Model Magic

The Boonville, Indiana summer steam and gas engine show was this past weekend, and Susan and I motored over and spent most of the day visiting with exhibitors and taking photos and videos. The highlight of the day was buying some 1920's sheet music for our collection. Dear Wife is great at bargaining and she picked up eight new-to-us songs for $6.00. One of them is a Sophie Tucker song with Sophie's autograph on the cover. Yes, the Red Hot Mama once held it in her hot little hand.

We saw the modeler Jerry Dickson again, and the video above shows some of his treasures. We will post more Boonville highlights in the weeks ahead.
