the virtues of patience...i got this in the mail today. i went on e-bay after my bad thrifting experience last week, (they never did call me back regarding those magazines) and i not only found ones like i saw at the thrift store, i found these french publications as well. i won them for 99 cents plus shipping, (can you believe it!?) and they are full of great photos of JFK and the family. they are also full of the photos of that day, and the ones that followed. i have two more coming in the mail, (i won those for $3.50!) and if they are anything like these, i will be very pleased. yes, they are a bit worn, but i am not a 'collector' in the sense that i want them for any financial value. they are fine for me just as they are, with the folds and scuffs...i want to look at them occasionally, not just wrap them up, and then stick them away somewhere.

Superscore! Nothing feels as good, shoppin-wise, as that, does it?
