Schweitzer Auction conducted the Rhoda Bredow estate auction to- day at the Seward Harvest Hall. The auction included many unique items since she never married, lived on the farm where she was born, lived well into her 90's, and had no immediate family. There were many items including toys and perhaps this baby basket, were nearly 100 years old and still in good condition. While the old items sold well, there were also some bargains. I felt the stuffed animals, blankets, sheet and pillows that I bought were in that category. We set out the 27 stuffed animals and will be interested in the Great Grand Kids reaction when they see them for the first time.
While we wonder about the Kids reaction, it can't be with any more excitement than what Elaine and I showed while opening the wrapping from this 40oz box of Whitman's Chocolates. It was sent to us from a Niece and family from California and arrived in today's mail. This little kitten clinging to my knee is one of the many stuffed animals I brought home. I'm afraid it got knocked off when Tommy Armstrong went down again late in the 3rd quarter with Nebraska and Minnesota tied at 17-17.
