Look what came in the mail today.






I received a message from a lady, don't know her name, the other day. She wrote that she found a bunch of old crochet books while cleaning out one of her relative's home. She said they were old. Was I interested? Heck yeah..I say..but how do I know you? She says you don't, but I read the article in the paper about you and your crocheting (that article was over a year ago)!! She said I know you of all people will appreciate these and take care of them. So I give her my address so she can mail them to me (I am grateful she wasn't a he, or an axe murderer). I am always telling my grandkids to not give out that kind of info..What was I thinking!!! Today the envelope comes and it is thick..she mailed it priority!! I open it up..and lo and behold ...some of the oldest magazines I think I have ever seen intact!! Over a years worth from 1916 through 1917!! I don't know what I am going to do with them..Maybe frame them? I don't know..I do know it is a piece of history. I am becoming a Hoarder!!!!! Anyway to all you fellow hoarders..I thought you might want to take a look at my new treasures!! She didn't even put a return address so I could send her a thank you note..Enjoy!!

What a kind and generous woman! I'm sure you'll find a way to thank her.
Well done on the magazines, they look amazing. You should scan them, to have a backup, just in case.
Take care.
