Carport Sale

It's going real slow here at my carport sale today. I've had maybe 10-12 people here and brought in a whopping $2.55 so far.  But on the flip side...I've been able to get some birthday presents wrapped and ready for the end of next week. Had a nice visit with my son when he stopped by here, earlier. And I've cleaned the kitchen and kept up on Journal alerts. I still may go out and mow the front lawn.  I can do all that from the front of the house and see people if they stop by. I'm only using half of my double carport this year since Barbara made me get rid of so much stuff when she helped me de-clutter a few weeks back.  Bob's truck is parked on the other side...he's in San Diego for a week visiting cousins, so it's a good thing there's not as much stuff.   Hopefully more people will show up Saturday.

I can't believe that a week from right this very minute, I'll be on the deck of Royal Caribbean's "Vision of the Sea"  probably participating in a life boat drill or whatever.  Both Barbara and Lynnette have called me today, they are excited too.  And they've both been on cruises before.  This will be my first. 

 I still haven't found any black casual, slip on shoes, that I can wear.  I have found some really cute ones with straps over the top of the foot but my instep is so high, I can barely fasten the strap. I have a pair of Skechers sitting over by the front door in a bag right now, that need to be returned for that very reason.

Well, I think I'll go tackle the front lawn and then turn the sprinkler on out there.  It's been several days since I've watered the front. Or maybe I'll make some popcorn.  Until next time...........Linda

I want the bike and the shirt with the flags on it...with the denim colar but I dont think it is big enough for me.  I like the Boyd's bears pins...I had a friend who collects those bears.

So you didn't manage to sell your son anything from your carport?! I've bought Skechers before but had the same problem as you, there's nothing worse than uncomfortable shoes! A week to go?! It's exciting isn't it? I know you're going to have a great time with your friends and really enjoy staying in that beautiful suite you showed us! Jeannette xx
