Happy [cheery, merry, joyful, jocular, gleeful] birthday, Peter

A little bibliophile humor today in honor of the birthday of Peter Mark Roget (1779-1869), author of Roget’s Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases Classified and Arranged so as to Facilitate the Expression of Ideas and Assist in Literary Composition.

    I love books! One the best things about retirement is having time to read for hours.

    Books are friends who rarely let you down. As a child, there were too many health issues that kept me penned in the house. My parents were avid readers and shared that will all of us. While I’m no great speller, I love to write, to edit and research. Sometimes I get a little energy and try to publish, and most is well received. I’ve had people offer to give us a TV. Why? I have books. TV pales in comparison. this post rocks!
