The Fifth Elephant by Terry Pratchett

The Fifth Elephant (Discworld, #24)The Fifth Elephant by Terry Pratchett

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I didn't read any spoilers on this one and thought it would deal more with the discworld cosmology. Instead it turned out to be a story of political intrigue in the distant lands of uberwald. It progressed the story of commander Vimes who is now the duke of anhk morpork. Other highlights are some details in Angua's family and the lives of the dwarves. Another wonderful installment in the disc world of Terry Pratchett.

Great White Paw

Originally uploaded by FlipSide3

Thought I'd point out that I did an update on the GreatWhitePaw. That would be our family blog. Changed up the header graphic a bit.

For those that don't know, is the home of the main blog for all the family stuff. Granted it doesn't get posted to all that often. Facebook is the place of choice for most posts. It's a nice place to find all the wishlists for our family members though.

If you're wondering, the name comes from our cat's white paw. Once we became a couple my wife and I needed a place that was uniquely us. Our cat Satine had a habit at the time of batting things from under closed doors. So one of us would be walking down the hall, and then exclaim "Look! It's the Great White Paw!" if we saw that flash of white fur from under the door.

Anyway, now you know.
