Finally, a little dysfunction!! With all the stomps, sneers and slams you would expect on the third day of influenza-induced confinement, the candor of this warm, magical story is a rare and welcome treat.

Gee…I was only gone for a couple of weeks and and once again JOMB has undergone some changes… 🙂 I like the reminder of ways to contribute to the show and contact you. A good reminder for me to get my act together and send you reviews…

The Grandmother Doll sounds so interesting…I’ll definitely be adding it to my list. Good find too. I’ve been on the lookout for the dysfunctional family theme…time to start building a tex set again!
