tried to retrieve

friday's and today's posts.
failed.
 sunday to monday
i went to syracuse for a picnic
with a bunch of wonderful bookfolk
 i didn't take this bag
which  holds my swedish bobbin winder
 but i received an admonishion
 i've heard that one before
 a was shown several wonderful books
in the conservation lab at bird library
(and elsewhere)
 discussed the pronounciation of basil
isn't it wonderful?
 oh, those old,
amazing
manuals
thank you 
peter and hope,
david,
hannah,
and bookish picnicers all!
a great jaunt!
