My Thrift Store bargains for today

I spent $12.25 at my thrift. The joke book is from the 50's, published by Random House. Totally politically incorrect. The jokes are not funny but I think the cover is with the stodgy-looking old man on it. And no, I'm not a Nats fan, but it is a brand new hat (with the $18 price tag still inside). We have two nights at a hotel to spend at The National Harbor sometime before the end of September so I can wear it then and look like a local.

So...I'm at Smile today and guess what? I was recognized by a blogger reader from a nearby town - AND I wasn't even wearing my crown! But I was wearing this fine piece of couture which the reader had remembered seeing. She was nice and didn't hound me for pics and autographs the way most people do.

Before I forget, here is the Washington Post article I swear, the next time the Post interviews me, I'm gonna do some negotiating beforehand. First, give Lusby a shout-out at least. Secondly I want a free lifetime subscription AND I want a ton of extra coupons in my Sunday paper. I don't think that is asking too much. Here is the article that appeared in November November article

Bennett Cerf was on the show 'What's My Line?' in the 1950s, 1960s, those are a hoot. He was the co-founder of Random house too.
