It’s time for another episode of Junkin Joe! Come on in and check out some great features and a wonderful Linky Party where everyone is welcome. A great place to show off your vintage and thrifty finds…upcycled projects, refurbished furniture and more! We would love it if you join us today!
But first…a strange thing happened on the way to Good Will…
Welcome everyone! How are you today. This is the part that we share Joe’s finds or upcycled projects… we had plans on having a few new finds for you…but a strange thing happened on the way to Good Will…Joe never got there!
Joe was on his way to Good Will on a sweltering afternoon. He took his normal route. Then he was stopped at a traffic light and he glanced to his right…something caught his eye…he took a double take and really was very perplexed. So he turned into the next side street…parked and walked to the spot where he saw a bit of a glimmer and movement…you are not going to believe this …but it was a plastic bag with a gold fish in it…????? I won’t go into my al spew about how some people mistreat animals and don’t regard their live’s in general…but really…come on???? Why??? Ok…so he snatched the bag up with a very shocked little guy in it and came back home so he could get this little one in a larger space and hopefully revive him. Now what to do when you do not have the proper home for a goldfish? You improvise until you get a tank!
Remember that grand punch bowl Junkin Joe found awhile back? Well it isn’t filled with some lively brew…it has a temporary visitor…
He’s one tough little guy so hence his name…
For those of you that are not familiar with this name…he is also formerly known as The Rock! lol!
He will be moving to a new fish tank on Saturday…till then he will be hanging out at the “crystal ballroom”!
You just never know what you will wind up using that special find for!!!
So…the Junkin Joe finds have been pre-empted but will return next week with a fish update!!!
Now…let’s check out what all of you have been up to!!!!
Then…we shall party!
