The Coronavirus Find

Since the beginning of March 2020, Martha and I have pretty much been self-quarantined and passing the time by sorting our collection and house hunting online. A few weeks ago I returned back to work, and while breaking for lunch one day last week, I saw my first estate sale—I could not resist and had to stop. After looking thru and finding a few neat items, I went to pay for them. It was then I recognized the face of the woman I was talking to. Not much on names, but I felt strongly that we knew each other. After a little back and forth conversation, we found that we both attended high school together with Cathie being a sophomore and myself a senior. It was then when leaving, I told her about the Laurel History Boys and my obsession with searching for items from Laurel. A few hours later, Cathie presented these to me. Not one of the items did we own until today.
