Today's first article titled "cool animal hybrids" lead me to do a post today about cool things. Cleaning house I didn't find any dead bodies or weird animals but I did find a couple of cool things. First, the cool animal article:
I cleaned the upstairs first. Cleaning out one of the closets I found something my dad gave me shortly before he died:
Pretty cool, huh? It still works too.
Moving on down to the downstairs the next cool thing I found was a piece of art. A statue. It reminded me of the story behind it. A son of a client came into my office one day. He said he couldn't afford to pay me to do his tax return and he didn't want his dad to pay for because he wanted to be on his own. When I asked what he did for a living he told me he was an artist. I said OK, I'll do your tax return and you make me something. About a week later he came in with this stature. His tax return was really easy and I was only going to charge him $150. Two hours after he delivered the statue my next door office neighbor, Dick, offered me $450 for it. I turned it down because I liked the story. It has now been valued over a grand.
