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!!! 🙂

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… 😛

Linda
