Thank you James for your excellent box of cheer. I've already almost finished Eats Shoots and Leaves. I realize that I'm guilty of over use of dashes, but also that she's addressing British punctuation rules and that American punctuation operates slightly differently.
Thank you Martha for the cool non-slip bath decals, and for Prodigal Summer.
Thank you Sheila for the shopping spree at the Berkeley Bowl.
Thank you to Joan and Bob for another shopping spree at Trader Joes.
