The end of a long week and some great surprises. And not just these little finds, the one below only $3.
But what was really wonderful was all the handwritten notes in the requests, from a couple of people who comment that I know, and others that may or may not be bloggers, perhaps just readers.
But there was another surprise, in a box, from a blog name I recognize. It was not a request for a book, just simply a little gift, to brighten my world found at a thrift shop and mailed off to me. He lapped up the coins, but needed a little coaxing. Inside, a planetary gearbox was found to have slipped off a shaft. That was fixed and Whoa Nellie - that Barkly the Banker can eat some coins!
Barkly the Banker.
(this is from youtube, as my own movie efforts didn't turn out so well).
You put coins in his dish and he gobbles them up as they disappear into the bank below..
It still is making me laugh. Thank you U.!
