Celebrating tonight with a couple of lanterns!(and a Sierra Nevada IPA) On the left is a '41 lantern that had hardly any use works like new and polished up VERY nicely.(if I NEED to sell, I'll make money) On the right....is my birthday lantern. Coleman 200 Canada - 6/70. Kinda rare, because the US factory was not producing THAT month...and it's the last month of the Canada 200's. I got a good deal on it. :)
It's been a ..... relaxing month. I thought I was going to owe a LOT of taxes that I could only put on the cards........accountant said I'd get a refund.(enough to pay for the accountant plus a little)
All the $$ I'd been saving for taxes(which wasn't quite up to half of what I was anticipating)....is now mine!(or at least a big card payment...or savings.)
A Bonus from work this month too!
Large-ish win on a keno machine tonight! Pure frosting!
After the past few years....tonight I feel rich! I have a ways to go, but the feeling of the belt loosening up a bit.....is wonderful!
Wait until you see the before and after pics of the one on the left! .....after I've done the REAL polishing. :)
I'll have to show you the before and after pics of the bathroom......when I was forced to replace the CARPET with tile....after two toilet overflows....in one day. THEN I discovered the water leak in the wall going to the shower.
I've never seen fluffy-looking snow be an actual sheet of ice......especially not at Showdown.
I was wrong......and it got worse....
On the positive side....I'm just under my skiing performance when I was 20. FYI almost bottomed Sluice Box three times today....in hard pack ice conditions....got pitched out all three times. Too fast...lost control....out of shape.''
