Happy 50th Anniversary Mom and Dad!

Pigeons in love

Thank you for showing the rest of us how it’s done.


There’s only one or two mentions of marriage in FML and I’ve only shared one or two snippets that include Clyota’s best friend Christina.  This bit is a mix of the two:

A couple of 14-carat gold wedding rings. Pictu...

Library Boy here I haven’t met,” she said, pointing her chin at Charlie.  “Your full name, marital status, and intentions toward my former best friend, please.”

“Christina, we don’t have time for—”

But Charlie had risen and snapped to attention, clicking his heels as if she was the Commander of the ALA. “Ma’am, Charles Robert Boyer-Ray, Ma’am.  I am not contracted for partnership, Ma’am, but if the trial goes well, I intend to marry your former best friend this Saturday.  Ma’am.”  He picked up Christina’s shock-limp hand, shook it gently, and sat back down.

I probabaly don’t have to mention that this was news to Clyota as well?

    • I tried to make him worth setting aside Clyota’s fears—I’m glad you think he is!

      I’ll pass that along to my parents, Lisa, thanks!

  1. Commander of the ALA? I knew librarians liked order, but wow! Of course, in this world, if there weren’t someone in charge, chaos would ensue (not that it hasn’t already!). I really must read this in its entirety some day soon.

  2. Oh, fun. I love the Commander of the ALA line, too. This reminds me a bit of Jasper Fforde’s Tuesday Next series. And, yes, let’s do get right to the point! When will the book be out??? I need to pre-order.

    • Ha! I have no idea—editing it is a side project and at the moment I just don’t have a lot of time to spare. Part of the reason I’m sharing so much here is to squeeze in a re-read . . .

      But I’m taking the compliment and running with it, Sharon! Thank you! 🙂
