Of little account

VolDad phoned me the other day and amongst his general news and asking after Cletus, he told me he'd found a family heirloom - maybe.

At some point, Fred Thompson had signed a book for my grandfather - I guess it was this one. And at some point, my grandfather had loaned or given the book to my dad. Since my dad hasn't been his son-in-law for almost 20 years, it had to have been a long, long time ago.

My dad and I speculated that the book would soon be valued at a lot more - or a lot less. But at any rate, he'd give me the book if I wanted it.

I told VolMom, a life long Dem, about the rediscovered tome and she said "Well, I hope it stays worthless."
