It's been almost two years since we were here: https://www.librarything.com/topic/305981

Apparently a bunch of accounts on LT have been purged, for whatever reason. We get to to do it all over again.

Wheee! That 68 has to be cooler than '68 could have imagined itself being.

Somebody else join, please, because I want to post 67.

We could place ads in other groups offering free personal reading threads in The Green Dragon.

And banter. Banter than any other group. The bantest, in fact.

Bant. Bant. Bant.

As long as we're not banting. I get really cranky if I'm obliged to do that..

Missed 67, but hoping that approximate cheese will approximately make up for it:

I sense a beatle-related number approaching.

>13 MrAndrew: I reached that number last month. I can no longer sing that song and be referring to the future.

Will you still need me, will you still feed me
Now?


It does not scan so well. It loses something.

>16 pgmcc: No, I didn't think of it. Found this one online.

18pgmcc
mar 16, 8:02pm

>17 clamairy: Something for a future number. The challenge will be to get the angle right so as not to have your footprints in the image.

19clamairy
mar 17, 9:48am

>18 pgmcc: Perhaps I'll use a long stick. I don't want to lean over so far that I end up with my face indented in the sand next to the number...

20pgmcc
mar 17, 4:47pm

>19 clamairy: We would not want you to injure yourself or end up flat on your face on the sand. Of course, an imprint of your face beside the number could add interest to the image.

>30 ScoLgo: I suspect your number is lost in the ocean of time. Mine, as a very round number, was preserved in the thread linked above. Although if this troubles you, you could resign and rejoin, taking note of your new number....

A little early, but I'd rather that than be late:



A certain amount of deliberate confusion here: This Algeria is a nature reserve near Clanwilliam in the Western Cape. It was formerly a forest reserve, and reminded the Cape Colony's first forest officer, the resoundingly named Count Médéric de Vasselot de Regné, of the place where he did his degree -- in North Africa (c. 1870).

I guess not many are interested in this game, but I think it's moderately thrilling.

That's it exactly! A zen 22. The sound of two sets of hands clapping, in the forest, with no-one to hear.

I love the timber and the aged appearance of the numbers. Black and white really enhances the feel of the image.

>78 clamairy: The 48 is nice too, but I think the diversity is better. The more styles the better.
