I hope I never

We have a book sale at the library pretty much every other month. It's run by the "Friends" group and this year a lot of the old timers have moved on to other opportunities, or got so tired of sorting hundreds of books, that they just didn't want to come back.
So, there is a new crop and there is a distinct difference with this group.
I sat at the first floor reference desk today and watched as three of them would every once in a while come up to use a computer to sell books on Amazon. they would cart a box up from the lower level, and just check prices. I don't know if I'm more stunned or jealous of their zeal.
I'm sure they are helping with the process of the sale and that's all that essentially matters, but having watched these older ladies toil away selflessly year after year to make some money to help the organization, it's basically become something that you can participate in to make a profit; just what chipping in is all about.
