Mixed Emotions


I picked up the books from the printer today.

I’m happy that I made this book.

I’m sad that I was able to.

I’m happy that it’s done.

I’m sad that Bill’s not here to celebrate with me.

Definitely a day of mixed emotions.

But to Bill, and Jim, and Russell, and Michael, and Ken, and Randy, and Allen, and Ken, and Garrett, and Jerry, and Rob, and Ray, and Frank, and Andy, and Harold, and Al, and Ginette, and Norman, and Lloyd, and Ken – thank you for your love. You are in our hearts forever.

More Book Sale Treasures

The Saskatoon Symphony has started having an overstock sale in November. Bless their hearts! I can go treasure hunting twice a year now!

Here are my latest finds:

Canadian Who’s Who (2004)
For $2.00 I can afford to feed my vanity. 🙂
Hutchinson’s Pictorial Encyclopaedia
Published Weekly in the 1930’s for 25 cents each, I got the complete set of 80 magazines for $20 – which is what they would have cost when they first came out! I can hardly wait to dive into these.
Jesus Christ Superstar
The two-album set for $2.00. Couldn’t resist.
The Barra MacNeils Christmas Album II
I try to buy one new Christmas CD every year. This year’s was only $1.00!
Once again I’m happy with my treasures from the Symphony Book and Music Sale. You should check it out! Tomorrow (Sunday November 20th) is the last day. It’s open from noon until 5:00 p.m.
