bonus closet post: things i have found in our closets

When I went into the study area of the summer kitchen closet in our master bedroom, I found some stuff left there by the studious Brinkleys of yore. Said stuff included a complete set of Funk and Wagnall's New Encyclopedia (I forgot to check what year it was, but I'm guessing it's from the seventies).

It also included a copy of the 1976 Farmer's Almanac.

There was also a box with some glassware in it, which, judging by the newspaper with which it was packed, has been sitting in that closet since 1971.

Ah, history.

Incidentally, the leather case at the very bottom of the first photo contains three empty glass bottles labeled with various liquor types (one for whiskey, one for rum, etc.). Clearly, a study aid.
