Remember When


I carry a gun because I'm to young to die and to old to take a ass whipping.

Well, we were a World Book Encyclopedia family. The colors must have gone better with mom's living room decor. They were too expensive not to be displayed as an item of pride, for all to see.

At the time, I would have never admitted to my friends (it seemed too nerdy), but I spent many hours looking at all the great things those books had to offer. And unlike stuff on electronic devices, some of that information actually was retained. Just something about a book seems to get the info into my brain better???

It was always a big deal when the yearbook (yearly update) came out....yeah, closet nerd!

I still remember the door to door salesman coming to the house to peddle the encyclopedias!

Bigfoot saw me but nobody believes him!

They're all sisters, that must be why my wife knows everything, too!

If I remember right, a set of Encyclopedias was about $200 in the mid sixties....quite an outlay for books back then!

It was a window into so many worlds that otherwise would have remained a mystery. Most households, if they even had a TV, got two or three channels. No History channel, no Discovery channel, nothing educational at all. Open the encyclopedia and you could be in Africa, South America, anywhere. You could learn how airplanes or trains work. You could learn about history, biology, medicine, anything, no limit except your imagination and curiosity.
