Eight Dolla...No Holla......

I know many of you have heard this story before, so please
bear with me. I'm tying it into something....
About 30 years ago I was at a yard sale and spotted a box with
some dishes in it. The box was marked $1.00 !! I picked up one
saucer and on the bottom it said Meakin England. I about SHIT!
The person in charge said that it was a Buck for the whole box!
I gave her the Dollar, and brought the box home. And promptly
forgot about it in my basement for maybe...20 YEARS!
While watching the Antiques Road Show, I suddenly remembered the
box in the basement. Since I didn't have Google 30 years ago, I
really had no idea of their worth. Well thanks to the marks at the
bottom of Each Dish, it was easy to look up. This is a COMPLETE
6 piece setting of Dinner Plates, Salad Plate, Cup/Saucer, Soup Bowl,
Sugar Dish/Creamer, and a Platter. The replacement value direct
from Meakin, is about $1200.00...HA! All for a BUCK!

Zoom to 3 Weeks ago....
While at a Antique Flea Market, I saw this brightly colored
platter, on the back it said Alfred Meakin England, and it was
marked at EIGHT BUCKS!! I've tried and tried to identify the pattern,
but I have not found the exact one yet. Can anyone out there in
Blogland help a Brother out? Regardless of the value, I Love It, It's
very Easter and Springlike, and I'm happy with the price.
Did I pay too much? Did I get a good deal? Please help the G-Man
with his mystery. Thank You .....Galen

Friday Flash 55.....

She sat all alone, swilling down the
wine like Perrier....With Little Effect!!
Carlos thought...Yeah, this'll be easy.
Smoothly sliding onto the adjoining barstool,
Carlos asked..."Hi, can I buy you a drink?"
Lyssa's eyes stopped gazing at her glass to meet his.
Chateau Margaux...82'!
'Mister...You OK?'

Maybe Carlos should hit on chicks that drink Gallo Tawny Port?
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55

So from the most gracious host from coast to coast...
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!!

(FYI...An 82 Margaux's estimated value is $8000. to $11,ooo.)

Mr. Knowitall Asks....


Ya know, sometimes being Mr. Knowitall is a real
challenge. Some weeks I need some help on the more
philosophical dilemmas. This is one of those weeks!!
Here's a few question that I would like some feed-back on.

* Is it EVER OK for 2 straight men to ride on a Motorcycle?

* Should you tell a total stranger that their zipper is open?

* In Court, do Athiests have to swear on the Bible? Hindu's?

* Is it OK to use room freshener as a Cologne?

* Do you tell people that they have a booger hanging?

* In crowded movie theaters, which armrest is yours?

* Do you need a Silencer to shoot a Mime?

* Speed of Light, Speed of Sound. Is there a Speed of Smell?

* Can FAT people go Skinny-Dipping?

* Do Chinese people get Tattoo's of English Writing that they know
NOTHING about but it seems Trendy?

* If a Hermaphrodite goes missing, should you put the "Have you
seen this person" picture on a carton of Half & Half?

Mr. Knowitall grows weary from all this inquiring.
(Plus I have a Home-Made Pizza in the oven)

Friday Flash 55.....

Flora Giganticus was the best gardener in Rome.
The Spring of 43 AD was perfect for Strawberries.
One plant had a berry larger than a Pumpkin!
This crimson giant attracted many admirers. And soon
the Emperor wanted it for himself. When the Centurians
arrived they shouted..."We've come to seize your berry,
NOT to praise it!"

Thank you, Thank you very much....
Beware The Ides of March!!

Friday Flash 55.....

Feedback Please....

A study guide for the ULTRA-Lazy,
Biff's Notes on Cliff's Notes!
EXAMPLE: Thomas Hardy's Mayor Of Casterbridge.
A drunk sells his wife and daughter to a sailor
for Five Guineas. Years later they remarry.
He is the Mayor and a prosperous merchant. But deceit
and jealousy ruin Everything...He dies alone!

Wadda'ya think?

Hey, who needs to know about how Lies and Guilt causes
overpowering turmoil, or Hardy's omnipresent theme of
Pessimistic Fatalism?
If you or anyone you know has written a Friday Flash 55
Please come tell The G-Man
I will visit, read, enjoy, comment....Then BOOK!!
So from the most Pessimistic host from coast to coast
Have a Kick Ass Week-End!!!

(Of course I read the FULL novel, I don't know where these
old Cliff's Notes came from. Would someone really keep this
crap laying around for 45 years??)

Thursday Portrait.....

Uh Oh, Ocho Cinco's in the news again!
While at a Charity event this week end, a Lion was
marking his territory, and pissed all over poor Chad!!
For all of you Non sport fans....
There is a famous Football player that plays for
New England who's name USED to be Chad Johnson.
When he played for Cincinatti he legally changed his last
name to correspond to his number...85, or Ocho Cinco.
What a Great Idea!!
For the longest time I've wanted an Exotic Moniker.
Like Gerard Soixante-Neuf, or Taylor Caldwell!
But in light of my Friday Thing, how about...
Vendredi Cinquante-Cinq!!??
See You Jeudi, Huit Heures Tapantes...:-)

TMI Tuesday....

Those of you that do not live in the USA, are so very fortunate
that you don't have this pompous, fat-ass, cigar-chomping, right
wing bigot Rush Limbaugh, contaminating your airwaves and headlines.
He almost makes me ashamed to be an American white male!
Last week he ridiculed a female college student Sandra Fluke for
speaking before Congress and advocating Gov't. sponsored Birth
Control for unwed students. He called her a 'Slut', and that she
should make a sex tape and post it for all to see.....Nice!
The blonde in the last pic is his wife. She is 17 years younger than
Rush, and I'm quite sure that she didn't marry him for his impish
grin, schoolboy charm, and Minty Fresh breath! Maybe he has a way
with words? Read some of Rush Limbaugh's more "Charming" quotes...

"Have you ever noticed how all composite photo's of wanted criminals
resemble Jesse Jackson"?

"The NAACP should have Riot Rehearsals. They should get a liquor store
and practice robbing it".

[To an African-American caller] "Take that bone out of your nose, and
call me back".

"You know who deserves a posthumous Medal of Honor? James Earl Ray!
(The convicted killer of Martin Luthor King)
We miss you Jimmy....Godspeed"!

"Columbus saved the Indians from themselves"!

He calls President Obama a 'Halfrican-American'!

Oh yeah....Charming! If that Bimbo fucks that walrus for ANY
reason other than his fat paycheck, she has to be a daughter
of a Klansman!
All this Bigotry makes Mr. Knowitall grow weary....Adieu!
