Book Corner - Finished Reading

The Hosatge (A Presidential Agent Novel) by W.E.B Griffin
465 pages hardback

One of the better books I've read, really enjoyed this as it is about
the American embassies in both Buenos Aires and Montevideo and the
author apparently knows his way around both cities.

What a night!

Wish all of my readers could have been here! The fireworks were
spectacular as usual. The huge bottle rockets that my colleague had
purchased were something else! They really hurt my ears when they
launched, that loud! They went up several hundred yards in the sky and
exploded just as in anything you would see at a fireworks show. Thank
goodness no duds! I could have only imagined what that would have been
like. Some of the other fireworks were partial duds, as they weer
supposed to shoot out of a multiple luncher, key word shoot, instead
some just kind of plopped out and exploded, but nothing to loud.

The band was great and played lots of classic rock tunes. My ears were
ringing when I got home.
