My Favorite Yard Sale

There is a woman in her 80's who lives near our house that has a yard sale every weekend all summer.

She had been collecting things for years, and planned to open an antiques/collectibles shop with her husband. He was hit by a car and died while crossing the street 10 years ago, so they never opened the shop.

Every weekend she sells off the stock that was supposed to go into her store. Her stuff is way better than a normal yardsale, and she is fun to talk to and has a cute cat with double wide paws. Last year, we got a bunch of great books, old magazines, and the Eva Gabor Wig.

She opened up last weekend. I'm excited she is doing this again this year!

It is funny what gets added to or replaces that summertime surge of charged lethargy. It used to be the ice cream truck, then later the song "Summertime" and now it is yard sales.

I think my age is showing.
