I went to see a friend of mine this evening, he's recently had some minor surgery and is feeling a little rough. I talked Sweetie™ into making him (and me!) a Buttermilk pie, so I took him that and a couple of books. Stanley Horn's history of the Army of Tennessee and a book on Colditz (WWII German POW camp). He handed Seven Pillars of Wisdom (T.E. Lawerence's book on the war in the desert) back to me. It's a hard book to read, he's worked on it off and on for nearly two years. It took me almost four months... and I usually go through a couple of books a week.
