Moving on...

Well, now that we've spent the weekend admiring my new cover (thank you all for your excitement, both verbal, comment-wise, and email), I guess it's time to move on to other subjects.

I found this little snippet and thought it quite amusing. (It's certainly off-topic, but then, that's what a blog is, isn't it?)

Although written many years ago, Lady Chatterly's Lover has just been reissued by Grove Press, and this fictional account of the day-by-day life of an English game-keeper is still of considerable interest to outdoor-minded readers, as it contains many passages on pheasant-raising, the apprehending of poachers, ways to control vermin, and other chores and duties of the professional game-keeper.

Unfortunately, one is obliged to wade through many pages of extraneous material in order to discover and savor these sidelights on the management of a Midland shooting estate, and in this reviewer's opinion, the book cannot take the place of J. R. Miller's Practical Gamekeeper.

(excerpted book review from Field & Stream magazine)

I'm guessing this is what the guilty husband tells his wife when she finds him poring over Lady Chatterly's Lover--"I'm reading it for the game-keeping aspects! Honest!"

Just like those Penthouses, right?
