eBay is Dangerous but Fun!!

Hi,

 

Yesterday was dark, wet, dreary, today is light, sun is out, no rain, and, I have found an item on eBay that made my blood flowing and it is so hard to sit tight and just wait for it!

At first I was a little afraid as it was another US-only item, but, I wrote seller and he was so kind and said he would be willing to ship to me, and that made me so Happy!!! πŸ™‚

It will cost me a fortune, but I think it should be worth it! A little bit hesitation as it looks like a photo taken from either a moving train or a Trolley, so the front is blurry, and the structure in the back is possible also slightly affected – hopefully not.

The worse part it is like 6 days and 12 hours to wait, and it ends around 0300 at night my time… That is the bad parts, and of course, the fighting for it…

But, other than that, I am so excited as it might help gain a better understanding of one of several thousands of structures in the Cripple Creek Mining District back in the days – and one which is along the Midland Terminal so it is a needed structure to make a model of for my project and I just NEED this image!!

This is what I am talking about, please, everyone, stay away from it, please… πŸ˜›

Still alive, still thinking and feeling, still me. LOL

Hi,
I’m hopeless in keeping up to date all my projects, I have wanted to update my website all the time since I sort of crashed it late last year but I just got the parts restored and not my access to it really so I have no way to update it per say.

That is, I can make and create new pages, just not access it with the program I used to use… FTP is only access now a days, and it is too much for to keep site working so I let it slide…

Was working on a replacement, but things got in the way, life for instance, and then my Cripple Creek Research kicked in and lured me away full-time.

I have a lot of thoughts in my mind, few is of use to share with others… Overall I say life is kinda good at the moment, not great, but not filled with all bad stuff either. There are plenty of that, but it has not dragged me down to much.

This summer been wet so far, awful in many ways, but I found and have used and learned quite some stuff and even found location of an old photo I got of eBay last year – of a mine called Cove Boy – that was real cool and great!!! πŸ™‚

I try to keep up to date with my Internet friends, but even that tends to be a mountain railroad ride – ups and downs! 😐
But, I at least try

After all, my name starts with LIT and I like to look at is meaning “Life Is Trying” and that is how I try to live, do my best in all I do!

Even feeling bad… LOL

Last was sort of a joke. πŸ™‚

Lately I been wondering if the world is really a good place to be, if I can be of use for anything out there, but I’ve yet to figure that one out so I am still searching for an answer on that one.

I realize I am sort of unique in my way of thinking and combining thoughts and such, and I been wondering if that is something I could use to maybe help my income a little, but then cold hard facts – or my own bad thinking (have not figured that one out yet) – hit me in the face and I realize, I am just one of many wanna bees…

Then again, I am at least unique, like we all are…

LOL

But, I am working on me, figuring me out is a full days job in it self, do we all have it that way?

I guess we do, but how many thinks about it, and try to learn from them self?

Either way, this was just a bunch of rambling words, I was supposed to write an email to a friend, and somehow I ended up in here instead. πŸ˜›

Life’s funny sometimes, and I love to smile, that is easy to know as it is so easy to make me smile!

Take care who ever reads this!

Linda
