Unexpected Customer at my Garage Sale

Well, if it ain't KK the villian!
He seemed to want to be a customer. He begged, he scampered, he inspected.


He rushed across the driveway, past the girlie jeans and dresses - proving that he was not a she. Unlike the cat I once had. After six months of having Mink the he, we realized it was Mink the she.



Truth be told, not even KK was interested in my crap. He just wanted to get at my stash of peanuts and I wasn't in the mood to share.


I sold a bagless vacuum cleaner, a Homedics massager, a pair of almost-new Merrell hiking boots, 3 pairs of girlie jeans, and a Graco booster seat for $5 each and a pair of white girl's platform sandals for $2. I spent $12 on a 10 year old jade plant and 50 cents on two books: a Calvin & Hobbes comic and The BFG by Roald Dahl, both classics in my opinion. The proceeds went to sponsor my friends John and Lisa for their Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. They need to raise $1,800 each and inching closer and closer to their goal. Please consider donating one of your chai or coffee money to this noble cause.

ha ha! She mink!

I've stopped going to garage sales; I invariably pick things up, which we absolutely don't need! :-)
... but they are so much fun!

Manisha, u should have done this when I was there ;) We have a similar guest at home who used to jump and play inside the rooms. Has scared me quiet often by jumping on my shoulders.

Funny story. Love blogs like this. I enjoy reading and looking at the pretty pictures of stuff I can't make but would love to eat. What is the region from which these recipes derive, if not mixed? I was trying to make another Indexed Recipe Blog if not only for my own, err..., experiences (of overwhelming) frustrations.
