Mailbox Monday

Thanks for joining me for Mailbox Monday! MM was created by Marcia at A girl and her books (fka The Printed Page), who graciously hosted it for a long, long time, before turning it into a touring meme (details here).

Metroreader hosting in February. Please stop by her fun blog to see what she is reading on her commute!

I got one book last week:

Bamboo Farmer Wisdom: 101 Inspirational Thoughts by Greg Bell, author of Water the Bamboo.

The book came as part of a "small world" story. A few weeks ago, a gentleman came to my door to explain that a friend of his had owned our house for about 30 years, that he was elderly now, and would love to come see his house again.  So we made arrangements for the two of them to come over for a visit, which they did yesterday afternoon. 

It turns out that the gentleman who made the arrangements for his friend is the father-in-law of my old friend, Greg Bell.  So he brought me a copy of Greg's new book, a little gift-book companion to Greg's excellent Water The Bamboo: Unleashing The Potential Of Teams And Individuals, which I reviewed here.

The Wisdom book did indeed come with a Water the Bamboo wristband.  My cats immediately disappeared it. 


  1. Nice "mailbox" and very nice story!

  2. Soku: Thanks! And thanks for visiting.

  3. I love the story about how you acquired that book!

  4. Kathy: The story is the beat part for me. Such a "small town" I live in!
