...and other questions in need of an answer
Shaun! You've given me an idea!!
"Oranges and Peaches" ahh, that's adorable.
I’ve got The Dunlop Book of Facts from the 1960s that answers some very strange questions like these.
I so enjoyed reading these. I remember going to a library and asking questions. For me, libraries were a sacred and beautiful space. I miss them. Thank you for sharing this. I had no clue that cards like these were kept. I’m glad no names are on them!
The notes are so cute and hilarious 🦆
Marvelous! Love the duck question!
We’ve got a few libraries around our area and I’m wondering if they’ve got some interesting old index cards.
This is fantastic. Made my day.
These were ahhhmazing. I love humans.
These are too funny Shaun!
The snake biting itself is actually one I
would be interested in knowing the answer to!
"I am from Wilmington, North Carolina, and my daddy owns the second oldest lighthouse in the country. Where can I sell it?" she inquired.
The librarian, adjusting her holographic glasses, replied, "In 2061, lighthouses are invaluable, not just as historical artifacts but as beacons for time travelers. List it on the Temporal Exchange. But be cautious; selling to the wrong era could disrupt history."
Eyes wide, she imagined the futurescape, her lighthouse serving as a beacon across time. The old structure's worth had just transcended centuries.
This question caught my fancy as well.
"Please give me a list of famous men born prematurely," a young woman asked.
The librarian, an older gentleman with kind eyes, replied, "Certainly. Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo... and Jacob Cohen."
She looked puzzled. "Who's Jacob Cohen?"
He smiled warmly. "The man who sat right where you are, asking about premature births sixty years ago. Like you, he sought knowledge. We talked, shared stories, and over time, fell deeply in love."
Eyes wide, she whispered, "You're Jacob?"
He nodded, taking her hand. "And every day, I hoped someone would ask that question again, to relive our serendipitous beginning."
Oh the wonders the librariens went through
I can't stop laughing!
Thanks for putting a big smile on my face. Seeing the notes scribbled or typed on an old typewriter added to the fun.
That’s quite a good issue
