The Right Place At The Right Time!

Talk about LUCKY! I was at the right place at the right time on this one!

The story goes like this...I'll set the scene,

I was fluffing my booth at our local antique mall. I ran into one of the guys that works there.

Me: Whoa, can I touch that?
Mark: Yes, it's heavy.
Me (looking at the price tag): Wow, $20! Is it for sale?
Mark: No, I am buying it from him. (looking over his shoulder)
Me: Wow, I love it and it's cast iron!
Me: (looking at other guy) Do you have another one?
Other guy: No. It's too heavy to hang on my walls!
Mark: I am taking this home. I think it's cool but if the wife doesn't like it, you can have first dibs.
Me: Well in that case, I hope she doesn't like it!
I get a call the next day from Mark and he said that his wife did not like it! I drove there to pick it up and he says...
Mark: I just got an offer for $40.
Me: (giving Mark the evil eye) Um, I recall framing an antique poster for you for FREE!
Mark: Okay, then $20 will be fine!
Me: (smiling and trying not to jump out of my skin in excitement)

There are times when you have to stick up for yourself! And I felt that this was it.

I sent this picture to my son to see what kind of deer it was. He said that it is a Red Stag.
 I LOVE it!
