And in other news...

I need to start blogging again. REALLY!

So, anyway....
I decided to google a few of my names today. It was interesting. Mostly the results were comments I made on other blogs or my photos. This is probably because I haven't been blogging, although I really need to find time again. I miss writing.

I wrote this blog back in January of 2010 in which I talked about a train case that I got from a lady on the North End. She had advertised a free cabinet that I wanted. We spent a lot of time talking and she had lots of neat stuff that I wanted to check out. I was able to get quite a few interesting items, including a "commode" (small table with drawers and shelves that was used for holding the washbowl and pitcher back in the days before plumbing) that was just like the one I was supposed to get from my Grandmother, but never did. Other than the fact that it was used in the garage and was covered in different paint and other interesting stuff, it is identical to the one my Grandmother always promised me. Long story for another time about why I never got the one from my grandmother. Maybe when I get around to refinishing the one I have I will post it on the "Better After" blog. I'm hoping that will be this summer sometime. Oh, I digress...back to the point of my blog.

So, anyway...
Imagine my surprise at finding the following "interpretation" of my blog on a sales site. From what I can gather, their material must be translated from the English language to theirs and then back again to English. That is the only explanation I can come up with for this horrible piece of writing that they have attributed to me. They did credit me at the bottom by showing the source, but what if a person just reads that piece and doesn't bother to check out the source to find out that I really do know how to use the English language? YIKES!

Here is their translation:

A World of Words: The train case.

I don't have notwithstanding today to highlight all the things I got. I do however requirement to put away a blog to this one jotting, the train victim. This was sitting on the patio as I walked up to the back door to batter. I told Tonia set to rights away that I wanted it. I have a train happening that belonged to my old lady and I insufficiency to sit them both in my sewing margin to maintain ribbons and such. Back in the day baggage sets came with these smidgin cases. Some people called them forge-up, cosmetic, or dear cases, but most people (at least the people I knew) called them train cases. I take it for granted it is because more touring took task on trains in those days and in these cases is where you kept your main items for looking your master so that you didn't have to unrestrained and go through your bigger suitcases while traveling. The riveting part about this one is that Tonia's parents outfitted these cases with their own view of tour kits. She said they had divers collections in each one. The one I brought adept in was a coffee kit. Here are the pictures.
