Wasted Trip?

First off Best Buy's inventory system is terrible. Checked online to make sure they had the Bamboo stylus. Computer says 5 in stock.
Took a quick bus to Regency. Got to Best Buy and guess what? They don't have any. Well that was a wasted trip. Since this was to be a quick trip I had enough bus fare to and from. Did pick up food from Panera. Then back to the bus stop, where I miss placed my fare. I turned into one of the folks who fumble for change. Could not find my emergency $1.00. Crap!
So, I asked for a dollar from a nice guy.The one thing I do is that I carry an item for trade. AMC Free pop corn coupon, full packs of unopened gum, or small business card sized sketches. I gave a sketch to the guy who gave me a dollar.What a good Samaritan.

No item from Best Buy, but knowing there are good folk out there, priceless. Or worth a drawing.

Remember, always carry an item to trade in an emergency.

My New iPad Thrice Case

As I have acquired the iPad Thrice (That is my name for the New iPad), I need to have the leather craftsman make adjustments to the one he handcrafted two years ago. This guy did a great job.
The original iPad is thicker and the Thrice is thinner, so I need the holders adjusted and I am having changes made to the front.
First off, I really wanted a skin for the Thrice. Gelaskins and UniqueSkins do not have skins yet but, I had left over fake wood 3M material I use for my Steampunk bike project. (A tip, Unique skins allows you to design your own skin and sometimes they run a buy one get one free, so I utilized a 17" Mac book design to give me the most amount of fake wood design) I did not have enough to fully cover it but I was able to cut strips and create a 60's look for the back. The back is covered enough to save the aluminum from being scratched.

Well this will take a couple of weeks as the craftsman will be out of town, so I need to have a temp one made.
I found this great Edward Gorey appointment book from 1999 that is close to the exact size. There is a wee short length but will not harm it. The inside pages really did not amount to anything so I remover them with an Exacto knive. Then I re-enforced the inside with black duct tape. To hold the pad in place I used elastic super glued to the inside. This will be my back up case until I get my leather one back.
