No! Are you ready for No? As Thomas Hood reminds us in his poem:
No sun – no moon!
No morn – no noon –
No dawn – no dusk – no proper time of day.
No warmth, no cheerfulness, no healthful ease,
No comfortable feel in any member –
No shade, no shine, no butterflies, no bees,
No fruits, no flowers, no leaves, no birds! –
Ready or not here it comes. When faced with all that no nonsense hibernation has a certain appeal, get the truck load of comfort food bought and stored in the cave and then you will need stories and lots of them to get through the winter.
No money left for stories? No problem! Loaning stories of high interest for No interest – libraries do that. Stories in any format; book, audio, DVD, VHS, and electronic resources may be borrowed and returned on time – No fees. If you have internet access and a library card you won’t even have to leave your cave to borrow a story from Montanalibrary2go. Wow!
November, bring it on.
