Who says that Topix and Disgracebook chatter does not matter, when it inspires those among us who are writers, but who are retired and can no longer be fired, with our many literate fans who have longer attention spans?

“Book shoppe time travel”
Saturday, July 19, 2014:
Earlier today, after stopping and shopping at Rite Aid for drugs, without hugs or thugs, I stopped at The New and Olde Pages Book Shoppe [where the spelling is off, not that I scoff] to turn in a new Stephen Hunter hardback book that I had just read; again not intending to time travel or buy any or many more books until I had finally caught up on my reading [when not wasting time online or breeding]. I now know how to (almost) double your money and it is not dishonest or funny! In the back room, I discovered a discounted 60-cent paperback science-fiction book (entitled "Galactic Cluster" by James Blish) that only cost 35 cents when it was new! It was published in 1959, 55 years ago, before I was born! Oh, sorry, I might have been nine at the time.
In 1959, the current book shoppe, uh...I mean, shop location was a corner farm field separated from that of the Denlinger/Harrison farm by Union Road, long before it was Union Boulevard with a Kroger store. I also note how small the printing was, back then, just because most baby-boomer girls and boys had better eyes than you older gals and guys. Oh, then on to Radio Shack I roamed, to buy a new battery and have it installed inside The Queen Mama's higher-tech cordless kitchen-wall phone.
