Always did like a good autobiography

Knitting? Not up to it. Reading? I’ve finished Michelle Obama’s “Becoming” and I’m halfway through a Jimmy Carter memoir that I was always going to get around to. Wow has the world changed over his 95 years. He’s not forging steel hoops to put around his dad’s wagon wheels anymore.

Edited to add, both noted their surprise at being handed a large bill at the end of the first month in: the President is responsible for the food bill of his family and guests at the White House. Any idle mention of a favorite or wished-for food ends in that food happening on their table no matter the cost if they don’t say anything different.

They learned fast.

Glad you’re doing well enough to read. We also like Bios and Autobios. Some of the best I’ve read in the last year or so include “Prague Winter” by Madeleine Albright and “The Measure of A Man” by Martin Greenfield. Jim listens to music stars bios, so I hear a lot of them too….

I loved “Becoming” listened to audio version read by her. I grew up North of Chicago, so some of what she talked about was familiar to me.

Will have to check out the Carter book. Glad you are feeling better.

I wonder how that is working out in the current WH?
