Went to my Dad's house this evening to pick up a couple boxes that had been found with my name on them. They had books I'd lost track of (yay! I thought they were lost!) and some random old stuff probably from a dresser. I suspect a lot of it is literally trash, but there's some neat things, too, like a piece of paper with a song on it that a foreign exchange student my Dad hosted wrote out for me in Japanese.

Poked through the boxes of books getting garage-saled and found a handful I wanted. I never realized my Dad read so many trashy military thrillers.

Best of all: found the pile of old Analog magazines from the 70s! I'm looking forward to finding out what the future looked like 30 years ago...

When I was a teenager, I found my dad's old collection of "Treasure Chest" magazines -- think "Boys Life" for Catholic kids -- and I read them all. It was hilarious learning about how, if the Communists take over, they will make us all report our parents for being Catholic.

[Boorish Alert!]

Hilarious maybe, but basically true.

That was the good part about the scrapbooks in my parents' basement. (Well, that, and the earliest photos I ever took. I need to scan or photograph them--they're surprisingly interesting.)
