The auctioneer started the bid on an old cylindrical grater at $15. and with no bids he dropped to $10. and then to $5. The audience was very still and no bid was forthcoming so the auctioneer made like he covered the mike and said to his helper’s, “You know guys, with a simple tea light these make a fantastic table decoration and they give off some fantastic shadow effects. The grater ended up selling for $27; well above the starting offer of $15.
Moral, and more importantly, the reason behind the story is that a paddling and camping couple friends of ours, Marion and Duane, suggested something from the winter ski season may be of benefit for the summer paddling season.
Goes to show you, it’s not always what you’re looking at….but rather, how you see it!
