When Peach/Laura met up with me for supper when she was here, she brought me the most PHENOMENAL silver collector spoon from the state of Georgia. It is called a Spinner Collectors Spoon because the top of it has a disk of a Georgia peach and it rotates/spins. She told me I could get them in any Wal Mart(Peach lies like a rug...haven't found any at any Wal Marts yet! lol)
So yesterday morning we stopped for gas at a Pilot station. They tend to also serve the truckers of the world and they have a souvenir section in the store. I decided to look and LOW AND BEHOLD there was a PENNSYLVANIA SPINNER COLLECTORS SPOON!!!
So, Roger and I, being of unsound bodies and definitely fried minds, decided we'd stop at every.single.Pilot.station on the way back to Illinois that we came across and check for spoons. I figured that I could get one in Ohio, one in Indiana and one in Illinois.
THERE WERE NO MORE SPINNER SPOONS TO BE HAD! In fact, one Pilot in Indiana didn't even carry souvenir stuff. Oh sure, there were state spoons, but the tops didn't spin. And I'm determined to have a Spinner Collector Spoon from every US State! I even designed in my head the way they would be displayed on my wall AND I'm considering going to eBay and putting up a WANTED-STATE SPINNER COLLECTORS SPOONS(except for Georgia and Pennsylvania) with a $10 Finders Fee---in other words, you find my spoon that HAS to be a spinner collector spoon, email me with details and a pic and I will pay for the spoon, the shipping AND a $10 Finders Fee. If more than one person from a state finds a spinner collectors spoon then the earlier date and time(provided they have the correct kind of spoon) will get the Finders Fee.
And, yes, I'm certifiably nuts.
Just wanted to clear that up...
So I am on a QUEST for these state spinner collectors spoon and it's all Peach's fault! lol
And yes, I have tried Googling for them, including the company that makes the one Peach got for me but apparently the company was just a distributor and knew nothing from whence they came(probably black market items with MY luck!)
Hallie, bless her pea pickin' heart, wanted to send me one spoon from her kitchen drawer but it wasn't ~quite~ what I am looking for. But Hallie deserves PROPS all the same! Yeah Hallie!!!
I have the pictures done, but it will be Thursday before they are up. Tomorrow is Wordful Wednesday and today I have to earn some money with a negative 60,000 spoon count and knees that seem to be rubbing their bones together.
Glad to be home!
