Hi Gang,

Got my 'normal-sized' paperbacks ready to auction off ... found a little over 450 I can part with. 
(There must be a box missing somewhere. I was sure I had some other titles I was going 
to let go ... <shrug />)  I'm gonna give my baby sister first shot at them.

I'm in the middle of cataloging the 78 RPM records I'm going to try to sell off ... [30+ years ago 
I found a box somebody was throwing away ... I've been carting them around ever since] ... some 
neat stuff in there (Fats Waller, Tex Beneke, Fats Domino, Bob Wills, etc.) ... and some really 
strange stuff:

-- The 'Hoosier Hot Shots' singing "The Coat And The Pants Do All The Work (And The Vest 
Gets All The Gravy)". {Although it might be more fun to hear a remake by NIN.}

-- I wish I had a table that would play 78s ... I'd *really* like to head 'Johnny Bond and His Red River 
Valley Boys' sing "So Round, So Firm, So Fully Packed" ... it just sounds so ... so ... intriguing.  ;-)

Hey, anybody know what a 'Saestyksella' is? [I think it's a Finnish word for a musical instrument.] 
One of these buggers features music on Harmonikka, Kitaran, and this thing. Wild guess ... could 
it be 'accordian'?

(Oooo ... Found a Charlie Barnet record last night with vocals by Lena Horne!)
