#85: Buy Something at Auction

#85: Buy Something at Auction

Last night I attended the annual Youth Unlimited fundraising dinner. Before the dinner there was a silent auction. For the 3rd year in a row I put a few bids in, not really expecting to come away with anything. But I guess third time lucky really means something because although I didn't get the hockey tickets or the suitcase, I did buy a beautiful painting for $100 (instead of $400!). How cool is that?!

It was only when I got home that I remembered I had "buy something at auction" (it was #85, in case you're wondering) on my Life List and that I could now scratch one more item off it. So very pleased with myself.

Here's a picture of the painting.
