What do these things have in common you might be wondering.
One is for sale, one is new, some are not wanted.
Can you figure out which is which?
Yes, the (deck ) boat is for 4 sale – and it’s on eBay. This is the first time I’ve listed anything that couldn’t fit into a box and be mailed – this sale is for pick-up only. As of tonight it’s gotten 399 views with 15 watchers, auction ends in 4 days.
Grenville bought this boat a couple of years with hopes of exploring some of the marshland areas. Last year, it needed an engine overhaul; this year it went unused with other projects going on. We’re hoping someone will give it a good home – someplace other than our back yard.
Something new is a stove, which we bought today. The one that was in the Frog & PenguINN when we bought this house in 2003 finally gave out this week. You know something’s not quite right when it’s been 20 minutes and the oven isn’t even warm yet. And, that casserole that’s all ready to go won’t be getting cooked anytime soon. Luckily, a neighbor lent us her oven. Thanks, Mary.
Grenville and I both enjoy cooking, cleanup not so much. WOW this is a self-cleaning model with a broiler in the oven, not on the bottom. Now if it was also a self-cooking model too.
We’re not shy to admit that we do have brand loyalty and repeat buy from companies whose products have worked well for us without costly repairs – for major appliances, that’s Maytag – fridge, washer/dryer, and now stove. Here’s the best part of our new stove:
That leaves the not wanted items as – catalogs! They DO multiple quickly. Just order one item and you’ll get catalogs from not only that company but similar companies too.
How do you get off these catalog distribution list?
Do you call the companies?
We call and are usually told we could get a couple more as mailings are done in advance. But, we’ll keep recycling them until they stop coming. Hopefully, soon.
