Yard Sale Adventure

I got to drive down to Independence Friday and yesterday to sissie Beth's house (By the way - today is her birthday!!! - Happy Birthday Sissie!) with a car load of junk ... we were having a yard sale! The weather was perfect, and an air show was even staged in our honor!

It rained a little overnight Friday night and I found this heart on a chair Saturday morning! Some of our customers weren't quite sure what to make of us when we would suddenly stop the sale and run off to take pictures of clouds. Or a chair. Or .....

That fat "raindrop" that landed in my hair, out of a clear blue sky ... a flock of swallows wheeling overhead. Uh sissie, that wasn't a raindrop, was it!?!

Thank you, sissie and family for a wonderful 2 days of fun, adventure, a little pocket change, and loads of laughter! I can't wait to do it again! Next time I'll bring a hat!!!


  1. Sounds like a great time, except for the "raindrop"! That happened to me one time at DisneyWorld.

  2. Hahaaa...I couldn't believe that presumptious bird landing a birdie bop on your head out of the blue that way....And the slug we found wandering around on the back of Alan's shirt...?! (guffaw)

    I haven't had so much fun in a long LONG time! I can't wait to do it all over again!

    Tee hee! (grin) (snicker)

    Snowcones anyone?!

  3. Congratulations you just joined the semi proud ranks of my new sorority "Sisters who have been Shat upon by Seagulls" Yes I too have been annointed by a single gull passing overhead and I must say he was much more generous with the bop. It must be some kind of kismet, or just a magnetic personality.
    I glad the rest of the day was a good one.

  4. Hi
    Thank you so much for the heads up about Beths birthday :)
    Now as for the gull ,our son is almost 30 and still swears a gull spends it's entire life looking for un suspecting humans to poop on :)
    Have a fabulous week.
    Happy Trails
