My Fisher Price Little People came today. I have been shopping for some ever since grandson Noah was here and complained for the second visit that we didn't have any. Buster ate ours when he was a puppy and the grandkids have limped along on two not-too-badly chewed ones. But it upsets Noah. I did the shop-local thing and couldn't find any, so shopped online and did no better, so went to eBay as a last resort. I saw a number of attractive auctions but the shipping and handling was between $15-$20 dollars. I know when I'm being had. Then I found this lady. I won the auction for $5.50 and paid $7.00 for shipping. She is now a favorite vendor with me!
Alexia left this behind from her last visit. As you can see, she was doing her best to play, but you really need people. She cobbled together some Lego pieces to fill in. I'm feeling like a totally remiss grandma.
It has also been hard for her that her fluffy bunny has no right eye. Buster also ate that. She put a Logo wheel in his eye hole last visit and so I decided to find something to fill the space.
I couldn't find a craft eye to sew on so I chose a star button instead. I figure the kids see stranger body pieces with cartoon Animae, so a star should be just the ticket.
I finished a bomb this week and have the perfect place to install it, but it's pouring rain and has been pouring all day, with the forecast continuing through tomorrow. I had planned to install it in the morning but now am hoping for better conditions Saturday morning.
My computer has been dragging downwards for the last week or two - not sure as it just got slowly worse. Ian and I spent hours on it and today spent time on the internet looking up key words. The culprit seems to have been a toolbar that installed in a browser update. I appear to have dodged serious malware, but will be on the alert for future browser "improvements." No thanks. I'm trying to cut down.
