I finally got my books and record albums put away. Now I don't have to hunt all over for something. I hooked up my 62 Phonola and played records all day

Hans, that looks beautiful!
I so wanted to set up a room like that when we bought our house.
Bookcases, stereo, computer, maybe a couple of recliners.
Going on ten years later, it still doesn't exist.
Having never been homeowners before, I guess I greatly underestimated the amount of work and expense involved with it.
You and I may have never even met, but I'm so happy for you having a place for your vacuums, your great library, etc.
Hopefully, you have a great kitchen too!
Enjoy!

Barry

Thanks..everyone.

It sure has been a long time getting everything done, We have been working on this since the middle of December....We had to wait for the estate to be settled, re survey the land etc, hopefully by next week we will be moved,I loved the wood trim too, and the small bedroom has beautiful paneling as does the dining room, which I love, The books are probably 75 percent cookbooks..LOL it was a 3 BR house, but we decided one would be better used as a library.

And I personally know you have all of Betty Feezor's cookbooks as well as some very old, very not-politically-correct cookbooks celebrating the foods of the old South. A wealth of cooking knowledge not even the Food Network has.

Betty Feezor

Now she was quite a legend in the southeast. Do you remember when she had the cooking show on TV shown in Charlotte and the surrounding areas?

Her son is a work colleague of mine.

Hans, it is Bob. He is based in Washington, DC, but was in Charlotte at one time. When Betty died, the city of Charlotte all but closed down for a day out of respect for her and the funeral was huge.

Yes, Bob was the youngest, born in

1959, He co wrote her last cookbook, She had the material together but got sick and couldn't finish it, I remember watching her funeral which WBTV broadcast live with my Grandmother in 1978,When her husband died her old house was for sale in Stonehinge, We went and looked at it, just for nostalgias sake, A wonderful lady.
