Well, OK, I put together another couple of auctions. I now have 6 simultaneous ones going, all based on large inventory sources. I've even made 3 sales.
By my rough calculation, I only need another few hundred or so to make this work. So I should probably get cracking, or some such expression.
I made it to my parents' again today. I didn't do a hell of a lot for them this time, but we had a pleasant dinner, and some good conversation.
And that's about it.
