And Then She Took Me Junkin'

I drove up to Oklahoma City last week.
What a great city.
So very different from Dallas.
The last time I spent any amount of time in OKC was just over 21 years ago
and quite frankly the only thing I remember about that visit
is trying to find a place to nurse the three week old man-cub.
So this visit was different.
I got to visit with all of these ladies.
And then Robin Thomas took me junkin';
and it was good.
Here are a few things I brought home with me...
{not the dog hair or slobber on the floor... that was already here}
That world atlas is going to make an awesome mega-travel journal.
The scrapbook is really pretty, though it's full of clippings about the Dionne quintuplets-
and I mean it's full... and that's kinda creepy.
The little "top o' the morning" book, well there's that Wolfhound I now have;
so of course that was a given.
I heard that cow tell me to bring him home with me.
So I did.
Eight to ten pages of dog show ribbons; front and back.
I like dogs.
And the piece de resistance...
This leather book is big and heavy and has steel engraved prints of Shakespeare's plays.
Plus Shakespeare's plays.
I had to actually think about this one.
I knew I would want to cut it up, but knew that I wouldn't be able to bring myself to.
It's just too awesome.
However, that dilemma was taken care of for me when I went to open it and the cover fell off.
Done deal.  No more qualms about cutting that baby up.
Thank you, Robin Thomas and Oklahoma City.
I had a lovely time.
Also, I owe a lot of emails.
I promise I'm getting to that!

OK. You are making me very seriously jealous.

Those are some wonderful books. Glad the Shakespeare volume conspired to make you feel not guilty about cutting it up!

I found a scrapbook just like that one! Only not with the babies in it, but Deanna Durbin. I haven't decided exactly what to do with it yet, whether I leave bound the way it is (adding paper into it of course), or if I should make signatures to put in. Hmm...
