stores can be a good source. Happy Mooching.

My my, another early bird!

Thank you. I'll be getting onto Bookmooch in a while.
Hi MsMixte:

I left a message on the Pimp your Inventory thread, but thought I'd put a note here that I'd love to have The Cat of Bubastes, even if it's battered, musty, and falling apart.

Thanks. I'm also karenmarie on BM.


I hope Jim enjoys the book. It's in the mail, along with Estrada Real. I hope they make you glad you came home from Canada. I bet you're going to want to go to Brazil next.

Dear Margaret:

Now you can order "Thanksgiving" at a Librarything site I set up: . I'm thinking maybe you'd like to order the hardcover edition, which is nice and fancy with a red ribbon bookmark, for a special father in your life (which would include all the guys you know who happen to be fathers). I'll be glad to send him a signed copy with whatever special dedication you'd like me to write in it.

Yours -

Glenn Cheney
Dear Margaret:

I'm very happy to hear of your interest in my books. You can order them "Thanksgiving" at and you can order "Estrada Real" at . Estrada Real is only in paperback. I will be glad to sign them both. If you'd like me to write something else in them, just let me know what.

Because of the home-made nature of the websites, you'll need to place separate orders. You can't order both and dump them into a shopping cart. I hope that's not a problem.

Thanks for your interest. I hope you find them worth reviewing at LibrayThing,

Yours -

Hi Margret- It is reserved! Thanks and take care!
Absolutely, I would love that! Thank you!
Wow! Well, we've got Short Eareds and Long Eareds (and Saw-whets) here in New England but they tough. I work the coastal Hawkwatch in New Haven and we'll get a diurnal short-eared once in a while.


"Somebody said that it couldn't be done
But he with a chuckle replied
That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one
Who wouldn't say so till he tried.
So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin
On his face. If he worried he hid it.
He started to sing as he tackled the thing
That couldn't be done, and he did it."
— Edgar A. Guest
