For a few years back during the nineteen nineties my mother and i use to own and operate a small antique store uptown (or is it downtown?) here where we live buying and selling just about anything old and i totally love going to and browsing through yard sales and flea markets and antique stores...

Nice table, but does it convert somehow...if you look on the side it appears odd, in that, it may be elongated.

That is the same kind of ancient cabinet I would see in my hunts and they usually wanted way too much money...in the lines of $135-150.

I am on the hunt for old leather-working tools, but no luck so far.

How can I describe my day. We collected winter coats and drove around town for 3 hours looking for troopers (what we call homeless here) and handed out winter coats. That was cool. They were so happy. We found five cold people.Then came back to deliver a burger to Whaler, back to the field and round up a brood mare. Took a 4 month old stud colt for a walk, halter training, who crashed up against me fighting the lead shank and kicked me in the knee tissueguy.gif Pretty emotional day.

It was an awesome day AS. I really can't think of a more satisfying way to spend my time than looking for cold and wet people to make warm and dry.

And it makes you cry to see how willing they are to accept the offer. Nothing but the offer of warmth and caring. And it didn't cost anything!

Thanks WR hug.gif an:d US :hug knee is fine just a little sore.

Still feel pretty good about yesterday woohoo.gif they say money CAN make you happy. By giving it away. Ironic eh? I haven't got money to give away but there's plenty less fortunate than me. We put a $1 lottery ticket in each pocket too rofl.gif
It was fun.

When I was downtown and walking past an elderly man sitting on the edge of a city planter he asked me for money. I said 'why do you need money', he told me he was on disability and then gave me a detailed summary of how much money he had coming in and how much money was going out on bills. I gave him a toonie and he was very grateful...I don't know if it made me happy, per se, because then I started feeling sorry for disabled people collecting a disability cheque that was too little to live properly on.

Good for you, even a little helps and more than that, knowing someone cares enough to even stop and say hello.
