I'm going to take a break from trying to sell our latest book, The Zen of Beard Trimming, and just write about these 40 Dean Martin 45's we found at The Salvation Army last night. To be precise, 39 Dean Martin 45's and one by Buck Owens. Apparently someone had amassed an enormous Dean Martin collection while they were alive, and someone else had decided it wasn't important enough to keep, sell, or pass on to someone who might have wanted it. They dropped it all off at The Salvation Army. Matt Helm movie posters, LP albums, framed artwork, and this box of 45's. The 45's were the only items that hadn't been priced yet, and roughly half of them were in the original picture sleeves. Since the items that already been priced were above retail, I didn't have much hope we'd be taking any of these home, but when the store manager came over frazzled and distracted, and said .35 cents each I knew we had stumbled into a little bit of good luck. So we picked out the 39 that were in picture sleeves, plus the Buck Owens "I Got a Tiger By the Tail/Crying Time" 45, and got out of there while the getting was good.
