Most Fascinating Discovery of Who-Knows-When

For some reason, self’s thoughts keep returning to the man she met in the Church in Sum-ag, just outside Bacolod, during her most recent trip home.  He was arranging flowers for the altar, and was nearly finished with a large bouquet.  He told self that he donated his time to the fulfillment of this task every Saturday, and he urged self to return the next day when, he said, the altar would be filled with his floral arrangements.

Self took down his number.  She is brimming with questions about flower farming and such.

Also of note:  today she looked at a slip of paper that she’d found tucked inside Saxons, Vikings and Celts, her best nonfiction reading of a few months ago.  It was a list of items checked out of the Peninsula Library System by a guy named John.  John Phillip.

John Phillip had been the last person before self to check out Saxons, Vikings, and Celts.  He was much more focused in his reading, however, as he also checked out the following books (There was a fourth, but the slip of paper was torn and she only got part of the barcode for the fourth book, and no title or anything):

Wouldn’t you agree that this is a most fascinating book list, dear blog readers?

Stay tuned.
