|Mary Hamilton gets frazzled|
If you missed the annual White Elephant Book Exchange Christmas party at my house this year, you missed a GREAT one!
The food was yummy, the people chummy and the books . . .scummy!
To the left, Mary Hamilton's face reflects the title of the mystery marvel she unwrapped: "The Frazzeled Female"
"Bedtime Stories for Children You Hate." A crowd favorite, she shared some of the chapter titles and stories too.

I wound up with this book--full of funny pictures of what to do with a dead body. Of course, one would have to have a macabre or dare I say, warped sense of humor to appreciate this book, but I love it. My favorite picture? Ice skating partner.
Below is the first book I unwrapped. YES, we stole books, though it was unclear at first if anyone would actually want to. The first book I bought was titled, "The Hair Book." The entire book was covered in black fur with a hot pink comb embedded in the top center. Hysterical. Of course Janetta Messmer brought it. Yeah, girl!
Dannelle Woody was delighted to receive "Bless Your Heart, Tramp!" Filled with southern homespun wisdom about the trauma of push-up bras and Amish starter bread, this book says what others only think.
Charlotte Holt's first book (before it was snatched away by Janice Thompson) "Miss Becky's Charm School". Saucy Southern wisdom and etiquette never read better. We delighted in the excerpts Janice read to us.
Nancy Kimball, our newly elected president and Bethany McManus, our newly elected vice-president presented the outgoing board members (Martha Rogers, president, Janice Thompson, vice-president, Annette O'Hare, treasurer and Linda Kozar, secretary) with beautiful plagues commemorating our service to the Writers On The Storm chapter! How cool is that! Thanks so much, Nancy and Bethany!
|Lisa Gefrides admires the book I brought to the table, "Polish Your Furniture With Pantyhose." Did you know that Listerine is good for your lawn? Says so in the book.|
|Writers On The Storm writers rock!|
Annette O'Hare and our newest member Susan Cottrell! Susan stole the much-coveted "Bedtime Stories For Children You Hate."
|Connie Power is clearly unfazed by her book, "What's Your Poo Telling You?"|
