Cornshake has a beautiful post up over yonder.
I'm taking this little scoundrel to see Nancy Drew today. Keep me in your thoughts as I descend into the tween maelstrom. I'm sure it'll be fairly cute.
Who read the Nancy Drew or Hardy Boys books? I was an absolute fiend for the Hardy Boys books. My copies were these old blue hardbacks with wonderful little paintings on the cover. They were always wearing sweaters and calling each other chums, especially Chet, their husky chum who often tagged along. Invariably, they'd be in a bazaar in Burma or somewhere and Chet would leave to find chocolate milk or something equally ridiculous. And he'd find it. Walking back, strange men running would knock him down, spilling his milk and glasses and the mystery was on.
Man, I loved all that. I had several and would check out more from the church library.
