Despite the inclement weather and the threat of more, there were nonetheless several stalwarts interested in selling their stuff.
There was a local history book I got 50 cents at the first location. Got it. Bolstered, I checked out the second place.
The guy was selling at 17 inch lcd monitor. He initially wanted 15 dollars for it. I didn't say anything. "But, I'm thinking I'll sell it for 10".
For an lcd monitor?
Are you kidding me?
I tested that it worked using the man's outdoor outlet. He was throwing in a keyboard, a mouse, a set of speakers, and associated cables. He was also including the milk crate the stuff was all in. For a total of 10 dollars.
I bought it all and moved on.
At other yard sales I got a webcam for a dollar. Some books for 4 dollars. A Rachel Ray dvd for 50 cents I think it was.
I made out like a bandit. Jeepers, an lcd monitor and other accoutrements for 10 dollars!
I got back to my mother's and hooked up the monitor to the netbook. It worked fine, marginally better than the one I already had here, which set me back 60 dollars 3 months ago. Sigh.
On Sunday, I'll take the monitor back with me and swap out the 15 inch monitor I have downstairs for this one. I'll sell that one, I guess, to someone who wants a smaller monitor for cheap.
Of course, Mom wanted to go shopping, and I obliged. We returned at 3:45 or so, and I immediately hopped on the lawn tractor. The grass grew a lot in a scant 2 weeks. When I'm up again, I wonder how long it will be then? I don't want to contemplate that too much.
Started transcribing the Dan Barton interview this evening. I will do my best to transcribe a piece of it every day. The upcoming 4 day weekend will help.
So will my 17 inch monitor.
