One of the other problems I'm having with Mom end Dad is they seem to be pissed at a couple of books I ordered a few months back. I say "seem to be" because they have not said anything specifically to me, but have ignored my last three request to purchase the C++
My last letter to them, after they had said, "Have we missed anything?" had a list of five books, and the radio tape section. I had said that I would like some of the old time radio
tapes, but only if Dad would also enjoy them. I would send them home after I listened to them.
What I got in the mail was twenty-four tapes, about five different series, and no books. No mention in any letter about why no books.
The two books that I think caused their dismay were titled "The Mammoth Book of Women's Fantasies
" and "Sex in the South, Unbuckling the Bible Belt
When I wrote out the order, I left off the word 'Fantasy' on the first book and used the second subtitle for the second book. I guess Dad actually read the order confirmation that Hamilton
sent them and therein lies the problem.
The first book is about twenty or so different fantasies written by women. The second book was actually a sociological tome on the way the South has a double standard on sex. They were ordered for research purposes, but for now I guess they have decided to not to buy me any books!
I really was looking forward to the C++ book; the Linux
Magazine had a tutorial on building a BIOS
and I actually understood the code's purpose (it was C) and had hopes of being able to use that to try some sample programs!
Stay tuned, I will grab the bull by the horns and ask a direct question, and promise to not buy any more books that might be on their list of banned books.
10:15 PM and I have run out of gas. Let me proof and print. To be continued.
