Meanwhile, I go to work.
Quick review of something completely different. The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson is a nonfiction take on Winston Churchill's first year as Prime Minister of England. WWII has kicked off in full swing, air raids are nightly, bombings, speeches, Dunkirk, and hope for the USA to enter the war - this book covers a lot in very readable fashion. Larson did his research and kept it to one year of detail - following Sir Winston, Clementine, and the family as they navigate the war. Oh the speeches, the leadership! This is an excellent read, and a good recommendation for their Remembrance Day, our Veteran's Day. Strong leadership and heartfelt caring about country and people.
Ray's dad served in the Navy, and Ray created two Marines. Thank you Chris and Kevin for your service, honorable and stalwart.
