Get these beans into a roaster.
I'll start with a $60 bid.

John Despres
Sorry, Susan.

I'll raise it to $70.00.

Respect the bean.

Not so Fast There, Abernathy.

Let's try $75.00
Ok everybody..... These greens are way too good to be going at this low of a price! These came out of my personal stash and they are all vac packed and have been stored in cool dark humidity controlled environment. None of these greens are older than "08" crop and have not been in my possession for over 6 months! These are a steal! I'd hate to have to bid on my own greens......! I'll bet on Saturday all these items TAKE OFF! Better bid early! Jim

"How we treat our children determines who we are!"
Such a dilemma for me. I would dearly love to run away with these beans at this tiny price.....Who wouldn't....Now, fess up....Who wouldn't.

On the other hand, it really would be unkind both to John and to the Kids....

I can take it....Go ahead....Raise the stakes....(I guess...:-((()


You're a Saint! Thanks for bidding!!! I'm sure someone by Saturday will challenge your bid. They are packed and ready to be shipped and I hope you win! Jim

OK, I'll go public with this. I shared it with a couple others so far.

I have dropped out of bidding on this week's items. There are a couple in particular I want, but will not be able to defend any bids as I will be out of the loop with no online access Friday through Sunday. Money being somewhat short, plotting is a big part of the game, so I can't even turn it over to someone to bid for me.


Ethically, I cannot run up bids I cannot defend to the end.

Someone get over here and challenge Susan for this astounding lot of greens. I'm guessing she has deep pockets because she called me Abernathy. That's a rich person word.


I'll be back all next week and will be taking names later. A higher power will have to sort it out when I'm finished with you all. Bring it on.

Respect the bean.

Okay, I gotta stop looking and make a move here ...

$85 :Clap:
Okay, I asked for it....that doesn't mean I'm happy, and I'm certainly (most certainly) not rich. Gee, that's something my old (not rich) dad used to say to me when he thought I was getting ahead of myself.

Anyway, I'm gonna go take a hammer to the piggy bank and see what I can come up with.
