Akita and Overalls

This photo slipped out of a stack of used books I purchased at a library sale in central Arkansas. I don’t know which book it came out of, but it was a dog or cat book. The back of the photo says Nov. 1976. I think it is adorable. If I were the owner of … Continued

Push Comes to Shove

Discovered within the pages of a book at a bookstore in 1990. A handwritten note on the back reads: Bob – me – Lonesome Sierra Vista April 1952.

Tat Options

I found this in a US Government text book. I wonder which one she decided to get?

Dear Etta

I found this stuffed in a Rudyard Kipling book copyrighted in 1899.
