Old books!

A guy stopped by my shop last week with all these books that he insisted that I should take off his hands.  Being an old softy that I am, I offered him $20 for his gas money and he unloaded them.  One box was full of books he had bought from me when I closed out 3 years ago.  A lot of Harlequin books that I don't really want so after wiping them all down, I made alot of small boxes of books to sell for 25 cents each.  I have some folks who come in who can't afford to pay $3 to $4 for a book so I always have several boxes that I price cheap.  They are all good to read but maybe too worn to ask any more for them.  Business has been really slow this summer, but I still enjoy getting away for the 4 days I am open.  I use the computer, sew, clean and of course this is the local visiting place.  My brother and sister live in town and often drop by to chat.  In the case of my sister she brings her quilting stuff with her and keeps after me to quilt.  Well I have been doing some quilting, have a denim one all cut out and have started on it.  Will post some pictures soon.

Went to Branson Monday, took the sister-in-law with us for the first time.  Stayed at our time share and took her out on the Branson Belle Paddle Wheeler for their cruise on Table Rock Lake, dinner and entertainment.  A little 3 hour cruise.  I think she enjoyed it.  Our unit had a screened in patio with a nice view of the lake that spills out of Table Rock Dam, just a few feet from us.  We enjoyed watching the birds and the fishermen on the lake.

Now if we could just get some rain!


  1. Don't think I've ever mentioned this to you, but I lived in Hollister and worked at the "Ye Olde English Inn" back in the winter of 1972. Great memories of the area......

  2. Great area, that makes us almost neighbors, well sorta
