One young man (I'd say around 9 or so) seemed nonchalant when he walked in with grandpa, but with a huge grin when he walked out with a grocery bag full of books. There was the gal I'd take for 16 or so who collected jigsaw puzzles, the 11 year old who told someone, "Oh, I really am not fond of that author," in such a manner I cracked up. I worked the last shift of the sale and there were some old-fashioned games left that I thought were doomed for the garbage heap, but they were both swooped up by young people who were into non-computer-games. Maybe it's a retro-fad, old games and puzzles? Anyway, great fun.
Claire , I thought of you this morning when I was listening to WGN radio. They have a spot where you call in tell what is making you happy today. A man called in and said that him and his girlfriend were going to Galena for the weekend. And the announcer said that would make him happy too.

It is my birthday and my mother is now in a nursing home. My brother managed to get mum to sign the card.
