A couple of days ago, there was this fabulous snappy alligator carved corkscrew that was listed on ebay. I had contacted the seller, as there was a reserve, and with the bids increasing…the reserve still wasn’t hit. Well, I placed a snipe bid…knowing it was below the reserve, but hoping that after the dust settled, I would have been the high bidder, and the seller and I could negotiate a deal.
And, then it happend. Completely blindsided by Don Bull. Who pounced on the aforementioned gator with gusto. He too, came up short of the reserve, but through a couple of emails negotiated to get the snappy fellow into his hands.
Well, as the old adage goes, there’s plenty of gators in the swamp. I am sure another will come along eventually.
