"There are days when spelling Tuesday simply doesnt count."

A.A. Milne- what a biscuit! Currently reading a 1975 copy of "The house at pooh corner". It's really beaten up and in the worst condition but I like to think i've given it a good home after retrieving it from a thrift store for a bargain deal of 5 bucks. It's only 176 pages but I literally am breathing in every page as I spend more time smelling the old pages than actually reading them. It's full of great knowledge and original pooh illustrations which will have to be put up here soon. But for now, I leave you with this, from page 89:

"By the time it came to the edge of the Forest the stream had grown up, so that it was almost a river, and, being grown-up, it did not run and jump and sparkle along as it used to do when it was younger, but moved more slowely. For it knew now where it was going, and it said to itself, "there is no hurry. We shall get there some day." But all the little streams higher up in the Forest went this way and that, quickly, eagerly, having so much to find out before it was too late."
