We drove 102 miles in the early morning hours to go to an auction. There was nothing there the blacksmith really wanted for himself. But there was something I wanted.

Coverlets sold for $20 each
I wanted this Noah's ark rug but when we left, they were no where close to selling it.
This wall hanging was actually a rug too, again we left before it sold.
Well what did we get? 2 hamburgers. Not the beautiful oak hall tree. As we walked out the door, the blacksmith said "sorry I didn't get it bought for your birthday". It went for $300 above what we were willing to pay.
But Life is still good! It was a fun day.
