Friday Web Roundup: FREE museum booklets! Grammar Nazis! Cricket Pix! Eye Candy! And More!
It’s been a LONG time since I’ve done a Friday web roundup—so long, in fact, that I’m actually posting this on Thursday evening, just because I can. Let’s get started, shall we?
In a move certain to make all history buffs and writers squee with delight, the Met Museum has made their out-of-print exhibit catalogs available for FREE on their website—you can download a PDF to save to your computer or you can (supposedly) find them on Google Books. They’re chock-full of a wealth of information and full-color photos of items that were on exhibition.
The first one I downloaded was From Queen to Empress: Victorian Dress, 1837–1877, but I’m looking forward to browsing through all of the titles to see what’s available that strikes my fancy.

For those of you who haven’t been following along on Facebook, you probably don’t know that, a few months after the tough decision to have to put beloved Schnauzer Missy down, my dad decided it was time for another little one in the house. And it just so happened that her coming-home day coincided with the weekend that I had already planned to be in Arkansas to speak at the ACFW group there. So I got to spend her first three days at home with her. Her full name is Buffy the Cricket Slayer, but we’ll call her Cricket for short. Click the montage below to view the album on Facebook. (She’s a black miniature Schnauzer—with just a little bit of white on the toes of three feet .)
