Greetings Me Droogs N Droogettes!
After the Gray Man sale, I was able to get Wifey’s anniversary present out of layaway without resorting to insane credit card abuse. $400 wasn’t too bad, not for what she wanted. And man, she’s a Happy Happy Girl.
A solid mahogany, non-veneered 1910 Rice-Carver (? no fucking clue Aye?) style Vanity
She is, absolutely stoked
First thing however, is to get it properly ‘loaded’
Putting Ye Olde Vest Pocket FN1906 Browning .25 ‘Nightstand’ Weapon in the topmost drawer that she can reach in the middle of the night… seems really apropos to have a handgun that’s from the same timeframe +/- 4 years as the go-to nightstand weapon.
Of course that’s quite literally the ‘last ditch weapon of last resort’ as a .25 will only irritate a home invader. But, in this case, it’s a perfect fit/match for the whole thing.
We found the vanity in a GIANT antique store that Spawn told us aboot.4 acres of Antique Mall
OMFG soooooo much stuff.
And Wifey found this thing on our first ten minutes in the store, at which point she slapped a Cee-note on the table and put it on layaway. I surprised her today by paying it off after Gray Man bought the long arm which made me momentarily solvent.
Yeah… that lasted aboot 24 hours Aye?
Bills are paid, and I’m happy and Wifey is thrilled.
Can’t argue with that.
Kills me too. Serbian War Criminal was drafted into using his MONSTER F250 DeathFord to go git it. He’s got a 32 foot R.V. that he needs to haul around so he’s got the giant assed P/U for the towing, and the Vanity fit jes’ fine.
Man, this’sa great weekend
Only possibly ‘racially charged’ aspect I can put out… the Vanity was handmade in 1910… by Irish Immigrants… Not one piece of diversity had a hand in it’s epic creation. Made by whypeepoo, for whypeepo… fuck all the rest
ALSO QUICK ADDENDUM: I’m offishully old. I just got word that Spawn #1 is engaged to Shorty. News to follow!
