Ever wish you had bought something and every time something happens you remember

that you could have had that and it would be so nice right now, etc.? I did not buy a galvanized wash tub at Big Lots one time. Now I haven't seen any there or anywhere else. Every once in a while, I wish I had it. It would be nice for soaking items to make paper for crafts, it would be nice to soak milkweed stems to get the soft fibers to separate from the harder ones so I can use the harder ones in crafts, etc. Do you ever wish you had bought something and remember it every so often when you see something? What was it and what keeps reminding you that you should have bought it?

When there is a sale on a food item and I get several of them it seems I should have even gotten more. They never last long enough. I remember I should have gotten milk when I see the cereal and it looks so good. Or we have beans fixes so deliciously and know I have forgotten eggs at the store so we can't have cornbread with them.

Yeah, I hear you. I used to have lots of stuff stocked up, but now I can't afford that. So I have things very tight and it leads to less flexibility with meals and it always feels like I could have had something. Oh well, maybe someday it will be like it was again.

[b]I surely do have a regret! I once saw a fabulous print of a little angel that might've been drawn to illustrate "The Littlest Angel" story, but not having anything saccharine about it at all, which is the case in 99% of such paintings. This little guy was an absolutely beautiful boy (to tell you the truth, he looked exactly like an 8-year-old version of Illya Kuryakin, if that means anything to you...). His blond hair was tousled, & while he had no halo as such (crooked or otherwise--), he had a subtle, soft glow...& a slightly mischievous glint in his eyes. He had feathers in his wings which didn't lie neatly, but were a bit askew in various directions. I saw it in a "Seventh Avenue" catalog, & was instantly smitten with it. Then I saw the price. I know $40 isn't a lot for a fine print, but I just couldn't justify it on my less-than-stellar salary...so I sighed, tossed the catalog away, & tried to forget it. But I never have. I did find a somewhat muddy version of it, no doubt a bootleg, on some screen-saver/wallpaper site, but my old computer took it with it to computer heaven when it gave up the ghost. So, I remember it fondly, but to this day I wish I'd somehow been able to scrape together the money. I'd love to have him & his enigmatic little half-smile on my wall!
