Cool new stuff

Bill and i went auctioning for the 1st time in many years. It was a big 3 day sale we did'nt make it till the last day. We got a very large box full of old kids books (turn of the century)> The neat old "McLoughlin" and "Raphael Tuck". Bill has been collecting those for years. They are beautiful. The colorful lithography. This is a sampling. 2 large boxes of doll and doll parts. And a very large and beautiful Tool chest for bill It has to be the biggest one I've ever seen. Picture frames and old scrap books. It kind of got me excited to go to more auctions.

I put together a nice shadow box. It has a picture of bills grandparents. Surrounded by a cool hair work piece that i got. And a matte that i found many years ago in an Amsterdam flea market.

The place is ours

Well, we finally have full possession of our old building. It's raining now. I'll get some pictures up soon. We lucked out and john gave us a great deal. 2000.00 less than what he 1st told us. The back roof comes off 1st and we are pouring a cement floor in the big middle room to get rid of some problems. It needs to be thoroughly aired out. It's better already. Yes Sharon it is! The old stinky mold filled carpet is GONE. The building will have life again. When i walk thru it i can hear the building talking "Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you".

"Leave my kids alone"

I know i haven't posted anything for awhile, but, this got my dander up. I was reading the paper this morning. An article about President Obama caught my eye. He was going to give a speech to the nations school kids. Surprise, the "Conservatives" are in an uproar. "The pres is trying to indoctrinate the nation's children. Some Bigots oh i mean conservative parents held signs out "leave our kids alone" . I can't believe it. If i were a conservative and i wasn't a bigot, I'd be really mad. Because when i hear the word Conservative i think Bigot, redneck, or people that hate, hate gays, or anything that is'nt like them. They really don't care about our country. But, people who hate Obama so much that they want to see him fail, even if it means screwing up our country.
C'mon folks he was giving a speech telling kids to stay in school and study hard. To hang in there when things get tough. Something you redneck parents should be telling your kids.
