Friday Night Auction

You just never know whats going to come out of those boxes next at Thad Wood's Auction. This is a fun Friday night. Robert was able to enjoy the sights of merchandise and comical shoppers. You see his crutches in the picture: he has had a bad run with a back injury, bronchitis, and gall bladder surgery all this summer. But, he could still get his giddyup going to check out Thad Woods.
On this particular night, a buyer could get doll faces, wigs, and hands. I sure wish I could have gotten hold of a little bit of it. Krista could use a pair of hands for her bubble lady costume (SNL reference). There was also model train equipment, dishes, crestwhite strips, a stuffed lion head, Marilyn Monroe stamps, a ventriloquist doll, and pottery. All I got was a few boxes of honey buns. I was happy to be able to give Kevin a case of honeybuns cause he was such a good brother to get rid of the second dead goat carcas in a week. (That'll be another article.) I do regret that I was too late in arriving to bid on a fiddle that was new and went for only $75. Deardre really wanted a pink of fur that sold for just 7.50 that she could use in making Santa robes.
Toni and I kept giggling about this guy who was an enthusiastic shopper. I mean, he bought all kinds of stuff. We kept analyzing just what could he want all this for. So, when he walked by on one of his trips to take his purchases to his truck, I had to ask. Turns out that he has a store. He bought so much that he didn't even realize that he left an entire set of dishes.
