Don’t Know About You, But

Self is quite enjoying reading about this shady Martin Lomax. He’ll probably end up getting bumped off. In the meantime, there’s this pesky journalist who asks to use his toilet.

“The equipment shed is nearer.”

No one ever comes in the house unless it’s business. No one. First it’s toilets, and then you never know what. MI5 think they can just break in? We’ll see about that. Martin Lomax has many friends. Saudi princes, a one-eyed Kazakh with a one-eyed Rottweiler. Both the Kazakh and the Rottweiler would rip you apart without hesitation. No one comes into the house without his invitation.

The Man Who Died Twice, p. 53

Quote of the Day, 2nd Thursday in December 2021

Free of the cumbersome toil of struggling through the last days of Robert Falcon Scott’s inept Antarctica expedition, in which everybody wound up dead, self is now reading a mystery, the delightful second installment of the Thursday Murder Club series, by Richard Osman. May the main characters live to be in their nineties because she needs their wry, self-deprecating humor, dammit!

Martin Lomax interior monologue, p. 53:

  • He is certain that somebody will end up dead, and he just needs to make sure it’s not him.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Flower of the Day (FOTD) Challenge: Angel’s Trumpet

Self decided to take a short walk along Main Street just before dark. At the end of an alley was a wee little store (closed). Just by the entrance was a blooming angel’s trumpet.

She took a picture for Cee Neuner’s Flower of the Day Challenge.

She’s seen one of these in her hometown. It is also huge:
