    A Most amusing pasttime

    I believe that I have every book tht Richard Lederer has written,with the exception of the last one, which I am ordering. I had the priviledge of crusing with the Lederers and his lecturers were as fabulous as his books. Every one of the books are a delightful way for one to be thoroughly amused and I have his love for words.
