The air is heavily perfumed by linden trees these days. Its a heady smell unless you suffer allergies in which case it is "heady" in another sense . . . Our selection of those old-fashioned, shaped $9.95 children's books has been all but wiped out in the past week. Am placing a new order for immediate delivery . . .

Got a helpful piece of advice back at the start: When you don't have anything to say just run a new picture of JJ. They will be happy with that . . . Believe we will be closing early this afternoon. It is just too hot here . . .
