Did you buy a plane?

Linda, no plane purchases. My son got a couple boxes of stuff for $2 - the only bidder. Turns out one box was full of Perry Mason mysteries which my husband likes - so he did good. It was fascinating to watch the bidding and listen to the fast talking auctioneer.

Greetings from Australia.
This is an interesting photo - how many auctions involving aeroplanes could you go to? Not that many would be my guess. I do like the way you posed it with the auctioneer, plne in tow ritght in the middle.
The "bidders" appear quite nonchalant judging by their stance.

This photo intrigues me. I think it's the fellow on the far left and that you took the shot from a lower angle

I too thought you were going to tell us we were now virtual new owners.

Nice shot! I see there were not too many bidders.
