It said it "couldn't complete my request", then put it in twice. Gee, it wasn't THAT good! So Bill, dump this one and one of the duplicates, will you please?

I prefer the ones with raisins. With raisins and walnuts, even better.

Anyone who desires a copy of Reform School Girl can't be all bad.

If at your age you can still eat cajun trail mix you have my respect and envy.

Todd Mason said...

Showing my ignorance, do you refer to a novel REFORM SCHOOL GIRL or the film with a young Sally Kellerman that might've been based on such a novel?

What I'm talking about is the almost unobtainable Diversey paperback edition.
