I always find it interesting how people think of the same thing at the same time. In less than two days, two people asked me if I could provide them with autographed bookplates. It's been a few years since I've owned any but I live to serve. After all, how hard could it be? I started with my independent bookstore even though they refused to carry my book. It was fun looking around trying to find some. When I had no luck, I asked one of the employees. I was a little shocked when she did not even know what I wanted let alone where to find them. After waiting another 5 minutes for the person who might know where they would be, I headed off to Barnes and Noble. I looked around and still could not find them. The first employee hadn't a clue but the second one did. They were on top of the bookmarks! I had my choice of a world map or butterflies. I chose the butterflies. They are manufactured by Antioch in Ohio. So after spending nearly two hours searching, I now have bookplates to autograph. If you're interested, let me know. I have seven left and once they are gone, I don't think I'll be able to accommodate people again. Who would have thunk it? As my friend Bernie would say, "No good deed goes unpunished."
