I did some cleaning over the weekend, and ran across a couple boxes of high school books etc. These were mixed in, and I had totally forgotten ever owning them. In fact, in response to some questions I had about fasteners, Carroll Smith’s books had been popping up both in Google and in conversation, so I had put them on my Christmas list. Despite being almost as old as I am, they are still apparently quite relevant.
Happy with my discovery, I put the kids to bed, mixed myself a tall glass of yellow and blue and sat down for some throwback reading.
It was all for not though. Less than one paragraph in, I re-discovered why they had been banished to that old cardboard box for the last two decades.
The plus side is… that they are just a little bit thicker than the old issues of DoriTen that I had stuffed underneath my freezer in an effort to level it.
