I was so excited by my latest "investment" that I felt compelled to document. It's Friday morning 5:17am
Earlier this week I was perusing listing on Trade Me when I came across this.Vintage ATARI Computer
The description was fairly scant and read, " Vintage ATARI computer includes monitor, key boards, floppy drive, plug and play games,joy sticks,cassette games as per photo's " Start Price $10 Buy Now $20.
Flash thought at time "hmmm Do I make a bud in the hope that i can get this treasure for less than the buy now?"
After nearly pushing the left mouse button through the desk to beat you all to the BUY NOW
, I was the proud owner of a mystery box of 2 Atari "Key boards"
With time now available It's a good look at photos...
I ran to tell the Mr`s with great delight and a massive grin!
The result of my announcement to the female keeper of sanity was a great education in the following points...
A: Taupo IS indeed a 512km round trip from our home in Palmerston North.
B: An overnight stay in a lady suitable accommodation is a pre-requisite for a trip of this nature. ( Fortunately, I negotiated this out by wit, hypnoses and mention of some shopping at the great lake )
C: I have collected a lot of Junk in a short time.
D: I may be in-line as the next character on the Television show "Neighbors at war" as a hoarder. (Great show) See http://tvnz.co.nz/neighbours-at-war/index-group-4520329
It's now 5.52am, We're due to set off and I have just enough time for coffee OR a wee... Coffee!
I'll take some photos and itemise find on return. Have a great day.
