AT THE ON-LINE AUCTION I WON..................
a bunch of crap I don't need, but couldn't live without
Our local auction house started on-line only auctions about 6 months ago. I don't know if I like that better than live auctions. I do enjoy sitting at one all day, listening the the auctioneer and marveling at what people will pay for certain items. It works like ebay, where you can set a max bid and if you get outbid they send you an email. I won 5 lots, but bid on 15 or so. I set my limit and unless I really want something, don't go over it. They also have a on site preview day, which I like, because I like to touch everything. This auction was at a house about an hour from where I live, when we went to the office to pay for my winnings, the woman who works there told us she was going to the auction site that afternoon and she would bring everything back with her so we wouldn't have to go after work, because "I'm nice". Hell yeah, thank you! See, it pays to be nice.
Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend

SAVING THE 70's, ONE PIECE AT A TIME
This was in the pocket of one of the sportcoats. $15.00 for a tank of gas on Jan. 11. 1978!
We went to an auction preview today for an on-line auction. Put bids on all kinds of things. I have my limits, and won't know what I won until Tuesday evening. Send me some luck!
I have to go in extra hours this week at work, it's getting to the crazy time. The costumes look awesome and, of course, I'll be posting some photos when that happens.

A WEDDING, A DANCE, A HOMECOMING AND A BABY
This past month was a pretty busy one for my family. First off, about 4 weeks ago, my niece Kay married her sweetheart Danny. It was in Reno, which is about 2,500 miles from here. I couldn't take 5 days off from work, but the Doctor went. To bad he doesn't like to take photos.
The reason I couldn't go was the dance concert was breathing down our necks. I get down time, but it's sometimes not in the right space. Here's a new photo of the dance called Attic Antics
The Homecoming football game and parade was the same weekend as the dance concert. Seeing as The Doctor is now a big shot he got to be in the parade
And our newest family member made her appearance on Friday. Say "Hello" to Annadella Lila Morris!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Wonder how exciting the next month will be?

".........$20 IN MY POCKET"
On Friday, before work, I walked over to the Salvation Army and got 8 items for under $20. Here's the receipt to prove it.
Sometimes I think people don't believe me when I tell them what I pay for some of the dresses I wear. My new dress cost $2.99. Here's want else I got.....
The 8th item is a pirate shirt from International Male which is hanging with the costumes for the next show. It's the "puffy shirt" from that Seinfeld episode ( I've never seen that episode, but someone told me about it)
Until next time........

THE DYING SWAN.
Here's an old postcard of Anna Pavola in The Dying Swan costume. The dance was her trade make piece.
The rest of the pieces were from old, beat up costumes. We recycle like crazy.
the first idea on the dress form. We decided to shorten the over fabric so some of the tutu shows.
Another view. Danced by Haley Sheppard. Photo by: Eric Brandt Neilsen, who also choreographed the piece, from Fokine's original work
