I’m sure this fine. I only bought it in, oh, 2016, at Big Lots. I’m sure it’s fine.
I went to Big Lots yesterday. I didn’t intend to go to Big Lots — it was T.J. Maxx I wanted to visit — but while at Big Lots I snapped the photo above, of the crescent moon and Venus just after sunset. I wanted to go to T.J. Maxx because I’ve seen reports thatContinue reading “The Cosmic Dance”
This afternoon I went to Big Lots. I needed a fan for my apartment; the motor for my fan had seized up and burned out.
