  1. Merry Merry to you too. I'm glad somebody is coming to this place. I keep track and see what areas of the country visit, but mostly it feels like I'm standing in my closet with a flashlight going "Ohhhhhh, look at this." Then I remember the door is closed and nobody even knows I'm in there.

    Anyway, more stuff to come. Paper paper everywhere and not a drop to drink.

    I have this book, it is worth anything ?

  4. If you're talking monetary value I'd have to say not much. Keep an eye on eBay for any price. I would think much less than 20 dollars. If you're attached to it from childhood memories then that's where you'll find your value.

    Hi Linda,
    Would you be interested in selling this book ? My wife remebers it as a hand-me-down from her older sister and it was falling apart by the time she was old enough to read it. My mother in-law was a "minimalist" so it got thrown out long ago.


  6. Sorry Fred, but no I don't want to sell it. It was given to me by my paternal grandmother and has an inscription from her.
