I love the Library!

We hit the Fayetteville Library yesterday with the kids... got a bowl of soup and a piece of Hummingbird bread with a cup of coffee from the coffee shop, Robb hooked up to the wireless to upgrade some software and the kids played some computer games after picking out four books each. Charleigh had a meltdown and screamed herself into a stupor (I wouldn't let her type willy nilly on the kids' computers), so I didn't make it upstairs to get out some more design and decorating books, but I did get to stop at the media center to get a copy of the best of Johnny Cash on CD, the Best of Patsy Cline, 3 issues of Arkansas Living Magazine, a season of PBS's Colonial House on DVD and a documentary about the three kinds of Latin culture and their influence and experience in American culture. Scanned my keychain at the self-checkout, popped my goodies in my bag, headed out to the parking garage...we'll be back in two weeks!

When I worked at the Michigan School for the Blind, I had a student in a wheelchair that LOVED Patsy Cline. Keep in mind..they were all multiply impaired..and this kid was a bit daft. However..I had good rapport with him, and was quite distressed one day to see him WEEPING deeply and soulfully while sitting at the table. Approaching him, to comfort him..I said..Hey dude..what is wrong..I've never seen you Cry like this...
He said..(I kid you not)..."OOOH PATSY PATSY>>WHY WHY
WHY DID YOU HAVE TO GET ON THAT PLANE!!!!" as if it happened That day.
I couldn't help it..
I ran down the hallway to the washer dryer room and burst into laughter.

Robb informed me this morning that PC is his mom's favorite.

There is no connection between these two comments.

just a disclaimer.

i'd love my library too if there weren't so many stinking blue hairs fighting over the newest large print releases and backing into each other's cars in the parking lot...it's a bit of a zoo....you have to chose your library days wisely...

okay so far we've disparaged the blind and the elderly. (I actually had to read "blue hairs" a couple of times because that would be young liberal students here....)

nice. really.

i'd welcome your kind of blue hairs instead of mine by far! which is worse, young liberals or old cranky ones?
