Wahoo Wednesday!

I saw on Chris from Stuff as Dreams are Made on that some bloggers are doing Wahoo! Wednesday because Bookfool has taken a break from the blogging world due to illness in her family. So, I thought I would scrap my plans for today and do my own tribute to one of my favourite bloggers.

First up, there is the excitment over the fact that I actually managed to write a review today! Yay! I reviewed Reluctant Genius: The Passionate Mind and Inventive Mind of Alexander Graham Bell. He is a wahoo in his own because he invented the telephone, which opened the doorway to many other forms of technology! To see the review, head on over to Historical Tapestry.

I have a happy cheer for the up-coming holiday season. I love this time of year. Fall is probably my favourite season, but November and December are some of my favourite months. I love decorating, Christmas music, snow, books, movies, and so much more. It's a great season, even if I have no idea what I am doing for Christmas this year! Marg and I are also doing the Advent Calendar again this year, so be sure to join in on that! The first post with all the details will be up tomorrow. I also really like Nymeth's Christmas Idea, too. I will post more on that in another post.

I also have do a Wahoo for Oprah today. I was channel surfing, and I really have to say that the show today was sweet! I am not so big on the basketball stars currently on, but the first couple on there were wonderful! They met during the Holocaust, she fed him apples through the barbed wire fence until he got sent to another camp. Then, fourteen years later he was set up on a blind date and the woman was her! They have been married for just about 50 years. I love that story, it is stories like that which give hope to all the bad things that are going on in the world today. And another sweet story! These people write love letters to each other everyday! That's amazing.

Much love to Bookfool! I hope she will be back and posting soon!


  1. All wonderful Wahoos :) I actually wanted to watch Oprah today...I heard she was announcing her new book club pick and I was curious as to what it was...did u catch it?

  2. I did a Wahoo for Bookfool today too. I love Christmas too. I'm very interested in the Advent Calendar thing. What is it that you do?

  3. Yeah, Pillars of the Earth is her new pick. :) I have that on mount TBR.

    I will explain the calendar in a post tomorrow.

  4. Beautiful story about the couple that were fated to be with one another. If that's not the case, I don't know what is.

  5. It's so nice that you all are doing this for Nancy. :-)
