A wonderful trip down memory lane!

In your comment on my blog you said you might check out the Ian Rankin John Rebus detective series. If you do, start with the first book! Do you use the website stopyourekillingme.com It is wonderful since it lists all the books in series in order plus it has detective series by subject, like women, Victorian, British, etc.
Oh Lady Jane, I must add that the 50s slide show is fabulous. Hopalong Cassidy is there, I had an outfit like his and a toy horse named Topper. The cute comic books like Lulu, the classic sled, etc.
What a great trip down through time!
