I really can’t linger long enough to write much today. I’m busy on eBay. When the time is right, the iron is hot, the moment is now- I love eBay. I have gotten a few prize items there. I weaned myself off eBay by starting a b**g so it’s been almost a year since I bid on anything. I think this is akin to going from heroin to methadone but ah well…
Here are two cool things I got on eBay: this giant vintage celestial globe and this 1965 Streamliner Airstream travel trailer. Her name is Priscilla. I bought Priscilla under the influence of PMS for the low low Buy It Now price of 4900.00, which was an excellent deal.
She is in mint condition (I mean MINT); she only had one owner who kept her parked in Estes Park, CO. When the owner died the kids listed her on eBay as a Buy-It Now item but unwisely for them and fortunately for me the auction started at 2 AM. I bought her at 2:01 AM. Ah, the joys of insomnia. Right after I hit the button I went to bed , slept like a baby, woke up and realized I needed to retrieve her from Colorado within 7days, cash in hand. Sigh. Anyway, today she serves as overflow housing out at Wit’s End and guests love her pink Formica charm.
Today I am watching a car for Dan. He is driving a 1985 Honda with 248,000 miles on it and he could have/would have driven it another good distance except a deer came through his driver’s side window. Busted out the glass, stuck her head in his lap, bounced out and raced off into the woods with his mirror. I’m thankful that he wasn’t hurt at all; I asked him what he did and he said, "I screamed like a girl." The front fender fell off shortly after that and he now has that tied on with rope and duct tape but with no side window, a bashed-in door, a hanging bumper and dangling headlights- he needs a new old car. So I’m watching one closely-so far the reserve price has not been met.
I strongly encourage you to click on this link while you listen to the audioblog: it certainly typifies the best of eBay. Be sure to read the description.
