ABC Wednesday - H & I

So we reached letter I on this fun meme hosted by Denise. I missed last week's H, so this will be a double post.

For H, there's Happy moments with dad. That's how it is when my little witch is hugging the big one while eating my niece's yummy brigadeiro (Chocolate ball candy - do you guys have this abroad???)...

And also Rodrigo's first Happy moment as a dad: the first time he held Lucas in his arms, still at the hospital. The photo was taken by me, while I was in bed - that's why it is so well framed...

For letter I, I have to mention Isaac Asimov, my favourite sci-fi author of all times! I do love fiction, my mind has fun with these astonishing authors and their amazing stories. I also love the classic Robert Heilein, Arthur Clarke, Frank Herbert, Fritz Leiber, Margareth Atwood... But Issac Asimov is the Master for me. He's like Tolkien to Fantasy, making stories so plausible, going back as far as possible in time and thus keeping you wondering if those people really did not exist. I have a dream of reading all his books, but probably it will stay in the realm of dreams, once this man was a writting machine, who had more than 500 stories written! The first Asimov book I read was The Early Asimov, with great shrot stories that made me fall in love with him. The Foundation and The Robots series are my favourites, and his Black Widowers series is another side of his that I enjoy: mystery.

Nydia, I love these posts!
Happiness is very obvious in your first photos. And I really can't argue with your taste in books! Have you read Leiber's Green Millennium? One of my favourites!

Happiness is the thing !
Clarke is one of mine and both Asimov and Heinlein - Herbert's 'Bill, the Galactic Hero', 'Make Room! Make Room! but Leiber@s 'Spectre is Stalking Texas', 'The Silver Eggheads',Meri's choice and 'The Wanderer'. He was so prolific but I never got into the Grey Mouser stories. I am an SF nut which is why I have written it too.

Thanks for the recipe! I have made a similar brew for a chocolate fondue, that's what we call it here. I just threw chocolate into condensed milk (which is pretty much what you did) and it's yummy! I'm so glad health stuff is done until next week, woohoo!
