Holy Ding Dong

Back in May, we sold our guitars (that we no longer wanted), for 200 smackers and last week, our phones were on sale for $80 each. When we couldn't get the phones ordered online (to save $50 in activation fees), I went to the store and asked if they would waive the fees and they said, "YES". When we were done paying for everything, they tossed in two free cases.

Holy ding dong. What a deal.

In other news, we're outside, both wearing big hoodies (burr). Tim's writing and I'm playing online. Soon to enjoy another bagel. Speaking of which, here's a text I sent earlier to my friends and family.

PS: My phone came with a pen. So. Much. Fun.

  1. I'm sorry you had to sell your guitars...I like that your phone has such good photo quality and a pen, but I wish you could get the guitars back...I'm looking for someone to teach me. I am a leftie (in more ways than one) and play a left-handed acoustic guitar. The other just did not feel right to me. Have a good week!

    1. My bad. We DIDN'T want the guitars anymore. They were sold as part of the decluttering process. I'll go back up and add that to the post.

      Happy to see them go.

      Have you looked into YouTube? They sometimes have lessons for free on there. Not sure if that's what you're looking for though.

      Might work though.

  2. Fresh from your oven to your phone to the blogosphere will have to do - but I would love to smell those. And taste them.

    1. I always ask. Learned that from my grandma. She told me, the worst they can say is no.

      Smart cookie, she was.

  12. Rare to get any deals on phones. Most "plan rate" phone prices are the fair prices. Some new iphone doesn't cost 700 for real.

  16. Oh my. I don't know what the world is coming to. Just reading another of your posts...and I realize it also doesn't have my wonderful signature remarks underneath!

    Sounds like you got a great deal on the phones. Glad you were able to make a nice $200 off the guitars! We had a couple cool days here as well, but today it's a warm 85 degrees! I have all my windows open, and until a few minutes ago had my t-shirt sleeves rolled up to my shoulders...it was a bit too hot for me! But I'm loving it! So nice to have an Indian summer!

    1. I enjoy Indian Summer. It's like one last bonus of warm but with the pretty of Autumn.

      Cold in the trailer this morning but I'm soon to turn on the oven for a batch of crackers and maybe applesauce.

      Thanks for all your comments. They were very cool to read.
