“Years from now, when all the junk they got is broken and long forgotten, you'll still have your stars.”
Now Tray's got me contemplating all the classics I've yet to read and lamenting another summer gone by without conquering Anna Karenina. And yes, I'm aware summer isn't over (as in 110 degrees aware), but it's safe to say Anna ain't happening this year. Sigh. This is the point where I repeat Tray's and my new mantra: "Don't matta cuz we're goin to London!" October can't get here fast enough. Nor can cooler weather. Which for me and this lovely desert I live in, is one and the same.
So today, whilst dreaming of chilly temps and London streets, I'll pay homage to the geniuses who invented air-conditioning and movie theaters and Coke Zero. And most of all, to Jeannette Walls for her beautiful book that now graces big screens everywhere. Throw in some popcorn and Milk Duds and it will be a happy day, indeed.
*Make it an even happier day and reread Tray's post on this stunning memoir.
