An All's Right with My World Weekly Link Round-Up

If you think that by my saying "All's right with the world" it means I'm back in the pool, you would be correct. Denis worked like a mad man and got the pool cleaned in record time. Now you'd never know that it had been filled with mud and all sorts of debris. Denis also slaved away at raking up and bagging a large debris pile left over from the flood. Poor man! He and his clothing were so drenched with sweat (this is NOT the time of year for heavy yardwork in Phoenix!) that he looked as though he'd fallen in the pool. (He did get in afterwards to cool off.)

Am I grateful? Naaaaaaaaaaaaaah....

Since there's nothing to see here (ahem), I invite you all to take a look at the links I've rounded up for you this week!

►Books, Movies & Other Interesting Tidbits◄

►Channeling My Inner Indiana Jones◄

►Channeling My Inner Elly Mae Clampett◄

►The Happy Wanderer◄
  • Six real-world Harry Potter locations you can visit. 
  • How to visit nearly every national park in one epic road trip.
  • Alnwick Castle in Northumberland, England. I'm a bit partial to the place. Not only was it used as a location for Harry Potter, not only have I been there, one of my ancestors was the steward there a few centuries back.
  • Planning for the future of a park where the trees have one name. 
  • Let's visit The Wild Detectives bookstore in Dallas.
  • Now that I've finished up in Dallas, I'm heading for Tubby & Coo's book shop in New Orleans.

►Fascinating Folk◄
  • Find out why teenager Lavinia Ream spent thirty minutes with President Abraham Lincoln every day for five months.
  • Since I was the age of ten, I've believed that Jim Thorpe-- one of the world's greatest athletes-- was robbed of the recognition due him. 

►I ♥ Lists◄

That's all for this week! Don't forget to stop by next Friday when I'll be sharing a freshly selected batch of links for your surfing pleasure.

Have a great weekend, and read something fabulous!


  1. Oh, I'm so glad you got your pool back, Cathy! Everything's just all that much better, isn't it, when things are back the way they're supposed to be. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a Mayan tomb to explore!

  2. Glad you are back in the pool and Denis was so helpful.

    I love those birds. They look like doves, but what are they? It's wonderful that you see the birds in your yard and pool area.

    Thanks for the links; I've read a few, have to get back to them.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
