I don't buy things all that often on eBay. It comes in spurts and has no rhyme or reason for when I decide to look for something. A couple of weeks ago I decided to look for cat themed Bento Boxes and when I saw this one, I had to have it
Anyway, over the weekend I was browsing eBay again in search of potentially adding some Stablemates to my congas. I was quite surprised when I went to the main page on Saturday and saw this
Back to the stablemates...I ended up finding 3 being sold by the same person and they were molds I conga so I put a G2 Appaloosa and a G2 Clydesdale in my cart then sent a 'best offer' for the other G2 Appaloosa I wanted. That one was a bit scuffed up and I didn't think it was worth what she was asking so I offered a little less (more?) than half. I always get that mixed up which word should be used. She had it at a price and my offer was half plus a dollar. Anyway, she accepted the offer and sent me an invoice with the total then mailed it yesterday. This package I didn't have to wait near as long for because she lived in Phoenix! She mailed it Monday and I got it Tuesday. Hurray!
We've been getting some pretty good storms the past few days. Yesterday the sun was shining then all of a sudden it got super dark and was raining. Then the sun came out again, but a short while later it got dark and rainy again. It was crazy. And for a short time they had to close one of the two roads that lead in and out of my business because of flooding. Luckily, the road reopened before it was time to leave for the day. Then last night, about 8:00 or so, it started pouring again and there was quite a bit of thunder. The fire department had to do some water rescues yesterday. I wonder how many of them will be charged with the Stupid Motorist Law...what that is, is anyone who goes around a marked road block warning people of flooding ahead or that the road is closed during flooding, if they get stuck and the fire department has to come and get them out, they are fined. I don't know what the fine is, but I imagine that combined with being shown on the news is likely enough to make you think twice before doing it again. Surprisingly, knowing about the law and seeing other water rescues on the news doesn't keep people from driving through flooded washes. Complete idiots, they are. I don't care if you want to risk your life and damage your vehicle by doing that, but you put the lives of the firefighters at risk when they have to come pull your stupid ass out of the water.
Well, I guess that's it for now! Happy Wednesday!
