I found myself once again in the dating pool at the age of forty-five. This is where "a lot of fish in the sea" becomes "several bottom-feeders peppered with sharks possessing false teeth."

  4. Firstly, the book cover is interesting. Secondly, the title, I don't even know what to say! Lastly, that 56 is utterly hilarious! It totally fits the cover. It would be horrible to be a bottom-feeder at such an age though :/

  5. I would expect a memoir by Brad Garrett to have a lot of humor. Sounds good!

  6. Out of curiosity, have you ever thought about making a Friday56 hashtag on instagram? I love the idea of your meme, but I'm not so keen on microposts. Plus I think lots of hand lettered lines from books would be cute on my instagram feed!

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself.

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
