Is it a Nancy Drew collectible? Funny Sauce by Delia Ephron

Is it a Nancy Drew collectible? 

I have some odd things in my Nancy Drew collection.  A much coveted camera from Her Interactive, a panel from the 1970's Nancy Drew TV show that used to hang on the side of a building showing where the show's titles and optical department was located, a framed copy of the Swedish cover of Whistling Bagpipes and many many items made by fans!  But I want to call  your attention to a little known article by Delia Ephron that is easily found in many used bookstores in her book called, Funny Sauce.  I am a huge fan of the Ephron sisters, Nora, Amy and Delia. I love their humor and I was thrilled to have Amy Ephron on my airplane several years ago, so I got to gush to her about how much I enjoyed her family and their writing!  Anyway, Delia Ephron has a little bit called "Famous Couples Discuss Their Divorces." It can be found in the collection of her essays called Funny Sauce. And Nancy and Ned discuss their divorce.  Is it really a Nancy Drew collectible? Well, it might not go right beside my first edition of Shadow Ranch, but it has a place on my bookshelves.

2018 Postcard: California

These are some different views of California, not San Francisco or Los Angeles. We have friends who live in the "country" in California, not the big cities and I get postcards from them. Also I have friends and family who travel all over California and send me cards from their travels.
