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.
How about a piece of plywood and a table cloth can be round pr square no matter.ReplyDelete
Nice kitty and doggie fixes for the day as well.
I'm working on that table top option. So far it means I have to buy a jig saw to cut it out since lumber companies won't cut circles and I can't find any wide enough. I'm working on it though!! Its got to be cheaper than a dining room table!Delete
I'm sure you'll find some nice way to cover your table top. No doubt you'll figure it out.ReplyDelete
Cutie pie Yorkie!
Love the colours in your quilt. Looks like a neat crafting hobby. Hey! obsolescence?? Now that was a big word I needed to look up! show off! :)
Quilting is a fun hobby I can even take on the road with my mini sewing machine. Planned obsolescence ... make it so it will fall apart in a couple years and you have to buy another one!!Delete
Google or eBay,,,, table top gaming table cover 20 to 50 bucksReplyDelete
Or you can Just make a round flip it over quilt For the tabletop
A quilt was my first thought, but it won't keep glasses from falling into the holes and making a mess. Gaming table cover ... now I can work with that one! Thank you!!!Delete
HomeDepot has round table tops, just don't know if they have a size that would work, 42" for $55, 36" for $40....worth going to their website and looking for (I typed in: Round Table Top)ReplyDelete
We think alike Dave .. that was my first stop. Biggest is 42", my table is 47". I'm even thinking just real heavy cardboard with a tablecloth.Delete
