“Grab some pine Meat!”, growls Mike Krukow after every strike-out.
“Fresh Meat!” yells the butcher.
And too this bookseller, for in this instance it means “Fresh Books” [and other stuff]. So herein we have 44 fresh items for your consideration, contemplation, deliberation, rumination, meditation & examination.
Why 44? Easy, it’s October and that was Stretch’s number. And the first person to place an order who also correctly identifies “Stretch”, gets an automatic 10% discount on same.
