Well, I hope 2013 is starting out as a good year for all of you! I’ve had a few issues, in a span of three days I managed to: Break a tooth, spent 4 hours in the Dental Chair having repairs. The next day, while attempting to clean a wooden Coca-Cola crate from the Netherlands, I managed to slip, fall and bruise my side and my elbow. Then the next day I managed to walk into a door, toes first! As I lay on the floor, I hoped that would be the end of my accidents. Although it has been 3 weeks and the toes are still causing issues. It has been hard to walk any distance. I still have swelling and bruising.
The week after all my accidents we went to Chattanooga to see some friends daughters compete in a Cheering Competition. We had a great time, but walking was an issue for me. We stopped at a few Antique Stores, but didn’t cover as much territory as normal due to my hobbling around.
I did run into a friend of mine from the Coca-Cola Club while in a North Georgia Antique Store. He lives in Tennessee and came down to see if any new Coca-Cola items had turned up. It is always great to run into Club members while out.
I did manage to find a few bottles, one Coca-Cola bottle from a City/State I did not know existed and found some sort of prototype for the Coca-Cola 32 ounce bottle as well as a few paper items dealing with Coca-Cola.
So, even though I had a few rough days in a row, I tried not to let it slow me down too much and still get out and have fun.
I hope you all have been able to venture out this winter and see collecting friends and find a few items to add to your collection!
AND remember-watch out for those doors!!!
