Southern Girl

Hi! I am Lisa. I am married to a wonderful man and have a terrific son. They are my entire world and this journey is for them as much as it is for me.
I started my Spark People journey because now that I am in my 40's, I am no longer slim and fit.
I want to be healthy and fit. I want to feel good about myself. I want to be comfortable in my clothes. But, more importantly, I want to set a good example for my son.

I like the quote, too. It's really about persistence and creating sustainable habits. "Sustainable", I think is the operative word.

I see what you "gone and did". I kinda thought that was what you meant, then I considered maybe you went to reserve the book from your library.

Years ago, I participated in an online community that AOL had and I created a "cyberbook club" there. It was a bit of a challenge to create a date and time accommodating the groups' four time zones, but it worked! We opened a virtual room and did it with instant messenger. Nineteen people came and we read "Tuesdays With Morrie".

SP doesn't have that capability, but I think if we post in "real time" at the agreed hour, it should work pretty much the same way as the last time I did this.

I'm really looking forward to this. And then I have to reread "To Kill A Mockingbird", because for the life of me, I have no idea what I might have thought the book was about as an early teenager. But even reading "Watchman" it is lovely to revisit these beloved characters. I won't say more because I don't want to spoil it for you.

Welcome aboard!

OK, now that I'm home, I'm not limited to the measly character count I am allowed on my "smarter-than-me" phone.

I had read that Harper Lee did the research for "In Cold Blood". I also thought it interesting that for all her hard work, her "good friend" said nothing about it, nor gave her any credit. There are rumors that he wrote "Mockingbird" and "gifted" it to Lee. I find that rather hard to believe, knowing how poorly he treated his friends, and wrote about them in his works, with hardly a veil to hide identities. He, in my estimation, was a very small man.

Now, explain what you signed up for. I did not get that part. I am so looking forward to you sharing your insights about the book with the group. Just know you'll have to sign up for our group (you can always delete it later), in order to interact. You can follow the pathway from my page directly to the group. I think that's the easiest way.

I look forward to seeing what your opinion on all this is.

Thanks for joining us, Lisa,

Nu

Lisa, I thought about you and your southern roots. If you are comfortable to join us, I imagine you would have a lot to contribute to the discussion. Her friendship with Capote I knew. Not sure I knew of her connection to the general.
