Roadshow

Post by ElfDude » Mon Jan 15, 2007 3:19 pm

I'm about three quarters of the way through Neil's most recent book, Roadshow. Anybody else reading it?
Aren't you the guy who hit me in the eye?

Nope. I don't own it. But I have a friend who shares with me about it. *wink*

I'm reading it, Elfie! I'm about 1/3 of the way through. Unfortunately whenever I sit down to read (which lately has only been in the seat of an airplane) I fall asleep. :oops: Sorry, Neil... I am enjoying the book though!

My mother read it in about 3 days and loved it, as she has all of Neil's books. As I posted before in another thread, this latest read of hers prompted her to ask to watch the R30 dvd. :cool:
I don't have faith in faith, I don't believe in belief, You can call me faithless, I still cling to hope, And I believe in love, And that's faith enough for me... Neil Peart

I have it but have not started it yet.
Have some library books due, and gotta finish them.
Last time I had 2 books a month late I had to pay $10.00

Nothing, the $1.00 pair of sticks deal was sold out 1 hour before I got there.

I didn't settle for something I didn't want.

Anyone see where Neil mentions my city in Roadshow?
He says he was in the Art museum.
They have also bowled in the alley I have bowled in since I was 4.
And my sister worked there that night and left early, May 9 1990
Presto tour, not knowing they were coming in.
D'oh!!!
