    I have it on hold.

    I don't believe there is such a thing as a bus phobia. But one might have a buss phobia which
    would be akin to a fear of intimacy.

    I suspect any woman who has to have 200 pairs of shoes to travel is kinda loony anyway.

    What kinda name is Doreen Orion? Sounds like a hairdresser who is star struck.

    Note to people who have a phobia about joining organizations. If you would like to take part in
    our book chats without actually being a member, you are encouraged to do so. We will tell the
    secretary (of which we have none) not to record your name and the treasurer (of which we have
    none too) not to collect membership dues (of which we have none).

    Also, you will not be invited to the reunion of which we plan to have none in ten years time.

    "A wonderful thing about a book, as opposed to a computer screen, is that you can take a book
    to bed with you." Daniel Boorstin

    Thanks for the info. It sounds like a great book and I want to join the club.

    I have not paid my dues, do not want to be on the membership list, nor do I expect to be invited to the ten, twenty, or even thirty year reunion.

    I will sit in the back at the meetings.

    I hope though, that if there are refreshments served at the discussion, some member would be kind enough to pass them my way.
