Ebay: Feel The Love

I am convinced that events in life are just meant to be. Chance meetings are meant to be, too. I love Ebay. Not only is it a medium for trading items, but also an opportunity to meet those you are trading with.

We were met by eight canine friendlies: Teddy, Honey, Rosie, Lindsay, Pickles, Alistair, Wallace and Leo, along with their Master, Keith who's repeated requests for his furry pack to be quiet proved quite futile. Visitors had arrived, and they couldn't contain their excitement. Keith scrambled through one gate and strolled towards us, opening the main vehicular gate so we could drive onto the property. "Would you like a cup of tea?" he asked.

A cup of tea? Really?

I knew instantly we would be friends. A cup of tea and a good chat. The stuff treaties are signed and sealed with.

A house full of character, depicting a love of dogs, nature, travel, people and all things home was a delight to be in. A garden with nooks, crannies, theme garden beds and naughty gnomes invited us, - urged us to inspect further. Paddocks containing projects in progress engaged us, and the glimpse of a river confined to the base of a group of cuckaburra-infested gum trees convinced us how fortunate we were to have had the pleasure of this new acquaintance. Saying goodbye was akin to farewelling old, familiar friends.

Product as described. Great Communication. Wonderful People. And dogs.

Merci Amis!

Isn't it nice when you get little gifts like that? It makes the world seem a nicer place to be.

This is an inspiring post. It makes me want to redecorate my yard, my house, etc. with whatever I have on hand. And, perhaps, even re-arrange all my furniture. (smiles)

It's like a bonus on your ebay transaction. Wonderful!

Like starting a blog and meeting a liberated believer who lives on the other side o' the world.

Win-win.
