Few years back I wired a new home for an older couple, they lived out of state for years but built a house on the farm where he grew up after retiring.I only have some PBs dating back to the late 60, early 70s. I feel like such a failure.
Some time after they were moved in I was doing something in that house, can't remember what but happened to notice he had all of his old PBs dating way back to the early years all in bookcases in the main room. Don't know of many wives that would allow that. Wouldn't be surprised if he didn't have nearly every one he purchased new, as well as maybe sought out any his collection was missing.
