Hot Dog

I don't know a lot about skateboards so when I saw this one at the thrift store, I didn't immediately purchase it. I went home and looked it up on Ebay. One in mint condition sold for $135.06 at auction. Of course, I went back to get it. This one is in bad shape but I'm hoping someone will still buy it.

It is a longboard by Sears Roebuck and Co. I believe it is from the 60's. At one time, it said Hot Dog on it. It is wood with clay wheels. I'm pretty sure one of my cousins taught me how to skateboard on one of these in the late 70's early 80's. (yes, I'm well aware I revealed my age)

Treasure Sale Finds

One of our local churches had their annual treasure sale yesterday and today. I went yesterday with my sister. I ended up ruining my new pair of Nikes because I didn't think about the rain we got beforehand and the field it was held in was covered in mud.

It was hard to look at stuff with a 4 year old and my older child. They tend to wander. Ryker isn't too bad because he stayed by me but Robert is hearing impaired and quite fast. If you lose sight of him, it's not like you can call his name and he will come back to you. Anyways, I managed to miss a vintage Fisher Price circus train with animals and people. My sister spotted it and said "Don't you want this?" Of course I did. I have been collecting the play sets for Ryker even though some can sell for good money on Ebay. When he no longer has interest in them, I will probably sell them.

Here are some things I bought.







When I was paying for the penguin, some small boy came up to the table and said "I want the penguin" His dad said "No. Let's look for something else." To which the boy said again "I want the penguin." I was about to give it to him but the dad had already dragged him away.

I didn't get to really look at housewares because it was cold and I was afraid my boys would break something and I was ready to go. I don't do well with big crowds and I was done by then. We did go to 3 garage sales nearby but I only found one thing. I have never seen this toy before but some sellers are trying to get over $100 for their NIB one. It's called Baby Moppets Secret Nursery. The play set is hidden by the cloth for the bassinet. The seller showed me how it went together. She said she is 36 and it was hers from her childhood.





All these items are available in my Ebay store.

A few days before I found another Henry dog. This is the 3rd one I found at that particular store.

and at another store I found a vintage child's suitcase. I think these are so cute. I would keep it for my son but he doesn't go on sleepovers.

Kicking Facebook To The Curb (Almost)

Like most people, I spend too much time on Facebook. I was neglecting my own life in favor of people I haven't even meet. I could spend hours reading status updates, postings in groups, liking pages etc. Not only was I wasting my time, it was affecting my mental health as well. I spent days crying because I wasn't invited to a going away party for a coworker I hadn't seen in years. Jealousy would overcome me. You went to Outback again this week? Hmmm, I can barely afford McDonald's. Oh those vacay photos of you at Disneyland. How thoughtful of you to share when I couldn't take my kids to the county fair. You get the point. I know I have plenty to be thankful for, but Facebook was not helping.

I didn't want to remove my profile completely, so I am making it a little harder to access the page. I deleted the app from my kindle and removed the bookmark from my computer. If I have to type the address in, I might be more inclined to stay off of it.  I also did some friend clean up. If you can't take the time to like or comment on my posts, why are we friends? I removed some groups as well. Wasting time reading about other people's problems with Ebay wasn't helping me at all. I barely posted in those groups and when I did, I would only get one or two responses.

I always tease my sister about her not having a Facebook page but maybe she has the right idea. Guess I will see how long I can stay off it. Hopefully, I don't replace it with something else.

Do you have a Facebook page? Are you spending way too much time there?
