FUN FRIDAYS

This Fun Friday all started with last weekends neighborhood annual yard sale sponsored by one of the Realtors in our area. My neighbor Deb, from Possible Impossible Studios hoped in her truck and we covered about 50 or so yard sales. We had a great time running from one place to another finding great things. This was my greatest find, a Burroughs adding machine from about the 1920's with original tape intact. The best part of it all was the cost, only $15.00 what a deal. I could hardly lift it but managed to do so since I wasn't going to leave it behind, especially at that price. Apparently it once belonged to this families Grandfather and was used in his store. Imagine the stories it could tell. It now resides on the dresser in a spare bedroom and my youngest son has claimed it as his! I think he is the only one in the family who appreciates my crazy collecting ways and loves all things old. I'm pleased that he liked it so much, after all someone is going to want to keep some of my treasures and it would be nice if it was one of my adult children. Maybe a Grandchild will love this stuff, who knows, as I say to each his own. Meanwhile I will have had the Fun of the Find!
