Huck came down the narrow hallway pushing a heavy chair with considerable difficulty and maneuvered it around a corner toward one of the living-room bookcases.

The bookcase in question contains a number of breakable trinkets, not to mention a conspicuous pair of binoculars. Feeling this warranted a discreet inquiry, I asked him: “What are you trying to get?”

“Up!” he replied.

    Hee hee hee. I can totally see Ben saying the same thing. “Up!” is one of his favorite words right now and rearranging furniture one of his favorite activities.

    PS. Knowing your love for MHLovelace (loved your foreword), your daughter’s joy in LMMontgomery, and your obvious respect and enjoyment of LIWilder, I am wondering what other authors of similar style you might recommend to someone like me who likes the same ones. (After I complete the Little House series on audio this time, I do want to read yours.)

    Um … I commented … but I have a sneaking suspicion my comment for you ended up on another blog. That’s the problem when you have several windows open at once!

    Or else it’s just taking its sweet time coming through.

    I just said lol, anyway. πŸ˜‰
