    blunderbuss2
    (198 items)

    Needed a larger bird feeding station & then it struck me, the Dutch phone Co. had taken down all their pay/card phones & probably had them lying around taking up storage space. Asking doesn't cost anything ! Told them my purpose & they gave me one ! They had some that were made to look antique with the crown on them but they weren't in the container opened for me. Should I go back and complain ? I just might.
    I was having to fill the small sugar bowl for my sugar birds ( now known to be mariquitas) up to 7 times a day. Not so much now as they are eating my soursop fruit as fast as it ripens.
    Sometimes, all you have to do is ask ! Are these U.S. made ?

      hey now u don't have to look for a phone booth to change in ...lol
    2. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      Maybe change to a 25 yr old ! I wish.
    3. Recordmantime, 5 years ago
      lol....I was thinking more along the line of a cape ... ya we all wish we were 25 agian and knew something ...smiling
    4. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      As long as the cape isn't too heavy ! LOL !! Jacky had already left for an un-warned Berlin when I got this. Maybe she can use it when she gets back to put on her cape with the big "B" on it. I'm sure you've guessed by now that she doesn't follow CW.

      Great idea:)

      oh the good old days BB2 when you could stick a little wad of paper up the change shoot and collect at the end of the day from the poor saps waiting for their change -- that and crushing the sides of the coke cans to loosen them from the dispensing mechanism -- so hard to be rebellious these days....
    7. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 5 years ago
      There are still ways T-Mon, just the penalties are stuffer ! LOL !!

      Thomas, you're incorrigible. Welcome to the club.
    9. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 3 years ago
      I'm a bad influence, Thomas.

      answer the phone, its for you ....
    11. blunderbuss2 blunderbuss2, 1 year ago
      A sugar bird slipped a slug in it and jammed the bloody thing, Roy.
    12. Roycroftbooksfromme1, 1 year ago
      I'd take it back and tell them you want your 10 bucks back ..smiling

      Anywhere Thomas. We have European mentality. That was really cramped changing in that thing !
