Happy New Year! I hope yours is off to a good start. Mine is.

Three hours ago, I was having breakfast with two friends, Jim and Janey. I worked with both on the scenic train. It was good to see their smiling faces.

We talked about lots of things, but I shared with them a story about some old books I salvaged from an old home I purchased about thirty-five years ago. The home had been owned by an architect.

The books must have been textbooks of his or books he used in his practice. They contain vast amounts of useful information and I’ve kept them all these years.

For example, the one book has a huge section in it about hydrated lime, how it’s made, how to mix it and most importantly WHY it makes such a great mortar for brick and stonework. CLICK HERE to read a column where I talk a little bit about hydrated lime.

I decided to go onto Amazon.com to see if these books had any value. GULP!

Click here to see the one book.

Click here to see the second book. This book shows as out of stock but another seller on Amazon has it for $500.00.

Do you have old textbooks like this around your home? If you don’t want them, I’ll take them! I’m serious. I’ll pay to have them shipped to my home if they’re ones I desire to add to my collection.

Until then, I remain in your loyal service –
