During cleaning, over this past weekend, among other treasures, I found a book I hadn't seen in many years: "Currier & Ives, Printmakers to the American People" by Harry T. Peters. It's a 1st edition, published in 1942. I even have the dustjacket. It is a really, really neat book.
Da Cubs lost three straight to St. Louis. If nothing else, this little losing streak will server to bring us Cubs' fans back to a measure of reality - many were willing to throw the "Plan" to the wind - the whole rebuild from the ground up - going to take several years "Plan" - in the face of a club that played really good baseball for about a month. Theo and Jed are going to stick to the plan - this happened at just the right time - before the fan base rose up in mutiny.
I found another book I haven't seen in a while - it's a "coffee table" book called "Irish Houses & Castles" by Desmond Guinness and William Ryan. It's a 1974 reprint of the 1971 book published by Viking Press.
I love the Yokohama tire commercial where the guy goes, "Duck ... Duck ... Goose!!" I think it's very witty.
Grannie is very disappointed. Tiger played poorly in the final round of The Open Championship and did NOT win. Ernie Els DID win - known as "The Big Easy", he's a man that's earned an enormous amount of respect in and out of Golf.
I'm rather glad that Ernie won. It's been a long time since he's won a Major - and several years where he's not had a lot of success on The Tour.
All things come to he who waits.
