The Next Year--2008

The next year, at little at a time, I bought the remaining thimbles from Birchcroft.  By that time, many of the original thimbles that had been there were gone.  In one final desperate buying spree, I bought all the ones I didn’t have yet--all at once.  Although it seemed like a lot, and the amount of “buildings” I received was enormous, it was still not extremely expensive.  By the  next Christmas, Thimble City experienced a population boom.  I not only had a city, but a countryside complete with farms and waterwheels.  I had an amusement park and a Santa/Christmas area.  With all the new additions, it occurred to me that this was no longer just a city, but it had grown into an entire county.

And then there was Thimble County.
