Dusty Treasure

I've mentioned before how I have very fond memories of digging for treasure in the old dusty book and magazine stores of my youth. Old SatEvePosts with Norman Rockwell covers sold for 3 dollars. I had a hard time picking out 3 for the ten dollar bill I had in my pocket. Below was one of 'em. I idolized Rockwell in those days.

The original is in the current Rockwell show at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington D.C..

That sounds like an agonizing choice.

Marc, I'm not able to see that show, I'll bet it's terrific.

M.D., In a world full of true agony, I'm embarrassed to admit to that, but yes, I was young and innocent and faced with stacks and stacks of these things to choose from. I was such a geek (and still am, but in different ways).
