Last April I wondered in to the Salvation Army thrift store near my house. I love the SA thrift store and I honestly think I get better deals there as a posed to Good Will. It doesn’t keep me out of Goodwill, God forbid. I just go to SA a lot more often. Anyway, I walk in and I see it. The Silver Tuna. The one. My greatest thrift store find to date! My eyes glazed over.
When my vision cleared I found the price tag and my heart sank: $200. Poop! I already had a perfectly good solid oak dining table and 6 chairs. I had had it for 23 years & it showed. It would be stupid for me to buy this. So I left without it . . . And went home to sulk. All I could think about was those legs!!!!! So, my husband finally asked me what was on my mind and I just SPEWED. And I continued to spew & agonize for over a week. To the point that my husband had had it with me. Now, let me just say that Big Daddy Mac is a good guy. He puts up with, better yet he encourages all my hair brained ideas AND fixes all the stuff I break. So when he says he has had enough, I listen. “Go. Get. It”. He said. And still I could not.
