My pod neighbour at work has an iron peeing Scottie dog. I was quite surprised to see one at the auction. After about 30 minutes, the peeing dog was brought forward. I decided I would only pay $20.00 at the most. However, when the bidding climbed to $20, I really became determined to win. As you can see, I did:
I think having lucky number 17 helped!
There was a bucket o’ stuff that I was also going to bid on. It had a couple of wooded airplanes in the bottom. The rest of the stuff had very little value to me – it wasn’t worth much either. I said I would cap my bidding at $20. However, me and a guy across the room go into a bit of a bidding war. I was shocked when we got up to $40! Regardless, I kept the battle going and when the guy seemed a little hesitant at $52.50, I decided to bail out. Man, did he ever euchre himself! It wasn’t worth anywhere near that. Ah, revenge! He bought the airplane lamp I really wanted a few items prior to the bucket….. *sheepish grin*
Chuck got me an amazing airplane table and a really cute pedal airplane. I’m going to use the pedal-plane for a photo shoot with the kitties.
I bought a couple of wooden things (I have no idea what they are!) for my friend. She saw them in a picture I took of some items when I went a few days earlier. Actually, I only noticed the one. It came up toward the end of the auction, when they were really flying through the items. I opened the bid at $5.00 then yelled “Sold for $5.00!” Tee hee! Actually, the auctioneer said it a second after me, so I did in fact win the item. I thought I was seeing things when he held up an identical one a few items later. When he asked for an opening bid, I yelled “Isn’t that a two for one!” Everyone laughed and I received the second item. Another thing I lucked out on was a treadmill for $10.00!
We all had a great time, despite being very pooped from the rather long day.
Today, I visited my mother in Fonthill. I didn’t stay too long because I had to get my presentation ready for my Recreational Aircraft Association meeting tomorrow night.
I just thought I would remind you of how cute Mya and Abby are:
Today’s symptoms: A little tired and weak from doing so much yesterday. My jaw is hurting quite a bit, I had a headache and a slew of aches and pains in my arms and hands.
