Once upon a cold spell in Florida winds gusting to 35 mph forced MadSnapper's hubby to stay home from the park. Three days in a row!
Alas! he was getting on MadSnapper's LAST NERVE with nothing to do but watch TV because he talked to me while I was BLOGGING!
|MadSnapper New Desk Chair|
Aha! MadSnapper thought, I need a new desk chair and I have been putting off the long trip to Bucko's Used Office furniture store, I can take Bob along for the ride to keep me company.
Arriving at Bucko's without the use of GPS SEVEN miles from home.
Alas! Alack! all the Bucko's chairs were 250.00 dollars and UP, way UP....new owner, no used chairs.
9 stores, and I felt like I had arrived in Goldilocks and the three bears story book. I sat in at least 30 chairs... I would plop down and stand up NOPE! NOPE! NOPE! add 27 more NOPES.
Store 9, I sat in 3 chairs and the 3rd one shouted, this chair is Just Right..OOPS! forgot I am not Goldilocks.
|The two of us looking in the window at a thrift store, Bob said I did not know this was here... OF COURSE not, he had never been in a thrift store. now he has|
2 mornings, 2 hours each, 3 used furniture stores and 6 thrift stores, total of 9 stores. [totaled for those of you with no calculator]
