I haven’t exactly been keeping up with the ABC Along. I kind of got stuck on J and couldn’t seem to get beyond that. I couldn’t think of anything for L either and the K was just too obvious. So, we will just jump ahead to M.
M is for a Mountain of Books:
These are my textbooks for fall semester. And yes, you are reading correctly! I get to train a dog for college credit!!! I am taking Psychology 311 – Principles of Learning. As part of the section on operant conditioning, we get to train a dog and write a paper on it – hence dog training books are included in my curriculum. How cool is that? I have to admit that both of our dogs are pretty well obedience trained, so I may need to borrow a dog. I have several friends who have volunteered their pooches!
You will also notice books on statistics. I have geared up my courage and decided I need to take this class. But you gotta love a book called “Statistics for the Terrified”. It is peppered with Gary Larson cartoons, but also with things like this:

I was able to try it on when I finished the armhole increases and decided I needed to add at least another inch for the armhole depth. I haven’t tried it on since, so I hope the inch was enough. Now I’m down to miles and miles of stockinette, so I hope I don’t get bogged down.
It’s a nice night for knitting – raining and my hubby is at work, so I’m off to settle down with Law and Order!
