Books,Bringing Books to Life-Books, Beverages and More
Welcome to “Books Beverages and More.” I love to make books come to life in some way in my own reality, so I decided to start this segment. In some way, I will bring something that happened in the book to my life. Let’s get started…
I enjoyed The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Vampire Slaying, but that does not mean I want to invite a vampire into my home. Yikes, that would be horrifying. That got me thinking about what is an excellent drink to have regarding this book? The answer is probably a very dark red wine would be perfect.

I tried to remember some of the food and drink in this book, but nothing came to mind. The main character did spend time looking at old photos to jog her memory of happenings in the past. I thought I would look at a couple of old photos I have.

My sweet mom. She did not have an easy life, which makes me sad to think about. Even though she was treated poorly, she treated us wonderfully. She loved us, and we knew it. Mom always found time to help others. She served on a board that helped the mentally handicapped, and she collected money for the American Heart Association. She was an angel here on earth, and I miss her.
This is my brother Bruce, and I. Bruce had Down’s Syndrome, and he was one of the loves of my life. I miss him too. Love you, Bruce.

I was looking at what were people chatting about in 1969? One thing was The Charles Manson Murders, the Vietnam war was in full swing, and Richard Nixon was in office. I remember most of the TV shows they mentioned in this article. One show that I really enjoyed at the time was Bonanza. Yes, Little Joe was the cutie, but I was a 12-year-old in love with Hoss because he was so kind. I would later fall in love with Michael Landon when he starred in Little House on the Prairie.
