Oh dear! Looks like I failed to include the first paragraph! Bummer! That was the very paragraph I struggled with all week and finally had it where I wanted it...and it was such a good paragraph too!
Take my advise:Don't procrastinate until Thursday morning to write your Challenge article and check and double check before you hit the submit button. I had previewed my article once, made a correction and then did not preview again. Lesson learned--I hope!
Better start thinking about this weeks topic!
So many entries this week speak of "times gone by" of a simpler day in which we "had to work to look things up." I loved them all, and I LOVE this one!

I can relate to your story, I too had world books growing up. I loved to sit with them in hand and thumb through them with my dad, who loved to watch my eyes as newfound knowledge made its way into my brain.
Oh, those were the days. I thank God I grew up in them.

Great job, and I agree with your ending! LOL.

Thank you for sharing.

God bless~
Congratulations on ranking 11th overall! Happy Dance!
I can't imagine how much better it'd be with the first paragraph! I loved it. I used to have a bet with my husband that I could find a definition faster in the dictionary than he could googling it. I even wrote a story about it for the search engine challenge a couple of years ago. Your story made me smile and want to root you on.
