 in a year or two a new hardbound book will will cost us $150 if its available but i egress....iv'e probably read most all (more than 10 )of the travis mcgee series by john d. macdonald.    the protagonist was wriiten as an intelligent and introspective man, sometimes with a hard cynical streak like myself and provided plenty of inspiration for afternoons of gilligans island imagining myself  helping ginger come aboard my houseboat (The Busted Flush) drinking boodles gin...straight.  Each new novel would inspire a fresh style in my wardrobe as well through the clever use of the color wheel and flashy names like  Darker Than Amber, The Deep Blue Good-by and The Lonely Silver Rain.  I enjoy fifty shades of gray too! if the cleaning lady remembers to bring it with her retired bus driver je ne sais quoi . She says the discussions are a great way to get to know her clients  better . Anyhow, ive also read most all the Chiltern series about Chevy silverados but thats a haul for a blog comment. Deuces everybody and enjoy the summer!!!
