HA! Lately I’ve missed the only part of working for corporate
that was fun ,,,, scheduling my vacation! Why? I don’t know. I think it’s because I hear families taking their scheduled vacations and where they’re going. Or, maybe it’s the family snapshots sent while the grandkids are on the beaches having fun. I know!!! I’m on vacation every day now that I’m retired. BUT! It’s different you know! Yes, it is too! You see I goof off so much that I don’t feel like taking a vacation. Then comes summer and every one else is on their vacation and I wonder. HUM? What am I missing? Oh, wait! I know! I’m missing the sand from the beaches. I make my own “sea glass” in a kiln. I go on my own little picnics all over the place. SO! For me ,,, I’m only missing the sand. HA! America
You see ,,, tonight while Joy and I were walking down the alley we found sand. SAND!!!! Well, actually, we found a sand blaster!!! Yes we did. HONEST! It’s brand new. Never been used! Well, that’s what the sign on it said. And I know the guy who put it in the alley. It’s new. He’s a very nice guy and sells tools at his occasional garage sales. The glass on the front of it came off. All I have to do is cement it back into place and YEP a brand new sand blaster. This will come in so handy with some of the glass work I do. Rumor has it I’m buying a used kiln (a very large kiln) at the end of this month. A big one! YAY!!! This sand blaster will enhance some of the work I can now do. WEEHAW!!!
Wanna see it??? Sure you do!
|It even came with a decent stand!|
|You can see the glass hanging out the top, the gun that shots the sand where ever I point it at and the 2 holes you put your hands into. Inside the holes are large gloves to protect your skin while the sand flies!|
|Here is one of the gloves.|
I just love finding stuff. Do you? My alleys are the best. Do you live in an area you can go find stuff? Like Joy and I do???
Fresh Paint is just 2 weeks away. EEK! I have been working on some goodies. SO! I’ll post those later this week end so you can see what’s coming!
Thanks for stopping by and have a good one! Shelley
