My car was filthy with leaves and grass and other bits of Mother Nature, so I went to DeGennaro's Car Wash in South Greensburg at lunch to make use of their giant vacuums. Nine minutes and $2.25 later, I was on my way with a (relatively) clean interior and without Judith Guest's "Ordinary People," which I left leaning against the vacuum unit.

Today was the annual Holiday Parade in Downtown Greensburg--a fabulous opportunity to release lots of books. While Sister No. 4 and her family watched the parade, I was able to release ten books with the help of Sister No. 6: "Under the Mistletoe," by Mary Balogh; "The Dog Who Saved Christmas and Other True Animal Tales," by Allan Zullo; "The House Without A Christmas Tree," by Gail Rock; "Christmas Around The World," by Emily Kelley; "Politically Correct Holiday Stories," by James Finn Garner; "Truth or Dare," by R. L. Stine; "The Princess Bride," by William Goldman; "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" by C. S. Lewis; "Arthur's Christmas," by Marc Brown; and "Deadly Promise," by Mignon F. Ballard. Even though it was a mite chilly, once my mission was complete, we stuck around and enjoyed the rest of the parade.

Today was the Annual Food Bank Benefit Breakfast at Slacker's Backyard Café in Level Green. Mom, Sister No. 6, and I enjoyed a delicious breakfast (mine was eggs, bacon, and French toast) in a constantly full restaurant. It was so good to see all these people giving so others who need help can be helped. On our way out, I left an audiobook version of Lois Lowry's "The Giver" on the windowsill outside.
