I have to give credit where credit is due. It's neat when you read a blog and it makes you think of something in your life to write about. The Runaround Ranch Report lady has turtle bookends on the log in her pond today. Made me think how hard I was looking for bookends recently when I was redoing my bedroom after many years. I always have a few books waiting in the wings to be read so I wanted some bookends that matched the new decor to put on my night stand. I decided people must not use bookends much anymore. Couldn't find many so I finally resorted to a different way to keep my "next books to read" neat. That brought more memories of bookends, the old pair I still have which doesn't match my room. They are made of wood and are a mexican man and woman taking a siesta. Sitting with their back to the books napping. They were a souvenier from my senior trip to Mexico. Not senior citizen but high school senior class in 1954 to the bullfights and shopping. Humm that Mexican couple have been napping a long time and a lot of water has run under the bridge.
