About meI am old. it really amazes me the things I remember that my grand-kids never heard of. Like WW2. OK, I was only 10 at the time, but it's a big deal. Now it's in history books. My mother knew old men who fought in the Civil war. That's really going back. One of my Aunts was an authority on every disaster that ever struck Cleveland Ohio. I wish I had paid more attention. Who knew I would be around so long. Now I am interested in reading about the Middle Ages. No, I don't remember anything about them.

About my libraryMy library is big. Book are everywhere. They have over-flowed the shelves & I have a stack of books very discretely hidden in a corner. I have not read many of them. It's like those people hoarding rice so they won't go hungry, but I hoard books so I won't run out of stuff to read. I also hoard flashlights & batteries.
