Reading Back in Time, Sunglasses and Other Tidbits
While I was digging around on my bookshelves for my lost flash drives, I came across this book. It is signed on the inside from my Grandmother to my mother in 1941.
It was published in 1916. I actually took this book to the porch and read it it.
The stories are based on teaching kids good and evil. It's a shame these types of books are not in schools (or homes) anymore. I enjoyed taking the time to read them.
The tulips in my garden are slowing loosing their petals. In a few weeks I should be able to plant. In the meantime, my "garden mushrooms" are giving the flower beds a bit of color.
The biggest news of all - I found my flash drives! On a bookshelf. They had fallen behind a book that was pretty sure I had already checked. Oh what a relief that was.
I saw these in the flea market section of our thrift store. The tag reads $19.99, but I only paid a couple of dollars. I just had to get these.
