The sky is falling!

January 22nd, 2008 at 04:00 pm

Okay, not really but one never knows. It could happen! In light of that, I read and collect books on alternative methods of doing things and plain and simple living. Even if the sky doesn't fall, it can't hurt to have some skills that might be handy in case errr....mmm, well, in case the sky falls! I have some of the Foxfire books but have coveted #3 for awhile.

Some months ago I added it to my wish list at Paperback Swap and recently got email saying someone had it to offer so I snagged it. Today it arrived in the mail and I've been reading it. Interesting stuff.

I mean, come on, who doesn't need to know how to tan a hide, make a banjo, churn butter, build a smokehouse, and make a broom? Those skills might come in handy should the sky ever fall. Besides, the book was free and that's a good thing and I've lately wanted to read something other than email...

    I used to love the Foxfire books, just for the insight into the way things used to be. Don't think I'll be using any of those skills soon....

    That's how I am, too. I don't really think I will ever need the skills but I love reading the stories about the people and how they do things. It's just good reading!

    I remember those - they were fascinating. I got my interest in learning how to can food from Foxfire.
