Put up more Christmas decorations. Load some cast bullets. Possibly some target practice. Mail out a few Christmas cards.

Absolutely nothing this weekend as it's too cold to go anywhere due to freezing temps and below zero wind chills.  x_x
Just stay home for New Year's, enjoy some hot meals, snacks, plenty of hot chocolate, and binge watch some Dr. Who episodes.

Getting ready to go to an auction. Going for two reasons. First this is an new auction company.  I want to see how they do business. There are things I look for when going to an auction held by a company I'm not familiar with. As is, Where is and How is. Meaning we don't know if it works and your buying it without any guarantee. This is the normal order of business when things are auctioned off. In all fairness the company doesn't have time to plug in and check everything. Some auctioneers will say. "We were told it works. If you take it home and it doesn't? Bring it back and we'll refund." This is also the norm. I have no problem with either. In truth I've been burned more times by buying stuff at resale shops than at auctions. What they charge. You bid $10. You pay $10 at the desk. You bid $10. You pay $10 plus tax at the desk. I like and will do business with both. Depending on state laws where you live an auction can go either way. Buyer's fee? NO. I refuse to do business with an auctioneer  company who is going to charge me extra for a winning bid. Then there is the big no no for me. I've actually had this happen.  An item went up for biding. I raised my card ( has my name and auction number on it ) and placed a bid. I was the only one who bid on that item. The auctioneer starts to add more items to this bidding. Stopped adding when he got a higher bid. I walked out of the auction. Never went to another auction held by that company.  I'm happy to say that particular auction company is now out of business. You can't treat people that way and expect them to come back.

The other reason I'm going is they have one item I'm interested in. I've already researched the item and set a price for myself. If it goes above what i'm willing to pay someone else can have it. I have seen items sell at retail or even above.  They could have gone to Walmarts. Bought the exact same item in a box with a guarantee and paid the same price. More money than wisdom. : ) Win or not either way I'm looking forward to having fun. And who knows. They can't put pictures up of every thing they have for bid. Might find something else I can't live without.

So just incase your not board yet I'l tell you another auction story. I started a bid on an item and someone else bid. We traded bids back and forth till the other person stopped. I got the item well under the price I set for myself and was happy I won. After the auction was over I went to pay for the stuff I bought. They held that particular item card back. They told me "Your only going to pay your opening bid on this item. Not the higher winning bid." Apparently they have had problems with the person bidding against me. So I got the item cheaper and learned they value me as a costumer more than what I would have paid. I left very happy with them.
It's been said that rats can gain access to your home by climbing up threw your toilet. I prefer to use the front door.

Update on the auction. Really liked the way they do business. Was easy to hear and follow what was going on at all times. Why I left early? This was a tool auction with high quality equipment  and tools being auctioned off. And a room full of people with lots more money than I had to spend. : )  Things were not going cheap enough for me to afford. Good news is I'll be back. i liked what I saw.

Went picking at Goodwill--found a few items.

Working on papercraft Skylab and Saturn Ib.

Planning to make brownies tomorrow afternoon. Also beef burritos.
