A good book has no ending. ~R.D. Cumming

With all the rain today, she who must be obeyed said “Lets go to Toronto you need your medicine, yes right okay I have two minutes to get in the car.

Grand opening

Off we go down the wet road all the way to Toronto, first stop lets have a quick look at the Salvation Army shop, what a surprise for us when we went the new book section was finished but had a ribbon across the entrance. Can we go in? No it will be opening in about half an hour, great we can wait for that. Anne is having fun looking at the bargains around the shop.
Me I just went out the front and started to play with my trusty little digital camera while I’m waiting when I noticed a crowd at the back of the shop.
Well I better go and have a look, of course I’m off to have a look, what do you know? Here is the unveiling of the new used books section, out with the camera and snap a few shots of the local Minister cutting the ribbon.
Then we are all allowed to go in and have a look, all the workers and me. I’m like a kid in a candy shop, looking at the good used books.  I chose a few biographies a nice local history book.
If you know Anne she’s talking to everyone, meeting friends from around the western side of Lake Macquarie I’m sure she knows everyone from Warners Bay to Morisset. Soon Anne is in the book room hunting for those extra good used books that everyone is looking for as usual Anne selected some great fictionnon-fiction books, while I’m looking for my glasses now where did I put them?
Then in walks Faye a friend from our old  bookshop. After we picked our books, Anne had her bargains for everyones birthday for the next twelve months, we are off  to see the grandkids which turned out to be a quick trip,  but first a bowl of pumkin soup cup of tea, then its bye bye Kate & co.
We can go back to work now seeing we left Leslie in the shop all on his lonesome and he had to leave and go and deliver some flyers to the local businesses while we had a little break oh happy Friday wish I could go camping.
Cheers
