This is a true story 'bout Uncle an' me.
One morning over breakfast:
Uncle to Aunty Belle, after he spied a new bag from the book emporium:
"Belle, ya' got enough books fer ya' own store."
Me: "Mm-hmmmn ."
Uncle: "We ain't got no more room fer books...ya' filled up a whole spare bedroom with a bunch of ole books and half t'other room. They's shelves in the garage wif hundreds of books ya' hardly notices. Thas' plenty."
Me: "Ain't no such thang as too many books. Them garage books is fer research. Never know when ya need 'em."
Uncle (after a pause), "Belle, doan buy another book. "
Me (After an equal pause) "It's a deal...doan buy another shotgun shell.
Them cases is fillin' up the garage."
Uncle o' course went right out an' got hisself all manner of new huntin' gear....and Aunty is still savorin' her frequent forays ter the book shops and book catalogs.
Iffin' ya ain't tried 'em, go online and git a catalogue from Bas Bleu --an Atlanta based "bookseller by post." I knows ya'll love the covers of the catalog.
