Subject: RE: BS: Curmudgeon Fell -- On Way to Hospital
Maybe the purple pants will inspire him to get well sooner, just so he can go home and get his own clothes.

Take care of both of you Linn. I have a little book of essays that I've taken with me the last couple of times I had to spend time with folks in the hospital. The stories are short enough to get through and not put the listener to sleep, and they're smart and funny. It's Bailey White's Mama Makes Up Her Mind - I think you probably will remember her name from some of her commentary on All Things Considered during the 1990s. I suspect you'll all be home before I could send a copy, but if someone will check out a used book store in the area, you can probably find it. Or if you'd like a copy for later, I'll send one along (tons of them are for sale at Amazon, etc.) Just PM an address.
