¡Ay mama mia, mi gente..tenemos maracas en la cabeza!   Rosetta or Loretta…mamma mia or ay mama?  Fa lo stesso, it’s six of one, half-a-dozen of another. What would Tia Roseletta say about this? I’m sure she would give our dear and lovable Joe a chancletazo en la jeta or push him into the bathtub Madonna.  Ti piace?

1.  WANTED: The ABC’s of Reloading-I want to start reloading my own ammo and would love to have this book.Thanks

2. OFFER: Brown Betty hair color- brown betty – from the box: “color for the hair down there” demi-permanent color. new in box.
ive never evern seen this before, someone gave it to me as a joke, before i threw it out i wanted to check to see if anyone would like it. easy porch pick-up

3. OFFER: bunch of silver gold costume earrings-Don’t wear these anymore. Used to have a big ear complex but accepted the reality – and grew hair. picture at http://bit.ly/9t0RoK email availability TO PICK UP ALL in west 60s on wednesday or thursday after 8pm. Flaking annoys me.

4. WANTED: Scrap Metal or wood-I need scrap metal or wood to create some shelving in an old chicken coop I bought and plan to place on my wall. I know it’s a strange project, but I’m hoping it turns out well. Condition doesn’t matter, however, length and width do. I need pieces at least 35″ long and 7″ wide. Thanks so much.

5. OFFER: large plastic wall leopard-This item is a long vintage plastic 3D leopard or other wild cat that hangs on the wall. It reminds me of the old tiger that used to hang in Sunoco stations (I think.) It is four feet long and is light brown and cream colored with dark spots, and it is molded in a running position with its mouth open like it’s chasing a gazelle or something. 🙂 I tried eBaying it thinking someone would love it but no one was interested. I’d say it’s from the 1950s or 1960s. Great for a basement bar, old fashioned garage or some other funky decor. I can send pix if you’d like to see it before committing.

First come first served, in order of email responses. Put your phone number in your email or I won’t reply because I do not have time to email fifty people back and forth. I’ll call the person in the first email and if they don’t pick it up I’ll call the second, etc. If it’s already taken I simply won’t respond so if you don’t hear from me that’s what that means. Hope someone wants this funky old cat!

Thanks for freecycling!

Stop Your Sobbing

Image by paparatti

Don’t despair, freakers.  We haven’t abandoned you.  I admit it was terribly mean to not tell you we were leaving you for a while but when you have a boo-boo, you just gotta rip the Band-Aid right off, catch you unawares so it doesn’t hurt too much. Are we the boo-boo or the Band-Aid?  Perhaps we are neither, perhaps we are the Neosporin.  Forget this analogy…it is clearly going nowhere.   We are grabbing the last rays of sunshine in a desperate attempt to insure some semblance of a vacation.  We will be up and running on Tuesday, the 7th.
