Yesterday we went to an awesome auction and picked up a truck full of delights. I got some neat little things for the shop AND we got to witness the auctioneer slice his finger open on a broken glass bowl, that consequently sold for five dollars — a very successful weekend so far.
I add this incident to my mental list of auction follies, which includes the time an auctioneer held up a framed sign about five feet off the ground, only to have the glass slide right out and shatter on the floor. We also had a front row seat to the demise of a milk bottle collection, in a similar fashion. It's like the time I was watching World News Tonight and saw Peter Jennings sneeze, or watching ice skating just incase they fall. Might not be nice, but it sure is entertaining.
On the way home from the auction, we stopped at Shisler's Cheese House, a nice local shop that, in addition to the cheese, sells delicious candies, pies and anything that can be pickled and put in a can. We picked up some hot pepper cheese curds and peanut butter fudge. YUM.
