Yes, today is my birthday.
Yes, send good wishes.
Yes, give a gift to someone who needs it.
Chucks took me to an estate sale yesterday for a present.
The couple in their nineties moved into a new home and left treasure after treasure behind.
A solid copper box with lid.
Rand-McNally Family Atlas.
Really rough shape.
This campaign poster was glued on the inside cover of the atlas.
You can read about the Wofford professor HERE.
It is interesting to us because Dr. Clinkscales retired to a house on the Wofford campus renamed the Kilgo-Clinkscales House.
Chucks and his father were named after Rev. Kilgo.
And Chucks' father attended Wofford.
I think the atlas may be a keeper because of the campaign poster glued to the inside of the cover.
It's older than I am!
Also older are the stacks of books I bought.
1880's to 1950's.
Mostly children's books.
Look at the tiny Webster's Dictionary on top.
Definitely a keeper.
A small group of presentation New Testaments.
Calling cards from ministers.
I do remember when the preacher came to call.
In one of the workshops - two work aprons.
"Be really Refreshed" is the 1959 slogan.
One Aiken Lumber. (Notice the telephone numbers.)
A wooden hanger.
A Band-Aid tin.
There were walls of family photos - most professionally framed.
Each photo has the name and the date on a label on the back.
I could not leave the children behind.
The adults I left to fend for themselves.
However I might slip back over Saturday afternoon to see if any others need rescuing.
A bike basket filled with Gerber baby food jars with the blue and silver tops and Duke's Mayonnaise.
In the South it is the ONLY mayo fit to be eaten.
Okay, so I am another year older and probably a bit meaner.
But I am still out junkin'.
That's all that matters.
Plus most of the stuff I buy is older than I am.
