For starters…I’ve found ebay…there are few things (at this age) quite so satisfying as seeing the stuff you are ready to give up be exchanged for cash. I tend to have some addiction problems with stuff…kind of like a dog with a bone with lots of roast beef still attached…you can’t get it away from me.
Someone told me (Deb) not to throw away my wooden thread spools because someone will buy them..WHO IS GONNA BY THREAD SPOOLS. Well, I put 25 of them out there and I got more for them then I got for a 3 antique bowl set.
I was sitting in the bank manager’s office today doing some..banking…I was curious about the layout of her office compared to the tellers and wanted to turn around and check out her vantage point..and then I wondered if she has a little bank alarm button under her desk..and then I wondered if she frequently looks out the window that is partially “blinded” to see who/what is coming in..like you can tell a criminal from the rest of the public any more..and then I wondered if she was ever afraid to sit in the bank..I mean bank robberys are quite popular these days. I wanted to ask her all of those questions..but I was afraid she would push the bank alarm button under her desk and pull out her 9 mm smith and wesson and blow my head off…
When I left the bank, I was thinking about everything I had been thinking about and wondered…do people find me annoying because I’m so curious, because I ask a lot of questions…and I don’t need ANYONE to say..No, Nina…that is not why we find you annoying.
..and then I wonder how much better off I am today due to privacy laws. I’m a 50 something hick in smalltown Iowa and have tried to handle my mother and my aunts death and estate problems. I couldn’t even cancel the damn cable and Direct TV accounts without sending them a copy of the death certificate…you’ve gotta be kidding me. The phone company didn’t have a problem..but the cable company..There should be some healthy privacy rules to protect us…but the cable company. I basically said…fine..she has no money, she has no estate..I’m offering to pay her last bill if you want to pencil in my address otherwise…she won’t be watching TV anymore and you won’t be receiving any money from her and they said NO..they had to have a death certificate..so…all you other cable subscribers out there just got screwed because you have to pay her last bill….
In going thru stuff last night – I thru out the girls clay art projects from elementary school…one is 28 and the other is 22…it’s probably time…but it was hard to do….
That’s all that is on my mind right now…I have to get back to ebay, people..it is calling.
Until next time….
