Back to Cali (Discordian Psychopomp)

Well, only a week back in Wisconsin and we are preparing to head back to California for a two-month stint caring for our dear friend Bob. The Bookstore is no closer to opening than it was 3 months ago, but when an opportunity like this comes up, there's not much you can do. The heat wave here has been intense, although the situation in California looks worse.

We fly out Monday, and this weekend we'll get our last library sale here of the summer. Friday night in Reedsburg, small sale, but there's got to be something there. THen Saturday and Sunday is the amazing Kickapoo County Fair, at the Organic Valley World headquarters just up the river in La Farge.

Our friend Bo has moved into our other apartment above the Bookstore, and has cleaned out our back storage space, and is creating a killer Drum Making Shop. A perfect addition to the project.

While I was in California last month I hit a great Library sale in Palo alto where i found one of the coolest books i have ever found. A first printing, first edition copy of "The Naked Lunch" by William Burroughs. It was printed in Paris in 1959, while the book was still illegal in the US. The book seems to be worth over 1000.00. Not bad for .25 cents.
