I think we have found someone to buy the Highlander. It will ease the financial end of the budget, although I wish it were more. We still have the pickup and C's subaru, both are low mileage and paid for.
I got a small wooden lamp base from ebay which is for use on my bookcase headboard. It needs a lamp package to get it wired up, and a shade, but a trip to Lowes will do for both of these. It has neat inlays and I like it. The bottom has a name (Wm. Willok) and a place (Elkhorn, Nebraska). And it is dated 1954 and was probably a shop project done by an instructor. Don't see many of these anymore, and of course the shop classes are no more, it is a pity. I always wanted to take shop, but "girls" weren't allowed to, we took Home Economics, with units on sewing, cooking, and something else which I can't remember now. It was felt that girls would be too much of a distraction in shop. Maybe they were right. I wonder if any of the guys wanted to take Home Ec? Probably not.
I am too sleepy to continue this post.
