AND THE WINNER IS.........

The winner is me of course.

With three minutes to go in the online auction, it looked like I was going to steal it. 




Then suddenly my winning bid was more than doubled.

Ha!!! Who did they think they were dealing with? Did they really think I wouldn't have covered myself?



The next bid I left popped up and I was in the lead. I waited patiently with pounding heart and sweaty palms for the next three minutes to tick by. Who knew three minutes could be so long.

Yes, it was mine.

Tomorrow I will be picking it up. I've bribed my sister, with a lunch out, to go and help me lift it into her SUV.

Oh, the winning bid was $275. Much less than I would have had to pay for a new love seat.
