WoW Weekly 100 Words 2/16/11

It's been a lovely and WoW weather week thus far, what with Love Day on Monday -- hope you all gave and received lots o' lovin' -- and we've had pure sweet sunshine daily for a change. I do hope you've been fortunate enough to have same.

Now, it's time for WoW Weekly 100 Words! Although this is a Wednesday blog hop hosted here at Ruthi Reads!, you are welcome to hop in at any time. Just grab the button and link for you blog post where you share exactly 100 words from your current read(s) and add your post URL to the linky list provided at the end of this post. Feel free to share anything else you'd like on your post, especially book-related items.

And be sure to visit and/or introduce yourself to others on the WoW list during week. Don't wait for them to come to you ... somebody has to be first ... networking works if we work it!

In this case, he felt a special kinship with Jennifer Ellis and, under the circumstances, felt personally obligated for her well being.

He felt bad that he hadn't contacted her father in North Carolina about her situation. Nash admired Henry Ellis and was not only amused but amazed when eight years earlier, the man single-handedly took on both the U.S. and the Spanish government to effect..."
