Thanks to the wonders of eBay, I finally have a Pogues 30th Anniversary beanie hat once again, two years after my brand new one mysteriously vanished in the Manchester Travelodge.

I love eBay! It's amazing what you can find on there. I remember reading a book that a friend had lent me way back when we were about 21 years old. I couldn't remember the title, only that it had been written by Patrick Dennis. I loved that story, and a search led me to discover that the title was 'Paradise'. The book was well out of print and the author no longer popular these days. After some searching of various sites including amazon I discovered a used hardcover copy on eBay. It was over $40 which I found a bit outrageous but nevertheless I ordered it and have never regretted spending that amount of money on a used book. I devoured that adored story all over again, delighting in Dennis's humour - the sort I love the most.

Congratulations on finding your beanie hat. Oh, the wonders of the internet! :)
