I have been polishing up some submissions this afternoon. That's because I earned a reprieve from sandwich-making.
The Pony is lolling about his grandma's house, soaking up high-speed internet. Hick and Genius took off for a bout of Goodwill shopping. Genius has the bargain-hunting fever, because last night Hick bought him a camera and three lenses at the auction for twenty dollars. He has several cameras of his own, of much higher quality. But he likes taking things apart to see how they work, fixing them if they're broken, and selling them on eBay. He's quite the entrepreneur.
Hick bought a puzzle. I'm thinking it must have been a Coca Cola puzzle, because it was something he collects. I don't really know, because I have a tendency to tune out much of what spouts from Hick's mouth. Not maliciously, of course. There are only so many stories I can hear about the auction or Goodwill. I did gather that Hick drove his puzzle down to his creek-side cabin in his Gator, and settled in for a rainy afternoon of puzzle-working. When he returned to the house for supper, he reported that three pieces of the puzzle were missing.
At least he didn't bring home any auction meat.
