Those Chilean Miners!!

By now you all have seen a story or two about those Chilean Miners that were rescued recently…

image It was quite a story. But when I found this on Youtube……I laughed so hard that I had to play it 3 and then 4 times…what a riot this guy is. What a wonderful life…..he is stuck down in those mines for all those weeks….miles beneath the earth…..not knowing his fate or the fate of his fellow miners…..and then he ends up on the Letterman show doing this……    

CHILEAN MINER

Only in America!!……….What a riot!!

 

Oh by the way……my marbles I put on Ebay for my friend did really well!! We watched them all week and they seemed to be hanging around at $17.00….then they jumped up to about 48.00 and stayed there until the last 45 minutes of the auction. Guess what they sold for?? I was completely shocked and thrilled…..they ended up selling for……….ready?????…………………..

$166.66 …….can you believe it?? I am not a fan of that number, but we did good! Our friend was pleased, and now he wants us to put on two more lots for him. I have been getting together another auction of my things to start hopefully sometime this week. Our carpenter is back and we had two good days of working on the beam…it’s awesome! His shoulder is better. He did such a great job this week, I made him an apple crumb pie! Of course both my husband and I totally forgot his wife and two kids are allergic to flour, wheat and dairy!! Poor guy had to eat the whole pie himself!! Do I hear a big AWE???? He loved it.This week is a big push for us to get our beam done, dining room painted, baseboards in dining room put down…etc…..and emptying out dining room, for the floor guy, who is coming on the 15th, to sand. It’s not over yet! I am taking pictures and will share when the whole thing is done! Hope all is well with all of you?! Smile

Great price on those marbles. Whew, you have so much going on at your house....it would make me nervous. Hope you are holding up OK. I am in the process of cleaning my basement. Big job.....it looked like an episode of "HORDING", but it's coming along quite nice! Loved the video.
hugs, Kathleen

I just spent 2 whole days at the doctors and I still haven't had chemo! Can you believe it? One thing after another.
Great sale on the marbles!
