Sometimes, I enjoy myself by doing volunteer "work" helping celebrities at autograph shows. I love animals and at one time I did volunteer work for Tippi Hedren's Shambala Preserve.

No Matter How Bad I Feel….

 

….. I can hardly ever say no when my girlfriend calls and says she wants to go to a thrift shop!

I have to show these photo’s because of my “sis”, Cath .  I sent her a new version of this “original” version of Vanishing Cornwall, and so want her to see I have my own (older) copy now!

We both like Daphne du Maurier and about all her books take place in Cornwall.. which is also the place Cath was born!

If a miracle ever happens and I happen to get to England Cornwall will surely be top of my list to see… but I will also be sure not to watch Rebecca before going there!  :o)

The Second book, The Murrow Boys is about Edward R Murrow and other journalists.

Publishers Weekly described The Murrow Boys as "a lively, colloquial history of broadcast journalism that is so exciting one's impulse is to read it in a single sitting." It tells the swashbuckling tale of Edward R. Murrow and his legendary band of CBS radio journalists - Charles Collingwood, Howard K. Smith, William Shirer, Eric Sevareid, and others - as they "paint pictures in the air" from the World War II front. Brimming with personalities and anecdotal detail, it also serves up a sharp-eyed account of where the craft went wrong after the war, when vanity and commercialism increasingly intruded."This is history at its best," said Ted Anthony of AP News.

How long before I get to them?..  heaven only knows!

Thrilled you now have your own copy! This is the version that I remember seeing in the shops years ago. We'll have to try and read our copies at the same time. Maybe next year...

The Murrow Book sounds quite wonderful to me....That was the "GOLDEN AGE" Of News Broadcasting and Murrow was the true High Standard....All those guys that were part of his group---all of them, they were young turks at the time and were trained by him---CBS was The Gold Standard! You should put that book further up on your TBR Pile, my dear....

I hope you are feeling better, Pat...Sending you Healing Hugs:

Looks like two winning finds, Pat! And who cares how soon you get to them--isn't it wonderful just knowing you have them when the mood should strike? That's what I keep telling myself whenever we hit a library book sale anyway. :P

Ooh, I like the look of the Daphne du Maurier book. I just picked up her short story collection to read, Don't Look Back, so I'm excited to read that. I love the movie of it. And I read Rebecca many years ago, love the gothic feel of it.


I hope you feel better soon, Pat. Sending healing thoughts your way, dear friend.
