  •  spent the day doing errands. many books back to (7+ / 0-)

    library; go to the Recycler's to see what they have... came away with $30 of brass for Mr Steampunk, love of my life. did not do the flea market as we were both too blah. did a couple of grocery shops on the way home, so it'll be a couple of days before we have to take the car out again at all.

    watched the Sat. cartoons (Clone Wars & Turtles), and Sunday morning CBS (Wayne Brady!!!), and another chunk of the last installment of Prohibition...  Satellite box had a little stroke the other day, so we're panicking about the blinkety-blank thing dying on us! putting everything immediately on the extra hard drive! and trying to empty that, of course. Luckily the spring replacement shows look TOTALLY uninteresting!

    "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...

    •  no recycle shop around here; I have to rely on (8+ / 0-)

      online stuff.  Shipping always adds to the cost of any bargains I can find but at least I found out why my bids at an Italian auction house were rejected.

      (frustrating fact of life is British and Euro auctions have the best Victorian and earlier stuff.  As one British auctioneer told me, they have 400 years history of "collecting" things from around the world while for most Americans, we have only been at it 100 years or so)
