aren't there typically four people you interview for this section?

My fleas have been showing a great deal of interest in my laptop so maybe a teeny tiny computer. I draw the line at weapons though. Last thing I need is flea wars in my scalp. Or any place else for that matter.

Is there such a thing as a crab market?

I'd like to find one of them Mayan calendars. Before it's too late.

Also, some of those blue haired trolls. For my computer desk. I already have names picked out for them. But no rocks. Definitely no rocks.

A 1962 Mercury Comet model car kit. Seems Knology's online bill pay is in the middle of an upgrade. Good timing, I'd say. Right when all the payments are due...

My kiddos are doing May baskets...... I'm making their dad go with them. Surprisingly he's not as excited about it as the kids. :-)

Gnomes and old, unrestored trunks.

Everytime I wander thru a flea market / junk store, I've got an eye out for a Springfield Randall.

snap_, A friend turned down $1200 for his Springfield Randall. I've seen 'em advertised for $1500

I'm looking for one of those freeze-dried armadillos from Mexico. Also a jackalope.

All. Time. Favorite! At the truckline I worked for in KC I would key the mike on my company 2-way Motorola every time this played on the truck radio. From the "Yard" we could see the dock workers dancing and playing air guitar, and when it finished they would clap and cheer! Got called on the carpet twice for it but denied, denied, denied . . .

Roe, I'm still hoping that some little hole-in-the-wall junk store has a shelf of Randalls for $19.99 apiece......

Right now the specific things I'm looking for are tea cup and sauce sets, anything I can utilize in my garden, and a skeleton key (preferably gold) for my daughter...... she thinks they're magical.
