It's a miracle!!!



I went downtown Montreal yeserday afternoon (to dine with girlfriends) and I so had to stop at my fave Salvation Army...I was pushing my cart,thinking that the client's profile had changed (not so much the old weird guys, but a lot of families-with kids, that is sad) when a shape caught my eyes...Could it be????
OMG,OMG,OMG,OMG,OMG!!!! A pink refrigerator dish with the old lid!!!! OMG,OMG,OMG!!! IT'S MINE, MINE,MINE ALL MINE YOU HEAR? GODDAMMIT GET AWAY FROM ME!!!!
Of course I took it! I've been looking for one 4EVER! 2 years ago my Dad wanted to buy the set for me, but I actually said no....Can you believe that? It thought the price was WAY too steep!
And I found other cool stuff too, but the best part was that when I came up to the cash the cashier looked at the pink Pyrex and had this disgusted look (like I can't believe they want me to charge 4.99 for that piece of crapola!!!) and charge me .99 cents for it! SCORE!!!!!
I also found the Women's day encyclopedia of Cookery (vol 1 & 2) and assorted knick knacks! And on top of it all I got to meet my friends and laugh like a crazed hyena and eat at a restaurant and be on my own in the big city....The restaurant we went to is called Les 3 Brasseurs (the 3 Brewers). They make delicious beer on the premises! But the food makes me wonder why a chain from Belgium (definitely known for their incredible fries) is serving frozen fries, and pre-molded meat patties in the burgers....
Guess what? It's rainning again!!! A fine little rain, like you see by the seashore....
I don't know what I'll do today except a health walk to the farm stand to get some field raspberries while it's still time!
Don't forget to leave a comment on the giveaway post if you want to be included in the draw! If you have a ton of those cute little dishes, I appreciate your visit and your comment all the same!

Didn't think so.

Vonlipi said...

We should send the rain to somewhere dry or something....Now the rain is on and off and I actually see blue sky a couple of hours everyday! ;)
