Yes! Overnight I won an auction of 5 Hardy Boys books for US$1.05 (not including postage of course). Given that I lost the last auction at US$50 (not including postage), I would consider this a huge bargain! Obviously the last auction was not meant to be – thanks Universe! US$79.00 was a bit much to spend.
Yesterday at Paddington Markets, I rejected several old hardcover Hardy Boys books because they were not old enough – 1972 English editions are just not acceptable any more, I want the American originals!
And soon I will be signing myself up for that tattooing programme. The one where I have that big letter “L” permanently etched into my forehead (especially after I purchase that Frank doll I’ve been coveting).
