Great Monday Give: Just Only John

I was out and about last week and found a slightly imperfect but still awesome copy of one of my all-time favorite vintage children's books, Just Only John by Jack Kent. Copies of this book are not necessarily inexpensive, so if you like Jack's work at all, I suggest commenting on this post before Sunday, January 30 at 11:59 PM to be entered to win. I'll be selecting a winner at random and announcing it the next day. (And for those newcomers who didn't read my newspaper article about Jack last year, they can do so here.)

The winner of the give last week that's gifting One Monster After Another? Why Mr. Edwards, of course. Congrats and e-mail your mailing info to webe(at)soon(dot)com for quick(ish) delivery. That's it for now kids. Have a great one!

I could use this book for someone very dear to me who is pretending to be someone she is not, leaving chaos behind her.

In other news, egg whites cooked in olive oil then slipped into bone broth taste like noodles.
