The other day the wife and I were out following those flea market signs, you know the ones that are so scarcely placed that you almost can’t find the sale. We we persisted and this treasure map let me to a yard sale where I picked up two of the best items so far this year. First thing that caught my eye was a blue seltzer bottle, it said B. Nierenberg Bottling Co Philadelphia. PA. I just had to have it for my Philadelphia room. The second item was a glass oil container. It’s from the Master mfg com. in Litchefield ILL and its lone quart bottle. Not that I’m into antique auto glass but the price was right. I got both for ten bucks! I saw similar bottles on eBay for $85 for the blue seltzer bottle and over 100 for the oil glass can wow. I might list the oil glass but I keeping the seltzer bottle. Just goes to show that if you look hard enough bargains can be found.
Wow what a great weekend to be a Philadelphia sport fan. It was a football baseball double-header both days. Sat was Temple football followed by Phillies baseball, then Sunday Eagles football followed by Phillies baseball again. My friend did notice a strange thing at the Eagles games. They didn’t re-play any plays where something bad happened to the birds. Not the hit heard round the league on Jackson, not the 3 missed field goals by Akers nothing, nada. What’ going on are the Eagles trying to censor what the fans see/saw? What do you think about this new Gold Standard of lack of re-plays?
What an awesome group of people from AC who came up to tailgate the Phillies last night. Man these people know how to have fun. Check out the slideshow and see for your self AC Gang Phillies Trip.
Do you dance in the Montreal fashion?
I guess I’m not surprised to learn the the winners of the WIP 610 tailgate party contest are getting practically nothing for winning the first week. It turns out they were offered 2 free drinks & snacks and a private room at Delilah’s den to watch the next Eagles away game. What a rip-off! The food and drinks at the tailgate party in the parking lot were better than what WIP 610 and Delilah’s offered. To make it worse they placed a video on WIP 610 where you can see how great the tailgate parties they visited were, check it out for yourself and see how great the tailgate parties they visited were WIP 610 LAMEO Contest Don’t be fooled by this contest as it runs the whole season.
