So, this book, I just found here, is selling for up to $300 online. That's IF you can find it. I not only have this book, but I paid $5.00 for it from Richard, himself (ok, his assistant), and it has his autograph in it.
Oh, yeah, baby. ;)
I read it, today, in a matter of minutes. It's 22 pages long, I think, so quick read, for sure. But it was sweet. It's the true story of how Richard tried to surprise his wife with a baby grand piano for Mother's Day and she accidentally finds out about it. Short and sweet.
Made me think of this last Christmas. A big box arrived via some parcel service and my husband told me it was from a friend of ours. I sort of panicked because we hadn't thought of getting them anything. I insisted on going to the store and getting them a gift, asap. So, we did. :)
What my husband may have forgotten, not unlike RPE, is that I'm in charge of the bills. ;) I saw that a significant amount of money had been spent by one of us, most likely not myself. (haha)
Upon examining the aforementioned box, I noticed it had a range of numbers in the form of "mm". That got me putted the pieces together in my head.... don't cameras deal with "mm"s? I want a camera... someone spent a lot of money on something recently...
So, I knew (figured, rather) that I was getting a camera for Christmas.
And I did. A really nice, somewhat expensive camera that I wasn't expecting till my 50th wedding anniversary.
And it wasn't from our friends. ;)
To this day, my husband doesn't know I knew but played along, anyway. And he doesn't read this blog so the secret is between you and me. ;)
