Things found in books
The Ebony Swan - Phyllis A. Whitney

I love finding things people leave in books but this is the first time I've found something that I left in a book almost 30 years ago!  

 

 

I am sick so I decided to stay in my pajamas and rest in bed.  I had pulled out this book to read next because I was sure it was the book I'd had the longest.  It is also a hardcover book and they take up too much room in my shelves.  I started reading it and came across a piece of paper printed in red that looked like a $5 bill.  They were called Safety Bucks.  It is from my first job as a teen which I got when I was 17.  I think this was from 1989 when I was 18.  I really didn't remember much about these but my husband just said they could be used to buy things at the hotel.  I think they were earned for not being injured on the job for a certain length of time.  

 

 

This is the time when I met my husband (he worked there too) and in September 1st, 1991 we were married.

Read up before your next trip
Hidden Treasures of London - Michael McNay
It could do with a few more photos, and many of the hidden treasures are churches, but still a rather good listing. It will add at least a few stops when you are in London.
