Today is Mother's Day and my mom is not feeling well so she could not come over for her mother's day brunch. But I was able to take her her present I got for her from ebay.
Here is what I got her:
It's called Neil the Frog and is Japanese made for Sears back in the early to mid '7os. Now, they are kind of a collector's item and she is collecting them.
This seemed like a really good deal because the bidding started at $30 for 4 mugs, 1 napkin holder, salt & pepper shakers, a sugar bowl and a creamer. For a long time, I was the high bidder and then at the very end someone started bidding against me. I thought "screw that,this is for my mom and I'm not letting this get away". So I increased my bid and then sat looking at the computer for the next several minutes until the other person gave up because they couldn't or wouldn't beat my bid. So I was a happy camper with my new gift purchased at $41.00.
But the funny thing is, it was my mom who was bidding against me!!!
