17. Yes Rose, your point to Lex is a good one. For some of us it's childhood....

Some parts of my childhood I wouldn't change for the world. Other parts, not so much.

My mother thought books were a waste of time and she thought education was too. She held the firm belief that armageddon would be upon us very soon and this wicked world would be no more. I now just accept that she was brainwashed and her neglect of such important things were due to that. I love her and feel sorry for her. Oh well....

I also loved doing book reports! Thank gawd for mandatory school for children! It saved me and gave me some skills I never would have got at home.

btw: I made reading a priority in my house and my grown children automatically did it too with my grandchildren. All's well that ends well.
