Fantods


I catched a glimpse of fire, away through the trees. I went for it, cautious and slow. By and by I was close enough to have a look, and there laid a man on the ground. It most give me the fantods.

Well, I'm glad this isn't one of the words they've decided must be expunged in order to bring this book out of banishment. Yes, I went there.

It’s such a beautiful book. I haven’t read it since I was about twelve, and yet I recognize certain lines and passages like old friends.

My wife just finished rereading Huck while I keep marveling my way through Twain's Autobiography. Genius keeps one up at night!

So true — and I wish that were my excuse. Meanwhile, you’ll be pleased to know that two of my sons received the Autobiography for Christmas.
