Sunday morning as I was getting ready to break fast I noticed one of my neighbors down the street dragging out a couple of tables into her driveway and putting out stuff for a sale. When we finally got out of the house I found out that she was not alone.
As it turned out Mum and I didn’t make it to the flea after all. There was a full fledged neighborhood wide yard sale going on, apparently both Saturday and Sunday. I knew nothing about is on Saturday – which was no doubt a good thing since I managed to get a lot that needed doing done around the house.
So Mum and I drove all around the neighborhood looking for bargains. We didn’t actually get out on the open road until after one o’clock – and that was jut to go across the street into the industrial park because there was a yard sale going on over there too!
My haul consisted primarily of tools for my shop. At one sale I picked up a whole slew of drill bits. They look brand new and set me back a whopping $2. At the same sale I got a small stick welder that runs on regular house currant. That set me back all of $10. I may spend as much as the welder cost me at Lowe’s buying welding rod. At the sale across the street at the ‘got junk’ place I got a small electric chain saw. So now I’ll be all set for the zombie apocalypse – at least for as long as the generator holds out…
Mum got a slew of romance novels – to help turn her into a zombie… (CQTM!)
I did finally make it down the street to drop off the stuff I’d loaded up Saturday night in our storage bin.
Then we met a friend at Uno’s for a late lunch. Lunch was good but the desert was to die for! Bananas Foster! I don’t care if it sends my glucose into the stratosphere – it’s that good!
Now I said something about going to work to rest… Not a chance! I’ve spent the morning taking measurements of various rooms for the guy who’s planning some changes around the office.
I need a nap!
