I'm in an Old Time Radio performing group. In Fibber' I play Gildersleeve. It's a hoot when we do the closet bit. We've got a step ladder with all sorts of junk on it. When it's time for the closet, over goes the ladder! Of course, the end of THAT is a metal plate spinning to a stop. The crowd goes nuts!
I'll write up a review of the book after I read it. I'll be loading it onto my PADD (for you Star Trek fans!) this afternoon.
