    • Surprise, Irene. I actually learned how to do this, at least hopefully. I am happy for all the accolades you’ve been receiving, and they are well-deserved. Did you ever dream that your good works would accumulate to such an impressive total of volunteering? I will be absent from the library book store for personal reasons for several Wednesdays, so I will not be able to attend your award ceremony. However, I will be there in spirit, and will look forward to your telling us all about it.
