Auction Update

We did get the winning bid for the metal cooler. $10! The wife got a call today from the auction house. The tractor bell went for 'way more' than the $25 we bid. The cooler reminds me of the coolers we had on our porch. The milk man ('Old Man Miller') used to deliver milk in glass jugs 3 times a week (we were big milk drinkers). You still can get milk delivered in certain areas, but home delivery of milk is now a vestige of a simpler time.

A Similar Kamp Kold Cooler

We've seen similar coolers for as much as $100! Ours has a slightly different handle and is not in as good shape. The wife bought it for its decorative appeal. A fun find.

thats so neat!! I wish they still delivered milk- the way the little drinks it, it would make my life so much easier! ;) Show us more pics when you can- I wonder if you could put a few milk jugs in it with some flowers? I don't know, but I sure do have a huge collection if you want a few!
