16.  autobiography- benvenuto cellini.  i'd never heard of this guy before.  i was immediately drawn to it after reading the back jacket, "he had a heroic opinion of himself."  it's considered the best autobiography ever written and he didn't even write it.  he dictated it to young assistant.  he hung out in florence during the renaissance.  michaelangelo, the king of france, whatever pope was in session were his guys.  he killed people on account of avenging himself.  he made enemies with his rivals (he was the preeminent goldsmith and sculptor of his day, according to himself), popes, bishops, dukes, duchesses, cardinals.....  he was ayn rand's wettest dream.  his boasts and threats were about as funny as they were awesome.  he was like don quixote had the good don not gone mad.  it was a wonderful read

It's the same guy who wrote "The Master and Margarita" which is his more famous work.

And be careful! He wasn't Russian - he was Soviet! Ha.

Thanks to both of you! I prefer the adjustable kind, so yes, CR, if you go please bring a measuring tape. It's imperative that they are less than 15" wide and expandable because I'm not looking to have a heavy duty installation here - just a simple something.

If not, I'll look into those pet screens.

We bought some adjustable white vinyl screens at Lowes for our old house in Newport that extended out to fit the old windows but when not in use slid down to a size that I swear was no wider than 12" or so. You just rested the sash on top of the frame to keep them in place. I may still have one or two of them in our lock-up and if I go and they're the right size you can have them.

Recommend to me a....

Way to create a window screen that fits in my narrow bathroom window. This window is ~15" wide at the opening, and 17" behind the lips of guiderails for the window. I want to put up a screen here so my cat doesn't get out, but the smallest adjustable window screens that I can find are still too wide for this small window.

Any suggestions?

HAHAHA!! You guys are awesome... I wish I'd grabbed Pacific Rim before leaving the house. Or my new copy of Godzilla. Ah well...Hercules movies filled the boring void.
