Simple Pleasures: Old Issues of National Geographic

I am practicing constant vigilance. Really I am. But when I saw this towering stack of National Geographic circa 1965-75 in the "free" bin outside my favorite thrift store, I paused. I hemmed. I hawed. And then I thought, What am I? Made of stone?

They smell musty. But I don't care. I'm working my way through, an issue at a time. Have you ever rescued a stack of these yellow spined beauties?

I cannot throw anything away, I have piles of magazines and everytime I must throw them away I feel guilty, I can relate to that !

In my school it's usual people donate school books. This year I helped in the separation and distribuition of them. In one of the bags I found a pile of National Geographic Magazines both the American and Portuguese issues from 1982 to 2005. At the end the school direction allowed me to keep all the magazines. Now I can read N.G. magazines that are, some of them older than me.
