Went to the swap meet this weekend and guess what I brought home. The lady just wanted $10 for this "bird watcher" as she put it. I think it must have been an Ex- Husbands.

It is always someone else who gets these great deals. I intend, when I leave this mortal coil, to have a warm and cozy home for all my stuff. The thought of my wife selling my treasures for pennies really irks me. Sorry Hon!

By the by the picture came up as a box with an "X' in it. I have long ago stopped trying to post pictures as I am just not technical enough! Shame as I have some cool stuff I want to post!

Don't worry, something will come your way. I used to feel the same way. What's wierd is I was just thinking of saving up for a spotting scope.

BTW, The picture comes up okay for me. Does anyone else NOT see it?

I would have given her 10 bucks for just the stand! But, it was raining and "I" was doing her a favor for helping lighten her load back home. :D

There's a trick...change the extension from .jpg to .pic and the picture should come up with no problems...

BTW, nice scope!

Ahh, I see, I'll give that a try, thanks for the advise! Yeah, not bad for 10 bucks. After picking up another rifle over the weekend, I'm pretty much broke again. With alot more time now being spent on the rifle range I really needed a spotting scope. Trouble is, every time I save up for one and get some money actually saved up, I go " ooh, ooh... but I'm only half way from buying a (insert new rifle here) " then poof! The plans for the spotting scope go out the window! :banghead:
