These HP printers are not expensive, except it took four hours of driving around Tucson to find one. They actually run around $100. It's the ink that makes them the big bucks. $36 for two tiny cartridges that will last about three weeks. At least I'm back in business.
It helped (however slightly) that at the local poker game last week, I actually won $3.00 and I didn't lose my $5 buy-in ... that makes an $8 win in my book!! I'm rich!! Maybe that will help pay for the cover I need for this beautiful oak poker table the previous owners left here.
I checked on glass ... $150. I called Tucson Table Pads which resides in Indianapolis Indiana (????) who gave me a price of $150 also. Whoa Nelly ... that's too high. So Elaine (we are on a first name basis now) said she had a promotion she could offer for a total of $129. Gee Elaine, how come you didn't offer that first? I declined. There just has to be something to cover the top so I can use it for a dining room table.
Just turn the top over you say? Good idea, but it then becomes a snooker table, still not good for dining.
Neighbor Pat was instantly sold on this baby who's so fast I couldn't even get a good picture. This tiny little ball of fluff LOVES people. We had a nice visit while I sat on the floor and got lots of puppy love.
He's a cross between a Yorkie and something cute as a button. His name is J J.
Patty knows all about salesmanship. Snoopy kitty talked them into taking her home from a shelter in Idaho a few years ago. Sweetest kitty ever who is currently locked in the bedroom/bathroom jail while the floors are done. I stopped by yesterday to get my kitty fix and see about laminate for my two extra bedrooms.
In between pruning the rose bushes outside and trying to get rid of really old carpet, I stitched together a few more pieces for this quilt. Isn't this just amazingly colorful? So easy to sew together! This is the birthday discount fabric Patty led me right to last week. I LOVE IT!!!!
There's two big furniture auctions today, but Nancy is being a good girl and going to visit a really old Mission down south towards the Mexican border. It's going to be a hike ... they said bring food and water. Hopefully my shoulder will outlast the heavy camera. Pictures tomorrow.
