I bought the Fire King and the chopper because I hoped I might sell them for a profit on eBay. Well, don't think that's going to happen. There are tons of the little french onion soup bowls around. And the jar appears to be from preserves, married to a chopper top that doesn't even screw on! DARN. Buyer beware- I need to do more homework.
Anyway, so far I've remade the planter in to a pincushion, and spruced up the wooden horse.
Now, the second part of my mission was to get Adam a new social security card. I printed out the form, filled it out, and took his birth certificate with me. Turns out that a birth certificate is not good enough- my 2 y.o. needs a photo ID. Yes, you read it right. Where- I asked not too politely- would a 2 y.o. get a photo ID? Oh, you can bring a print out of his shot record (HUH, how's that better than a birth certificate??) or a medical card. BUT they medical card must have his name on it. Well- big shocker here- ours plan doesn't list names, just the parents. Great. So I travelled about 45 miles round trip, wasted time and gas, and bought some clunkers at the thrift store. It's Monday, all right.
