I researched and found the ‘poi balls‘. That was a surprise. She likes them, as I knew she would. I got two sets — one for the family (i.e., I) as well, but she has appropriated that set too. That is OK. SMILE. I know where they are and she lets me play with her toys. She knows which way her bread is buttered.
Keeps her happy.
This was the first time she was able to go outside and do it.
These ‘603 Estate Sales‘ are addictive. Lot of fun. Very nice folks that run it and you can always get a deal. We go for what I call ‘the sport’. Nothing we want. Nothing we need. Nothing that we are getting to resell for a profit. Mainly to see if there is anything — somewhat unique — that catches our eye and we can get at a deal. They, after the first few hours, will majorly discount prices and entertain offers.
We did NOT get any of the items pictured above. We got a few items and I have NOT taken any pictures of them as yet. We spent $40. I think we spent $60 at the last one — in Derry.
We have been to about five or six of these — once every few months. Miss some due to other conflicts.
This one, in Manchester, was a lot of fun. Least crowded we have been to, which was good as it was also the smallest of the houses we have been. Not as frantic as other sales. That was good. Lot of good deals. But, we really didn’t want any.
The ‘cricket’ poster for $40 cracked me up. I have seen it and I am sure I have a smaller version of it, in printed form, somewhere in my extensive cricket collection. Wonder if it sold.
As somebody who lives, openly, on the Web it really doesn’t bother me that much that Google is now keeping track of my travels.
Most of where I go, of import & interest, gets reported on this blog anyway. So, I kind of don’t care.
This, I know, will bother some — quite rightly. Scary what the police could do with it. Good job I have no secret travels and very few secrets, if any.
In a way I regret that ‘Google Maps‘ has not been around all my long (and semi-illustrious) life. Would be nice to have a log of all the places I have visited given that I used to travel EXTENSIVELY. The other day I TRIED to count the countries I have visited. I got to around 39. I might have been to a few more.
Oh, there are quite a few mistakes in the Timeline.
‘Google Maps’ lists Rockland, Maine, as a NEW place I visited. Oh, dear! First time I have been to Rockland with ‘Google Maps’. That is the problem with this stuff.
