I went to the house of the person who was giving me the astronaut case and almost burst into tears when I saw it.

Why?  Because the people on the Freecycle network are so generous!  I’ve given away a lot of really great things through this network, knowing the one day I’ll receive things that I need at some point in the future, all for free.  The kindness and generosity of this group is what really gets to me.  This is a group of people, who, like me, can’t stand to throw anything away, KNOWING that there is someone out there who can use it.  So this Freecycle network is the perfect outlet for me, and an amazing resource. Freecycling really works!

Alright, off my soapbox.  So, I pull up, walk up to this person’s porch and sitting there is a bag for me.  Mind you, you don’t really know what you’re getting when someone offers you something; you only have a written description.  It’s really being grateful for free and working with it, instead of being picky.  And most of the time, if you walk up and don’t like what you see, you don’t have to take it.  Anyhow,  I grabbed it, got back into my car and peeked into the bag.  I swear, my eyes started watering.  I was so touched because of the generosity of the person who saw my Wanted post, actually took the time to respond and made arrangements for me to pick it up!  So happy!

I don’t think he’ll need it for Halloween, so I’ll wait to give it as a gift on his birthday.

It’s a 10-piece set, which includes a shovel, tweezers, rocket-shaped scraper, container (all to scoop and collect moon rockets, of course), an American flag and stand, a drink cup (?) with a straw, a walkie-talkie, silver wrist bands (?) and binoculars, so you can see the planet Earth, from the moon!

It’s a little dusty, but here it is!

Do the Happy Dance!!  Now I just need to find (or make) a costume!
