A poodle puppy is similar to a toddler in his desire to have his way! Anyway... we got home Friday afternoon to find out the community was having a yard sale!
I've been trying to pare down, and had some stuff for my own yard sale, but wasn't prepared... so Sat morning we quickly put out this meager pitiful array
It's just way too easy to shuffle things down to the basement, then forget about them. So here on display for all to see were our leftovers, our money spent and now discarded, our goods on the lawn for all to drive past and turn up their noses at.
Then again, I forgot we have a puppy... I'll let him tell you the rest of the story...
Milo here! (play theme song from Under Dog!! )
I woke up as usual, in my
Look what the cat dragged out!
Daddy and mama were putting "really good stuff" out on the grass!
I went shopping and could not believe my luck! They were giving away this really fine leather glove
Wow! I've never in all my 13 weeks of life, seen anything as fascinating as this thing!
I mean it really shakes! It has five long bits to chew on, smells like some critter, has fringe, and is just my size! I cannot believe they were getting rid of it!!!
My people are confusing (shakes doggie head) but ya gotta love 'em!
They mean well.
So while they stood around talking with other people, I met dogs walking by, showed them my glove and were they jealous! HA!
I visited with the girls a couple houses away, gave them a nibble just to show them I care, and after we stood out in that yard for years (two hours) we finally gave up and went back inside.
I didn't even chew up the glove to smithereens yet. But there's always tomorrow! I'll keep it with my rock collection for now.
|waving paw! Bye bye!|
LeeAnna here, what is it about the allure of yard sales?
I always think I'll sell stuff and recoup some money but as per usual we made "ones of dollars" 5 in fact. For the guitar (I still can't believe the husband sold it for that) oh and 10 cents for a basket. And we gave away a game.
A neighbor said she remembers someone driving up, the husband getting out to point to her stuff and the wife remaining in the car saying, " NO! Too ugly!" about the stuff Steph had just brought out of her house!!!
Will I never learn?
