Welcome! This is a backdoor iron welcome mat at the Mustard House. It's an antique/gift shop that we stopped into a few weeks ago. We got a lamp for the bedroom, a small round mirror, an old duck print in a frame, a tiny glass, blue pitcher for the windowsill and a Halloween decorated sign that says "Spooky". We're a crazy pair. You see, while most of our friends are in the process of downsizing, it seems that Elenka and me are still actively upsizing, gathering stuff. That's a little bit of me. I'm happily doing the opposite of what a lot of my friends are doing anyway. Like George in the Seinfeld episode: The Opposite, sick of failing at most things he does the 'opposite' and approaches this good-looking woman at Monks "I'm fat, balding, have no job and live with my parents." She looks at him with great interest and a sexy smile. It works, at least for awhile. While he spends his time doing the opposite of what he thinks he should be doing, Jerry is actively 'taking a loss to make a gain.' Everything comes out 'even steven' for him. I like to think this is what we are up to collecting stuff, still. Maybe we're making a gain to take a loss. Does this make any sense to you?
