Makes me wonder what happened to Charlie to do that!

I have to disagree, noting mileage sounds fairly boring! hehehe

Patty said...

Yeah, not the most mind-blowing excerpt. But those are the 5th and 6th sentences on page 56!

Ooh I've never heard of this before, but it sounds interesting.

I haven't heard of this book before. I can only hope that the rest of it is more exciting. BTW, I should check the odometer on my car one of these days.

My Friday 56 is here.
