Stories the ledger tells

I found a great old ledger at the antique store; it told so many stories...
first, it couldn't make up its mind what year it wanted to be from...
 it kept track of money in the bank...
detailed mother's illness...
kept track of funeral expenses...
money loaned to Franz...
and all about the raisin crop.
This weekend I'm at the Colorado State Button Society's Annual Show!
Who knows what kinds of buttons I'll come back with?
Who knows what stories they will tell?
