DIARY OF A USED LOCKER ENTRY 4 – My New Coat Of Primer!

It’s me again; Locker 6212.

Admittedly it’s been awhile since we last spoke, as my new owner has been sanding my exterior and removing alllll the little bits of rust that I had acquired during my stay in sunny Southern California.  I had some minor bits on my feet (floor) but otherwise I was in pretty good condition.

It’s me again–Locker 6212.

So as Thanksgiving approached, I did the usual stuff people do.  Of course there was Black Friday and oh believe you me I was there to take advantage of the great deals.
