Waist Deep in Toys!

I'm trying to inventory as fast as I can! So many awesome toys and children's items from the collection we just purchased. I have a grand idea for display at the shop and can't wait to share it! It's going to take some time, but the wait will be worth it! Keep checking.!!!!

Lots of work to do! Inventory is not a fun job! After that tedious task, then the fun begins. Until next time,

Toy--Toys--Toys--A Huge Collection

Well, this is a sampling of the toy collection we picked up today. What a day, if there are 100 toys....there are 1,000. It will take a bit of time to inventory it all. What a treasure! Shelf after shelf after shelf.

Of course nothing goes smooth for me. We were across the river about 30 minutes from home, got loaded up, and my car wouldn't start. I mean it was dead. No notice. Just dead. So.....we had to have it towed home. Just what I didn't want to spend money on. But no choice. Luckily, Gary was there in his truck so at least I had a ride. I don't know if you have ever seen an SUV being loaded up to towing. I have a Yukon XL and it was full. Normally 4 wheel drives have to be put on a flat bed and it is turned half way up to load. I could see all of this stuff going everywhere. That is about the only lucky thing for me, this ride of mine could handle normal towing, so the stuff was safe. We thought we would have to unload it so we could leave the car over the long weekend. As luck would have it, it was just the battery. Deader that a doornail. We had tried to jump it and it didn't work so we thought it might be the starter or something. All is well now, and all of this stuff is now in my living room. I truly do think I live in a warehouse! What a day. But it ended up being a good day!
Until next time,
