And Father's Day Is STILL a Good Time to Buy a Book

Where's Waldo? In Dixon in July 2022!


Find Waldo Local has been around for 10 years now!  Unbelievable.  Still recall the first (or was it second) year, Larry and I took a short road trip through Iowa.  One stop was Decorah where there are many sights, including an independent bookstore, historic theatre (with hotel connected to it housing plenty of interesting black&white photos), a Norwegian-American museum and an art centre.  Nearby is the Seed Saver site as well as an old mine (lead, I think?) open for tours.  During that visit, inside the art centre, I espied Waldo!  I called home to Books on First and asked our staffer Douglas (who dressed up as an excellent Waldo -- I have to search for a photo) whether it counted on my stamp card if I found a Waldo in another town, not Dixon.  Douglas said in an uncertain tone, "Let me check."  I couldn't let him continue all confused so I said, "It's me, Carolyn!"  I don't believe he was amused.
