Keep an eye out for old TV Guides...

So Vinny got it into his head, in his typical bulldog fashion, that I absolutely had to buy a stack of old TV Guide magazines at the auction on Saturday. The top one featured Adam West as Batman, and Vinny loves all things Superhero. The crowd was exhausted and super-saturated by the sheer volume and diversity of items at this sale, and I won them for a buck. In the stack is a '67 Star Trek cover, which I discovered on eBay to be selling for about 50 dollars. It may be a fluke, but I think I'll get my buck back!

I am seeing Rachel tomorrow so I will ask her. And sad to say she no longer works in a library - she is an admissions counselor. But she is great.
