I cleaned the glass NOOK and all that resides there in on my 2 day hiatus from blogging. The NOOK label might just have 87 million pics..
Bob and I were watching a movie that was set in the year 1944, and I spied an old oil lamp that looked very much like this one that belonged to Bob's grandmother. I said that makes me wonder how old that lamp is. Lucky ME... I had just cleaned it.
I leaped from the sofa and tried to read the name of the lamp which is printed on the little knobby thing that makes the flame go up and down... COULD NOT READ IT... grabbed the little red camera and Voila..
1st trip down the hall .... Bob! come see! I found the LAMP... It is Alladdin Model A, made in USA in the year 1932... They are still making lamps... (Bob goes back to TV)
2nd trip...Bob.. Is this the shade that was broken by your children BEFORE ME? Nope...like that but all white... I want this one, I said it will fit and I love it. OH NO 85.00.. forget it.
3rd and last trip...... Is this the shade? YES... just like that one. Wait, don't leave look at the chimmey i found on EBAY .. he looks and leaves, no comment (this was the last trip because he refused to come again even though I begged.)
