The past week was entirely different from what I had planned. The plan was that I would be playing nursemaid for my daughter, who would be recovering from minor surgery. She didn't need to have me there - I needed to be there. However, the surgery was postponed. My week, all carefully planned, loomed empty before me.
Enter, beloved husband... offering a trip to Missouri.
It's a long ride to Missouri, but located between here and there, is a tiny little town - pop. 722 - that holds treasures just for the finding. And boy, did I ever!
Both parts of this wonderful library card file were stacked in a back room, just waiting for me. It was love at first sight.
I pulled open one of the drawers to make sure everything moved smoothly... it was packed full of vintage and not-so-vintage file cards! In fact, every drawer was full.
But it was the price tag that sealed the deal. A little bit of haggling and this piece of history came home with me.
Ahhh... the thrill of the hunt, the joy of the catch. It has been a fun week.
...Ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. For that ye ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live, and do this, or that. James 4:14,15
