Cheri started reading the first question, and it had so many character names in it that I couldn't even remember who was who. Amy must have remembered because she started answering the question. About halfway through, I asked something about who the characters were in the question. We got through that one, but we weren't really sure if we were correct about who was who. By the second question (extremely long, long questions with lots of character names in them) I was lost. We never could figure out who one of the characters in the question was, Cheri kept getting it mixed up with another book that she was reading, Amy couldn't remember who "Aimee" was in the book (neither could we). By this time, the other two - mom and Cindy - were looking at us like they were wondering if we had really read the book. We were laughing so hard that we couldn't talk, and we were each offering suggestions about who we though was who. None of us ever got it settled or ever answered the second question.
If you read the book, you know that there were a lot of characters, and that it switched chapters from who was telling the story to the time it was taking place - back and forth from past to future with some of the same characters in both past and present.
We were all laughing so hard that we never progressed past that point. I wish we had taped it for YouTube. It was VERY funny! Maybe you had to be there . . . but it was VERY funny!!!
Hope everyone has a great summer. We will meet in August on Thursday the 16th. Sounds like most of us will have a trip to share - seems like everyone has been traveling a lot. These are the trips that I know of: Amy went to the Hamptons and New York City, Cheri visited 17 states in 18 days, Sherry J. has been to Ca. and Ga. since we last saw her, Rachael is taking an RV trip to the Grand Canyon, Cindy is attending many weddings all over the country, Tanya went to Italy and Disneyland, Lisa had hip surgery, Diane is going home from rehab, Martha is going with her family on a Carribean cruise, Lisa went to Ca. (although I haven't seen or heard from her in a while) and I am leaving for our river cruise in the south of France in July.
The August book is posted on the website.
Some art projects are posted on Bien Dans Sa Peau Page. I am going to continue taking an art "lesson" from Pinot's probably about once a month. I enjoy it and I am learning more and gaining confidence in painting. They are getting ready to open a Memorial City store on Kingsride. I would love to have someone join me. The next one I am going to try is on Sunday, July 8 during the afternoon. I haven't signed up for it yet because it is the Sunday before we leave on our trip and I want to make sure I am ready for the trip first.
If that one doesn't work for you, there will be other opportunities.
Anyone attending our August meeting will receive a little surprise from France. Hope to see you then!!
