Vintage 1950's Shawnee pottery planter, oriental boy with bamboo pot, USA 701 planter

After working at my grounds keeping job I walked down to the thrift store and found this piece. I was guessing it was Shawnee or mccoy. Wasn't sure.

Once I got home and did some searches I saw that it is Shawnee.

It is in great condition, too. No chips, cracks and not even any crazing.

I got it listed tonight

It was an ok day. Made some small sales. I did get a good number of orders packed & shipped. I did spend more money on tea cups though. I shouldn't have. I should be spending my money on home projects and furniture projects. I have enough tea cups, too.

I am off to bed.

A Guy in Goodwill Showed me an ELVIS dvd Today

So at the end of my grounds keeping job I got a little upset. Then I walked down to the supermarket and then to the thrift store.

I had gone to the register and paid for my things. I then wanted to go look some more and just as I turned from the register an old black guy told me about the video he found. It was Elvis Blue Hawaii and he was happy that it was never opened. And he told me some times you get lucky in the dvd section and find ones like that.

That probably meant something. But I don't care. That does not change alot of things.

Just gotta set my objectives and stick to them for ONCE.

My Bike Got Stolen Today

I had it in my side yard with a combination chain lock on the back tire.

I came home tonight and it was gone.

Makes me mad.

I bet the neighbor guy did it.

The other night I came out at 3am and it was up by the front of my gate like someone had tried to take it and realized there was a lock on the back tire. And the neighbor guy was out on his front steps talking. He should have seen someone...unless it was him.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: Net Neutrality (HBO)

2,874 Sales and 3,874 Admirers in My Vintage Etsy Shop!

Even with record low Etsy search views since the beginning of june I have been lucky to make regular sales and have an active shop, with many admirers added each day.

I am lucky, I guess I could say, in that I have orders to pack and ship!

I Dreamt of a Girl Who has been Waiting to Marry Me???

In my dream there was this blonde girl in front of me.

And a voice said something like, "she has been waiting for you to marry you"???

Or something like that.

I felt like I knew the girl. But I could not recognize here.

I was guessing it might be MBP from 1st grade, grade school and high school?

I am not sure. Not sure if it looked like her or not.

Or even if the dream was a message.

If it was a message, so what.

I will never get married. Oh well.

"What's up, cool guy."

Tonight I rode my bike down to the local grocery store to get some unsweetened iced tea for work tomorrow.

As I was going through the register the young dude bagging said, "What's up, cool guy.".
I didn't think he was talking to me at first. Then I said, "What's up. How you doin'".

He said, "You're the coolest guy to come in here tonight.". lol.

I laughed.

I must have kinda given him a mean look at first because as I walked away I heard him say something to the cashier about how I looked at him. Oh well.

It started as a compliment and I mighta messed it up a little by given the guy a mean look. oh well.
