|Showing off my finds|
First off.....blog friends, meet my friend, Beth. Beth and I have become friends through our husbands as David and Beth's husband work together. Beth had emailed me with the thought of going on a little excursion to shop at the "Junk Bonanza". WHAT is that???? Well....for those familiar with WNY, you might somewhat compare it to an ultra Clarence, NY Antique World. Yet the Junk Bonanza is only held 2 weekends a year. The bonanza goes on & on with one treasure after another. After meeting for a Panera's for some energy to start our day, Beth and I spent a good part of the day visiting each of the vendors at the bonanza. I was happy to leave there with my finds - an old school ice tray and an old school black rotary phone that is in working order (calling out on it from my house was the first hing I did when I got home).
Just a spur of the moment trivia game inspired by the junk bonanza....one of the vendors had a couple bins with miscellaneous game pieces. Do you know the name of the games to which these cards belong? (Check comments for the answer)

|This was my audience....am I NUTS?!?!|

Afterward I calmed my nerves and adrenaline with another Summit Beer with David as we meandered inside the opened doors of the Fitzgerald Theater to take a peek. For anyone that listens to Prairie Home Companion on the radio, I was actually surprised as to how small and intimate is the interior of the Fitzgerald Theater. Since our sitter needed to be home early that night, David and I had an early night too......and with one ear on the door listening for rioters/autograph seekers I wondered what kind of trouble can I get into next weekend???
