    Re: Bad news for Little Red

    whtbarron, i had an antique store lady that would bring me this 1960's retro funny colored patio furniture sometimes for repair. normally not worth repairing, but this stuff was collecters/ upper $ stuff according to her. she would look at scrap bin/piles. i used to save the empty wire/232 spools for her. i just throw them out aside so they could rust, cuz she liked them rusty. if she saw that splined thing u got, she would go ecstatic, and have me cut it off, so she could spray clear coat over the rust, and probably set it on a end table next to an expensive lamp on a table in her store, w/ a absorbitant price. then someone from san francisco would come along and buy it. then we'd both be eating/drinking calviar that night

    Don't drink the caviar, you'll choke.
    An optimist is usually wrong, and when the unexpected happens is unprepared. A pessimist is usually right, when wrong, is delighted, and well prepared.
