it’s not odd to find them in every nook and cranny of a home that is hosting an estate sale
you might even find them in a the bathroom! yes really!
no, books are not what i found odd at this one estate sale i visited a few months ago while visiting my daughter in the Texas Hill Country,
which by the way has some awesome estate sales!
it was the book itself…
Dr. Chase was a well rounded doctor indeed
you can find information about anything in this book…kinda scary
but that’s not what I found odd…LOL! although this book is odd, do you see the index entry for Miscellaneous? Seriously?
what on earth could be considered misc. in this book?
well I’ll tell ya!
canning fruits, preserving meat, how to make paint
see! …odd i tell you
this book has so much information in it that I could write a blog post once a week on some of the topics
what a great idea!
once a week i will visit one topic in this fine piece of literature
yes…i’m totally serious! wouldn’t you like to know how to make raspberry vinegar?
what about “how to remove fleshworms” eeeeewwwh!
what the heck?
no wait…upon further reading it seems that those are what we refer to as black heads…well i’ll be!
don’t worry, i’ll keep it family oriented, meaning that you can share this with your children
doesn’t every one want to learn about “mouth glue”?
wouldn’t be interesting to know what things they used in 1902? that’s when this book was copyrighted.
i think this could be fun and i’m sure this will surely incite some lively conversations.
and the best part about finding this book…
it looks great and adds an element of vintage where ever it sits!
