A 'Six Word Saturday' threesome

my Six Words(three sets today) :
Just about depleted my bulb stash
 
 
In the U.S. we have declared these items off limits.  It started last year with 100 watt incandescent bulbs and now we have added 75's, 60,s, and some smaller wattages.  I stocked up good on 75's last year but already am running low on 60's.  Oh well, I'll just smuggle some in from Mexico next fall when I come back from a golfing holiday.  I had to replace two of these 75's yesterday.

My other stash, stamps, doing better
 
 
While I was adding to my "Forever" first class U.S. stamps I ran across these Harry Potter special issues at our P.O.  I got two, one for me and another for a white elephant Christmas gift next year.  Our postage has gone up three cents this year.  One cent increase is permanent and two cents are "temporary" until the U.S. Post Office has eliminated it deficit.
 
 
 
This cat reminds me of Farrah
 
 
This cat almost always greets me when I pay our storage monthly rent.  She is very a very friendly "outside cat."  Our Farrah started as an inside cat but when still a kitten she wouldn't train to stay off (she climbed) Mrs. Jim's sheers she very quickly became an "outside cat."
 
She didn't seem to mind that and hung around our back yard and the little flower garden (one rose plus) beside the garage.  She died in her sleep at a ripe age, asleep in the garden under a bush.
 
Karen named her Farrah Fawcett Minou (French cat names link) after the American actress Fawcett lady (Farrah Fawcett Googled here ) because of her long pretty hair.  I found her in a basket in front of the Nassau Bay grocery store near my work at the JSC NASA Space Center.  A group of kids were having fun, sitting there giving away a litter of their kittens that day.

I think I have one box of the old lightbulbs left--but I have a big supply of Forever stamps, as I hardly put anything in the mail anymore. Love those Harry Potter stamps!

 
We don't have any of these anymore. Well not in a box. I think we have a couple in lamps, but they'll go eventually.

Lovely cat that Farrah. They can destroy your home though. Bless their hearts.

Have a fabulous weekend. ☺
 
In Canada we switched a long time ago. The new type actually last a lot longer and are apparently safer.
 
We've switched roles, Jim! My 6WS's are getting shorter, yours longer! :)
Have a happy week!
 
I'm as "green" as could be, but I really loathe those dim-out eco bulbs. They make me depressed.

All French cats seem to be called Minou. Imagine the confusion in town with each householder calling "Minou" at the front door. Ours morphed into Mina, Minouchka, Minouchki.
 
She is just the cutest kitty ever, and it's funny but we seem to find a lot of outdoor cats that become our friends, here and there throughout life. Kind of a cool name too! Thanks for reminding me that we need to put light bulbs on our list again too! Enjoy your week!
 
We have few extra bulbs but very many stamps. And more than enough cats at a current count of two. We're in the process of purging as much extra from the house as possible so trying to be choosy about what stays in inventory and not buying a lot extra so we won't be adding anything extra at this point, at least not to any of those three categories.

Thanks for playing! :)
 
Smuggle? Please be careful, Dr Jim :)
 
Our hardware store here in our little town had the new bulbs for .50 cents apiece for months- so we have a lifetime supply now. And aren't those Harry Potter stamps cool! Cheers!
