A Tosa resident since 1991, Christine walks the dog, cooks but avoids housework, writes and reads, and enjoys the company of friends and strangers. Her job takes her around the state, learning about people's health. A Quaker (no, they don't wear blue hats or sell oatmeal or motor oil), she has been known to stand on both sides of the political and philosophic fence at the same time, which is very uncomfortable when you think about it. She writes about pretty much whatever stops in to visit her busy mind at the moment. One reader described her as "incredibly opinionated but not judgmental." That sounds like a good thing to strive for!
I almost never spend money on anything but essentials these days. And I'm absolutely not interested in collectibles. But today, while wandering the aisles at HOBO looking for a bathroom vanity, I found something that tickled my fancy. And along with the $1.99 I spent for blue painters tape, I plunked down $14. 95 for a cookie jar.
The jar had a certificate of authenticity inside, so I thought I'd see if I could find an image on the net. And voila! E-bay had two of them for $79 and change each.
I suppose I'll fill out the certificate for #1070 of 2400 Cat in the Hat cookie jars, along with "HOBO" for Store Where Purchased. Somehow, I don't think that's what the Lyon Company had in mind, though.Then I'll probably lose it. No matter: I bought it for the amusement factor.
Until the Girl Scout cookies arrive, I may keep dog biscuits in it. But someday, I hope it will turn into Grandma's cookie jar, the one all the kids fight over after I'm gone.
