[JHRB News] New SPRING Catalog of Antiques & Art Books

Spring has finally come to Foggygates and the  Book Elves are in full
fettle, cleaning up winter debris, getting the flower beds in order and
expanding the vegetable garden beds on the side lawn. Never ones to take a
long route when a shorter, more dramatic one is available, the Book Elves
decided to employ what they termed “advanced quarrying techniques”  to
break up the new beds. . .

What I find most troubling about the ensuing “incident” (as the State
Police report terms it) isn’t simply that they attracted the attentions of
the fine folks at Homeland Security when they advertised for 2 cases of
dynamite on Craigslist, it’s that they were actually able to purchase
them, rig them, and send half of our lawn sailing into the Connecticut
River before anyone could stop them.

But before they created a really dandy crater in the yard which we can use
as a root cellar, and sent a new island floating lazily south on the
Connecticut River, in the direction of Hartford, the Book Elves finished
our new Spring Catalog, which features almost 300 books and catalogs on
furniture, folk art, ceramics, glass, silver, metalwares, fine arts &
prints, many from the reference library of a noted Connecticut antiques
dealer.
