Denise found a nice bedroom set for about $75. I really like it, but wondered aloud, “should we just change our names to Ward and June?” I’ve caught Denise admiring it, when she didn’t know I was looking.
I really like these nightstands. They hold lots of books and will soon support two “funky pink and gold atomic retro lamps.” At least that’s the eBay description. The combo headboard/footlocker is handy for kleenex, more books and, perhaps, some knick-knacks or, Lord willin’, photographs of the grandchildren (hint). I think we’ll be on the hunt for an appropriate bed spread and a funky, gold metal kleenex cozy, like the one my elderly aunt and uncle down at the trailer park used to have.
Not every purchase can scratch the design itch. Our trusty refrigerator finally bit the dust. It’s probably better that way, since it had a “bladder infection.” The water started tasting funky, so I flushed it with chlorine bleach and changed the filter. No improvement. We bought the original from an appliance repair shop up by the airport, which always had sweet deals and would recycle your old appliances. Well, they are no longer there, so we had to buy a new one. Fortunately, Denise found a great deal on this “plain jane” refer, which suits our utilitarian philosophy in the kitchen.
We still deck the refrigerator with special photos, magnets and kids art, although the compositions are a bit more sophisticated nowadays. I spy Levi and Suzanne — how about you?
