Well this makes up for being awake so early this morning.
On the AP wire at Lycos:
ELMIRA, N.Y. (AP) — A woman recovered a ceramic turtle containing the ashes of her husband’s previous wife Tuesday after accidentally selling it for 50 cents at a rummage sale.
Anita Lewis of Elmira said she didn’t know it held the ashes when she sold the turtle Saturday to a woman who had plans to use it as a cookie jar, despite being unable to get the lid open.
The woman who sold the turtle urn got it back from the Salvation Army Thrift Shop where it had wound up.
Consumer tip: If the cookie jar doesn’t open, it may not be a cookie jar.
Just so y’know.
From whence came the art:
I assume the lid opens.
