YET ANOTHER GARAGE SALE!

A garage sale, also called a "yard sale", "rummage sale", "tag sale", "attic sale", "moving sale", or "junk sale", is an informal, irregularly scheduled event for the sale of used goods by private individuals, in which "block sales" are allowed, so that sellers are not required to obtain business licenses or collect sales tax.

Typically the goods in a garage sale are unwanted items from the household with the home owners conducting the sale. The goods are sometimes new, like-new, or just usable, offered for sale because the owner does not want or need the item, to minimize their possessions, or to raise funds.

I seem to be attending an awful lot of garage sales these days! This time it was a four family sale at Brian & Danielle's... They sent me home with a color printer, bread maker, candles, a polka dot blouse and a kids tie dye shirt! I watched them barter & make the BIG bucks, we discussed when it's appropriate to let a friend breast feed your baby, reminisced of garage sales past, ate McFlurries, brainstormed baby names & all things pink, drank dirty martinis, I lost my keys, I found my keys, I lost some money, I found some money, we were shocked that the cassette tapes of barbra streisand didn't sell, Danielle told my "McDonald's french fries in the bushes" story to the group, I learned my sunglasses are horrible & ruining my eyes, we did some sweating, talked about going to the pool (just talk), the kids had a lucrative lemonade stand, Presley was a pirate, babies we held and I kissed Danielle's sweaty forehead - heck of a day!!!

Danielle gave me my birthday present - a HAWAII state plate for my collection! - Is it SAD that I have a collection of old lady state plates?
It already made the wall!!!

Only after a plane crash on a deserted island. And then only for a day or so. After that the baby is on its own with the mangos and sand crabs and stuff.
