Buying Kids At Goodwill

Two new dead people today from the Goodwill Auction Site.
Each was purchased under my current average price.
That is without shipping.
The cost of gas, shipping, and wander time to discover images falls under my entertainment budget.

These were my first purchases from Goodwill. Their packing departments (two different stores) did an excellent job of ensuring my glass arrived intact.

You Haven’t Changed

While having dinner with someone I had not seen in years, she said, you haven’t changed.” She was smiling while she said it, so I think it was meant as a compliment, but the more I thought about it, the more it made me sad.

I shouldn’t be the same person I was years ago.
I should have changed.
