I have a laughter buzz on. It's from reading Melynda Fleury's latest book, More Nonsense, available here: http://www.amazon.com/More-Nonsense-Volume-Melynda-Fleury/dp/1470142171
This gem of a book is a mere $8.88. And it's eligible for amazon's super saver shipping, which means if you buy three books (one for yourself and two as gifts), then your shipping is free. It doesn't get any sweeter than that.
More Nonsense is the second volume, in a series of what will be three, of Melynda's posts from her blog, Crazy World. You can also click on the images of books on Melynda's blog to purchase them. If you don't have Volume I, you will most certainly want that.
The thing I love about Melynda is that her writing style is so relaxed. Here's a sample:
Once the guys, at a car dealership I worked for, put me in four tires and rolled me around the room 'til I almost threw up. Their reward was a bunch of cookies laced with chocolate ex-lax a month later.
My shoes getting put in a falcon's nest on the ceiling, resulted in my taking Saran wrap and individually wrapping their keys, desks, chairs and anything else I could find.
My car being Oreo'd -- basically they took a bunch of split Oreos and stuck them all over my windows --resulted in my putting pads all over their windows.
See what I mean?
When a mouse moved into their house and they couldn't get rid of it, her daughter named the mouse Fondue. Her young son answered the front door naked to get a bunch of little girls to stop ding-dong ditching. And when Melynda went to teach Vacation Bible School, she thought she had dropped a load in her pants. Then she discovered it was a dryer sheet.
But, true to Melynda, the book also includes posts that express her love for her husband, Phil; her love for all children; and her love of God.
I know I've asked you before to please buy books from my brilliant and amazing friends. And now I'm asking again. Melynda needs your gol' darn money. She and her husband have already lost their house because of medical bills. Her daughter has to walk to school. NINE MILES THIS GIRL WALKS. Now if that's not determination to get an education, I don't know what is. Melynda's sold darn near everything she can sell. And to put the icing on the cake, she has only a teeny-tiny bit of sight left because of the demon Diabetes.
Now I want you to get up and rock the boat. Go to http://www.amazon.com/More-Nonsense-Volume-Melynda-Fleury/dp/1470142171 to buy the book. Melynda's not asking you to do this. She doesn't ask for help. I'm asking you to do it. Besides, YOU GET THE BOOK.
I already have a jones on for Volume III.
Infinities of love,
