Today's random thought

I don't think I'll ever get used to seeing the seeing the fire truck go grocery shopping, Yet today wasn't the first time I've seen it.
The grocery store we use in place of a convenience store is just one block from the fire station. It's a pretty long block, but not too long to walk. Except that when firemen are on call, the truck goes where they do, in case they get a call while they're out, so they can't just walk. If one of them needs a blood test, they take the fire engine to the medical lab. If they need groceries, they take the fire engine to the grocery store. If you're the grocery store just a long block from the fire station, you leave a spot next to the container trucks for the fire engine to park, especially if they're all out front because a hill is in behind. The firemen just have to walk the length of the store to reach the front door, and it's not a long store. {wink, Smile}

A book is finished being bound. Finally! {BIG SMILE}

The book I've been binding is done. I've finished hand-binding the short stories I found in the Secret World Chronicle series. This includes stories by Mercedes Lackey, Steve Libbey, and Veronica Giguere. (Cody Martin and Dennis Lee have also contributed to the series, but I didn't find any short stories by them.) {Smile}

To the best of my knowledge, this is legal as a copy of ebooks I own. {Smile}

Please don't mind the eraser in some of the pictures. It was the most convenient paperweight to hand. {Smile, wink}

This is the front cover. Waterproof buckram, a type of bookcloth, comes in solid colors only; fortunately, I do like red. {Smile}

This is the title page. The "READING COPY: NOT FOR SALE" line is technically not required by copyright law. It just seemed like a good way to show respect for the author's work, and also for the limits of what you can do with ebooks. {Smile}

This is the back of the title page, and the first page of the table of contents. {Smile}

This is the second page of the Table of contents. {Smile}

I hope I found all the stories. I did try. {wink, Smile}
