Finally got my Economics book while everyone else was at lunch. Boy! Took 'em long enough to find one for me.
Kind of a busy day at school topped off by meeting Terry over the river afterwards. I passed up a chance to be an aid during 6th period. It's hell trying to get to my locker at the end of the day!
Anyway, we went to Ticketron and finally got the tickets for TREK. General admission.
I picked up dinner with what was left after the Economics book, a TV GUIDE and more tickets for dad. Then we went to the grand opening of the new Kidd's bookstore. Weird. Totally different. Not sure I like it at all.
Got home to find TBG, RBCC and a Con letter but still no records! Ugh!
Watched a preview of the new Saturday morning fare on CBS tonight. Not sure if I'm just outgrowing Saturday mornings or if this stuff just isn't as good as it used to be.
NOTES: In answer to that last question, that stuff just wasn't as good as it used to be. By the mid-seventies, Saturday morning was constrained by budgets and even more so by the bluenoses who wanted everything for kids to be cheery, happy and non-violent. Oh, and it also apparently had to be preachy and moralistic. Yeesh!
The old Kidd's bookstore had been a real favorite of mine. The new one...not so much. Can't remember now why they HAD to move but their new location a few blocks away seemed an attempt at modernizing. A sad, ultimately failed attempt at modernizing!
I was being very impatient about the records. In those days it was generally said that one should "allow-3-4 weeks for delivery" and that's often about how long it took. Nowadays with less mail, a package might get across the country in 2 business days.
As far as the locker, some things never change. My son came home today from High School and said he'd convinced them to give him a different, closer locker so he wouldn't miss the bus home!
