oh, another good one. much to see. east side craftsman bungalow. world traveler. i asked and i recieved. she lived for a while in mongolia. and joined the peace corp at 70 yrs old, OR in 1970. they said she was 70 yrs, but you know, might be the other way, but did she have some fun stuff. couldn't afford the old books there, but got too much, BUT did find an authentic printmaker's drawer. has a 1800's drawer pull and 'legs'. i wanted one, but had to be right. more mexican ceramic critters. fish, cat and squirrel. and a rice cake mold. which i was able to tell them because i just discovered them on ebay. aha! and someone else said a maple sugar mold. please, it is a koi fish! wish i had had more time. still spent tooooo much.

i took spanish. first heard of schadenfreude on the end message of a dharma and greg.
wilberforce(must be sir wilber, the book doesn't have his given name), was a british parliament member who faught the institution of slavery. i read his speech from 1789 in the orations book just as i found the buttonhook. i knew when i saw it at the estate sale that the name seemed familiar. after 20 years he succedded in ending slavery. he has this massive memorial.
working on a blog/cheesecake freebee eddress. farmer will put in the sidebar when i set it up. sigh. luddite is so busy.
i have to finish reading the old word book my aunt gave me. but busy reading my EB. i wish i could post the map of arabia. i guess the current map is all because of post WW1 brit colomial remnants. has some stans i never heard of. but as soon as i fill a page of scratch paper, i will make another EB post.
i guess some people still know about wilberforce as 12 people were watching the auction. which is a very nice thought. maybe he is big in the UK yet.
remember when the MSM was all about 'Clinton fatigue'?
how come the teevee gnews have not said Bush fatigue???
say it! SAY IT!!!!
