    Good find at my local Goodwill

    I came across copy of Speer #9 reloading manual and a copy of Lyman 45th edition. I got both for $6 and change. They'll be a great addition to my reference library.

    I've always felt sad when that sort of thing ends up at Goodwill, more than likely when someone's estate was finished up.
    And the heirs either didn't want it, or didn't even realize what they were putting in the 'donate' bin.

    But at the same time,
    I like seeing that sort of stuff get back out in circulation, and bought by someone who wants and appreciates them.
    Political Correctness and the cancel culture is only allowed to exist because of the coward culture.

    Yesterday at Restore, checking for pewter I found 8 glass bottomed mugs, a Jefferson cup and a goblet. They totaled just short of 7 lbs. Sometimes you find nothing, or an item overpriced-for alloying purposes, but occasionally there is a score to be had.

    He hath shewed thee, O man, what is good; and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?

    It's a tempting offer but I'll pass.

    I'll be checking out other Goodwills from time to time. Hopefully I can find something else I can use
