The lovely personal trainer was headed off to California early this morning, and so it was an early wake up call, and after heading down to make coffee at 3 am. I did a little teaching online, and grabbed the first cup, with the coffee maker having fulfilled the task at hand.
A bit later, I grabbed a second cup, and went back to my laptop; this time checking the usual sites for any interesting corkscrews.
Nothing on eBay of note, and I went back to teaching.
Sometime close to 4, I delivered a cup to the lovely, and headed back downstairs to “my office” (which is not really an office, it is simply a couch with a cup of coffee nearby) where I came upon an interesting listing on a non-eBay site, for a pair of legs with mother of pearl upper scales, with stripes on the lower.
The asking price was fair, and in short order a deal was done.
This morning, it looks like, the early bird got the worm!
