      When is it released in your territory? I think you, of the beautiful aesthetic, will LOVE it.

        I pre-ordered via Amazon UK and, sadly, they send me little messages saying the shipping is delayed 🙁 :(. I should have gone to my local bookshop and asked them to order it for me. That would have brought the book to their attention and got me my book sooner. I may do that yet!

    Wait a minute. I thought Jeff Bezos was MY boyfriend.

      Okay, I’m paraphrasing, but listen, we’re all possibly Frank Sinatra’s daughter and Jeff Bezos? He’s got it goin’ on 😉 .

    Does the Mister know about the affair that you are having with Jeff Bezos? Hmmm…
    So is it as absolutely beautiful as I know it must be? Oooh I will have to wait a little longer for mine!

      Oh Golly! It started in about 1995, packages arriving in the mail… I referred to him as my “boyfriend” almost from the start, but then I also refer to my vintage stove with six burners, two ovens, two broilers, and a look like a 1950s automobile, as “baby”.

    Well it says it shipped on Monday and was supposed to be here Tuesday. I am trying to figure it out…. Waaaaaa ! “call the Wambulance!”
