My mother lived through the Great Depression. She used to tell me stories about how she would get her hands on a Sears & Roebuck catalog, and go through it circling item after item, turning down the page corners to mark especially winsome articles of clothing or particularly striking pieces of household goods. After she’d marked hundreds of dollars worth of purchases, she’d dust her hands off and go back to work.
Eventually the catalog would end up in the outhouse and be put to very good use indeed.
I do that with J. Peterman Company catalogs. Not the outhouse part, but most definitely the turning down of pages. I don’t order very often, but ah! the dreaming is magnificent.
On rainy days, like the last few have been here in Georgia, I wonder what the bees dream about. Do they carry in their little bee brains a catalog of winsome tastes in nectars, exquisite varieties of pollen, and the very safest locations for retrieving water?
I hope so.
