    "Found" the book "BLUE THUNDER"

    Just wanted to share my little "finders" story.

    I walk into this used book shop about an hour ago. Looking thru the "true crime" section and I scan past the title "blue thunder". I do a double take and remember all the talk about a month ago about the three books on Don Arronow.

    Anyway, it's a hard cover in mint condition. I remember someone said they're going for $50 or more on Ebay. I open up the cover and see $5 written in pencil.

    Done deal. Can't wait to read it.

    I bought Blue Thunder as soon as it was released. At the time, it made for some very interesting reading. Several years ago I had lent it out and it was never returned. I had been watching for it on ebay and several other sites but I did not have much luck. Unknown to me, my wife had found a perfect copy somewhere on the net and she bought it for a present

    She paid almost $200.00 for it.

    dude, you scored big time!!!!!

    "To Jan and Betsy
    From "a chip off the old block"...
