Good morning! I hope you are having a great start to your Valentines day morning. I have completed a little work, finished my workout and now I am writing this (while having my second cup of coffee) while warming up my car and then heading to town to grab a few things for a later this afternoon project (yes, in Minnesota we have to warm up our car this time of year). I recommend keeping an eye on the Books Burgers and Brews Facebook page – some fun things are happening there as Laurel and I are planning to discuss The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek VIA ZOOM tomorrow evening at 6 pm Central time. And yes, everyone is welcome to join in that discussion.
I want to explain the picture I posted here. If you are Facebook friends with me, you may already have read about this. At the Friends of the Library Book Sale, one of our older volunteers would come with her two adult daughters to volunteer at the sales. They would stay with their mom during that week and drive her to and from the sale each day. They also would stay the entire day volunteering so I was able to get to know them both pretty well. June in particular.
June and I for many years would be straightening up the books at the sale and find the funniest titles while doing so. We would capture these titles and hide them until the appropriate time when the other was not aware, and hide these books among their purchases. This was always in the hope (and usually worked) that the new owner of said title would not notice the book mixed in with their other books until days after the sale when they are unpacking their new treasures back at home.
This is how through the years I came home with titles such as:
My First Rectal Exam
Stop Being a B****
I wish I could remember some of the titles I sent home with her. If busted trying to sneak the book into the others mix of books, we would laugh so hard we cried. It was a fun tradition.
Now that we have not had a real book sale since September of 2019, I am left to take drastic measures. While browsing a book catalog on line last week I came across this title and instantly new it was for June. It is about to be mailed to her, letting her know how much I miss and her sister at the sales as well as the sales themselves.
Yes, I am that good of a friend. LOL
Happy Sunday all, do something spectacular!

Cute picture! I like how you have fun with the titles. I remember that my second son bought Everybody Poops for one of his kids, and they got a big chuckle out of it.
Enjoy your day!
LOL. I wish I could remember some of the titles – we have some pretty good ones 😉
I LOVE your tradition of hiding funny books in each other’s purchases and I am sure she’ll find this one fits the bill perfectly!
I do miss that! It really passed the time when we were not busy helping straighten the books or customers find the books they were looking for.
LOL. Yeah 🙂
Thanks for the laugh, Sheila! 😀
You bet! I cant wait until she gets it in the mail – she will think it is hilarious 🙂
