Monday Junkin

What on earth is solar Biology? I will tell you if I ever read this. Seems a lot about Astrology
I just found this little didy to be a bit of a hoot! Is this big brother 1900's style?

I spied this at a garage sale that had nothing of interest. The maps caught my eye at first. I asked if they were for sale. The woman went to get her husband. As I moved closer to look at the maps I saw the wonderful map holder. Bob comes from the house and tells me yes the maps can be sold. I then ask if he would sell the map holder. He shared that It had come out of his father's country store in Newton Grove NC. Buddy Lindsay country store and gas station. His father owned it from 1935 until it closed in 1977. I think that I will use it to store some of my special glass rods, not wanting them to mix with the other not so special glass! The maps are not that old, darn! wouldn't it have been great to have some of the original maps?

Ok Caro's thrift, Melody wanted to know how much I paid.........I paid..............$10.00 for the maps and map holder...I know.....great, right?

This lamp has been waiting for the oh so right shade. Mission accomplished. Wouldn't you agree?
