VTT - What Was I Thinking?
I think I have to echo Molly's sentiment this week - "What was HE thinking?"! Mister brings home more darn junk (yes, junk!) than you can imagine. His excuses are - "Well, it was free at the dump . . . on the side of the road . . . the only one left . . . only $5.00 . . . I might need it someday, etc., etc."! Here's a sampling:
Tools at yard sales - ya wanna know how many tools we have in our barn? Tooooooo many!
Miscellaneous odds & ends, like these old bulbs. These are one of those "you never know" type of items.
Chairs. They're his weakness. We could open a chair museum (seriously!). This one happens to be a beauty and I have a piece of fabric to reupholster it with. But one has only so much space in their house for a certain amount of chairs! (Just a side note - the box in the background is a cat "toy". One will go inside and another on top or in front of it, and they paw at each other!)
Books. His other weakness. These are from a set of Grolier Lands and Peoples, 1920's. He has, literally, thousands of books - in the house, basement, barn, and shed. I do like it when he brings home the old ones!
Here's the granddaddy of them all, which makes one really ask, "What were you thinking?"! A piano. It's a nice older one, forget the name, and it's worth something we were told. But . . . no one knows how to play it, and it takes up valuable space in the living room! Mister says that maybe someday someone might want to learn how to play it. NOT!
Me? I never bring home anything that's not valuable or useable! I'm a perfect little angel!
Now, scurry over to Suzanne's to see what other nonsense is in store for you today!
