Sorry, I grew cold. Ignore the coat.
This is a terrible photo of a beautiful bag. There isn't an unadorned spot on it with even the bottom being tooled. It is large, with more zippered compartments than I will ever require, and weighs a tonne empty. If I ever did manage to fill it, I would be unable to lift it. The bag was in rough condition when I found it, and it will require some leather conditioner and polishing to bring it back, but it is still perfectly wearable and worth the $3.99 I paid for it. This makes six or seven Mexican hand tooled bags in my collection, but they're such works of art I wouldn't consider parting with any of the lot. We won't discuss my collection of belts to go with the bags...

Now, a bit about a year-long project I'm embarking on. Nebraska is having a birthday-and you're all invited to celebrate with us. 150 years of Statehood is worthy of a party. Throughout 2017, I'll be posting recipes from my many Nebraska cookbooks from homesteading days to the present. Along the way, I hope to tell you a bit about our state and do my best to convince you to visit. No one knows how to celebrate like Nebraskans, and you know there will be kolaches.
This cookbook from the Centennial in 1967 is a treasure trove of family recipes, political history, and wonderful photographs.
Mrs. Morrison, wife of Governor Morrison who held office in the 60's is ready to serve you a beautiful luncheon at the Governor's mansion.
I hope you will find this project interesting. I'm rather excited to show you the place we call home.
I'll be taking you to Chimney Rock and points West in the Spring.
