It's a sunny day here. We're putting up Giftmas lights. Last night I had the great pleasure....err, ahh, sad task of informing my mother-in-law that she wouldn't be able to buy a Kindle for Giftmas, not until March.

Hee hee... - Durphy's evil twin

They have refurbished Kindles for sale at Amazon. She could have a Kindle in her hands by Tuesday...

Good Afternoon! It's a bright, sunny day & a wonderful one at that!!!! This morning's mail was special! We were expecting Tim's Kindle. We heard the rumble of the mail truck. We both jumped up and looked out the livingroom window to see if that wonderful package was coming. Well, Mr. Mailman put in a gumbanded assortment of fliers and letters into our box. Then he started pulling away!!!! We were crestfallen!!! About five feet away, he stopped his truck!!!!! He reached in the back and we saw a box!!!!! He opened his door and started walking towards our house! I saw AMAZON on the side! I was jumping up and down and Tim walked out (rather quickly I think) somewhat nonchalantly to take the package! So now we are a Kindling family!!! It's up and running and Tim bought a chess book. That will be interesting to see how it renders the diagrams of the chess board.

What a Great Story I hope Tim enjoys his Kindle ;D

Good morning everyone,
We've had two days and nights of rain, rain and more rain. We are still at our daughters and had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Will be returning home tomorrow. Today is "Iron Bowl" day in Alabama, the BIG Alabama vs Auburn game, everything stops in the state for 3 hours. My team has won the last six but I think we will lose today to a better team. WAR EAGLE!!

I have Kindled some while here, finished Snow Flower and the Secret Fan, great read by the way and I started The Stand. Of interest is there is no whispernet here, probably because we are in the "boonies."

Very good way to finish out the day!  Great story.  :)

The Kindle version of his chess book is really good. It shows a chess board with all the pieces in different places and I guess you have to figure out the next best move or something. To get the answer, you have to click for the next page. The pictures of the chess board are really nice.

Can you do a link to it?  I'm working with the chess club at the school and the kids would get a kick out of it.

Thanks.  I sampled it, but it sounds a little advanced for my chess club kids.

I actually started up my wii fit today, but the rechargables I put in them were already dead. I told my brother, "At least I attempted to excerise"

That's great.  I've only gotten as far as thinking about getting a Wii fit.

I would be at the same point as you, but I got mine as a gift when I mentioned it was interested in it. Now I can play the new Rabid Rabbids game on it.

OK, here's my question:

Have we gone off topic if it's no longer morning?   ;D

We'll get back on topic in the morning....don't worry, Betsy. Just think about what it will be like when kindlers from around the world join us.

Good morning!

Well, it is 12:04am...so it's morning now.  I'm back in Jacksonville and trying to settle in.  Guess I should go to sleep at some point...

Cool, another person not too far from me.  :)

Happy Sunday Kindleteers!  Roll Call!  Vampy!

It's 0655 and it's already pouring down rain outside.  Looks like a perfect Kindleday to me.  I should finish off Moonlight today and then I'll have to pick something else out to read. 

I have so much to chose from.  It's enough to make my head hurt.  :)

I hope y'all have a safe and happy day.  May your Kindles be fully charged and your Whispernet have 4 full bars!

I like to write, you like to read. So why don't you grab THREE of my best selling novels for free?

Sunday 6:41   Good Morning Kindlers.  It is 40 degrees. Hope you have a great day.  My Amazon mail says my M-edge shipped so I will have that to look forward to next week.

The one thing I really do look forward to is my breakfast at the Huddle House on my way to work.  It just makes my work day that much easier to deal with.
