Green Nooks and Vans

I suppose much more credit is due her. I should just learn that she obviously knows me better than I know myself. But the next time she suggests I give something new a try, like replacing my service truck with a van, or a massive clog-up-the-entire-room library of bound books with a seven inch reader…

I would not like a van here or there,

I would not like a Kindle anywhere.

I do not like green Nooks and vans,

I do not like them TC-I-am.

I now drive a van, and I wouldn’t take twenty steps without either my Nook or Kindle in hand. But you would get a kick out of seeing the labor my wife put into convincing me to try these things.

Come to think of it though, I’m pretty much set in my stuff no matter who comes a calling on me to change. Even God? Yes, <sigh> even Him. I’m pretty sure there’s a lesson here somewhere.

“Do what honey? Try putting my writing where someone else can see it? Have you lost your ever-loving mind?”

I do so like
green eggs and ham!
Thank you!
Thank you,
The Great-I-Am

With white suits and butterfly nets coming at me from all angles… now imprisoned for manipulating the words of the good Dr. Seuss.

And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God (Romans 12:2).

  1. Call me old fashioned, but I still prefer a hard copy book.

      Why thank you much for spending your time here reading good friend. And of course “profound” rhymes with impound, which is what I’m going to be if I don’t get off this kick. Blessings… 🙂

    When Kindle called, I rejected it! Alas, I have succumbed to it as well!
