Ruth promised to come to Kansas City one day, and at the end of the conversation, I asked her what she might be looking for. "I'm not looking for anything. I don't need anything," she told me. "I just like to go and look, but if you happen to see anything nautical; that's what I'm kind of in to."
We said our goodbyes, and my sister and I went back to my parents house where I started savoring the contents of of my $3 boxes. Packed into a box of old leaflets and travel brochures, and without my knowing it, I had netted several sea-worthy discoveries -- three cardboard sailor boys, a British guide to sea safety and a booklet about tying knots. Into an envelope they went on their way to Ruth in Los Angeles.
If you're asking why the vintage TG&Y construction paper is grouped in there when it's not necessarily nautical, I thought Ruth might use it to make some folded sailor's caps!
