ought to go there since it’s an actual library. I called, didn’t get a hold of anyone. I then decided to take a few steps backwards.
I called Carol, my father’s wife, and told her about this place. I also said that his additional books could be sent to me, media rate. She thought this was an excellent idea. Recall that a few year’s back she suggested that I attempt to sell them and we’d split the profits. Since the books were going nowhere, I decided to wait.
I next called Karen, one of Carol’s neighbors. Karen has been Carol’s advocate now for over a year and was instrumental in getting her into an assisted living home. Karen is now orchestrating the house sale. Right now, it’s buy as is, but if it doesn’t sell it will go into the hands of a realtor.
I told Karen about my wish, that the books get into the hands of the right person, and she said that she agreed with me, and in fact that she’d been careful about who she allowed in the house because she didn’t want them to go through the books.
Karen agreed to mail me, media rate, my father’s books, and to make contact with the Amherst museum. I said they probably would want an overview of the collection and what’s in it, and that I could not do that from here. This, I foresaw, as being the major stumbling block.
Karen obviously has a very strong get er done attitude. She is going to add this to her list of things to do. This, her taking on the book project, goes hand-in-hand with everything else she’s been doing.
I am relieved to have had her take on this project; hence, the up part of the day. I am also saddened by the fact that I can’t go to NH and look at the collection and a few other things my father owned, as is. The books, they were a priority and they have been taken care of, thank dog.
