I kick myself every single day! Why? Because I left a bid of several hundred dollars on a fabulous photo of downtown Desdemona during the oil boom. The 5′ beauty came up for auction last year at a time when I had to be out of town…so I left a standing bid. I wanted the photo because of my grandfather’s tie to Hog Town, as he always called Desdemona, and I didn’t really think about anyone else wanting to pay much for it. Wrong! The crazy thing is that I would have paid much more so it was very silly of me to limit my bid.
Yesterday, I happened to open my Desdemona file and lo and behold, there was an old newspaper copy (that I didn’t even know I had) of the very photo that I let slip through my fingers!
