fenlandgent: This was my thrift store haul. The book choice was good, especially as everything about where the store is + my walk there was so bland; endless autoshops, accountants, dentists. To find Delmore Schwartz, Preminger, Will Rogers, European artist emigres etc did seem so unlikely.

Or a big boat ride, which he often does,
Oh, I 'm orful glad when he's back becoz
Jes' as soon as he's kissed my ma an' me
He laffs, an' says: 'Come along an' see
The wonderful things in my old black grip,
The things I got on my little trip.'
