Mr. Cat Comes Through
« on: July 13, 2019, 05:06:05 PM »
I have a black cat at work that I've fed since he was tiny.  Usually when I feed him, I get a bit of good luck.  I fed him this week, and today I went to the thrift store and passed by the record rack to find a Glenn Miller Limited Edition Volume 2 RCA LPT-6701 5 disc bound record set.  I picked it up quickly and found a Glenn Miller Second Pressing RCA LPT-6700 5 disc bound record set.  The records appear to be in great shape.  All the other single records had prices but these had pink stickers on them.  The manager had to look up the price on them and I thought they were going to hang it on me.  He came back and said $1.81 apiece.  These are a once or twice in a lifetime find at these prices.

Wow...  I have a lady that works our SA every Saturday and marks everything down.  You wouldn't believe the clothes I've bought over the years.  People at work think I'm independently wealthy because I wear name-brand used pants and shirts...  when I tell them, they're dumbfounded.  Last week I got a custom made Brooks Brothers navy flannel suit for $7...  I can wear it once and redonate it.  Oh, and it was made in 1984!!! 

I'm still waiting for that elusive copy of "Kinda Blue"...  I've honestly found almost every other album I've wanted in GW or SA...

Thrifts are indeed a valuable resource!

I was wondering about Mr. Cat the other day.  Good to hear he is still around and bringing good luck.  Enjoy your new record! 
I don't need Google.  My wife says she knows everything.

I went back today on the off chance there might have been any I had missed.  Sure enough, there was 1 other sitting up front waiting on me.  Unbelievable!
