:D I volunteer for the American Red Cross, and at a meeting today, I mentioned Terry Pratchett. The guy in charge of advertising started laughing and agreeing with me. Apparently he owns many TP books and just Loves em. Woot, I love to find fellow Pratchett fans and that was a very pleasant suprise.

I love doing the volunteer stuff, I do face painting a few times a year. It is a really good way to have fun and do some good at the same time.

Sharlene and I go to a library discussion group when I'm here in Tucson and when I was here at Christmas we managed to get the group to read and discuss Going Postal. It was satisfying to hear all the positive comments from people who had never read (or even heard of) Pratchett before. We made a few converts that day. :wink:

Or listen to it I suppose, though as I have the abridged version, I guess I had better reread it. :lol: :lol:
Best wishes,
