Before we headed out to the Black Hammock we stopped by the flea market where I got a $10.00 tarot reading from a woman that calls herself Madame Suzanne who claims to be psychic. She was short and stout with messy bleached blond hair and a raspy voice. Quite the character, married 4 times with a day job as a paralegal. I found this out while observing her observing me. She was a wonderful conversationalist and an even better study of human behavioural traits... BUT she most definitely was not a psychic. Still, for ten bucks, she entertained me. She told me everything that you don't want to hear and then told me I'd be back to see her again. I won't.
The trip to the market wasn't a total loss. We stopped at a small second hand book store (located near Madame Suzanne's booth) where I found a charming first edition (published in 1930) book of verses written in German for $2.00.
It's the book in the middle with the old man in the bottle on the cover.
The Wonderful Doctor
It sort of jumped out at me and when I saw the price I grabbed it... I'm looking forward to reading and translating it!
