YoooHooo! The yard sale is over! With stunning results. After taking last year off from the yard sale juggernaut we prepared to jump back in this year as previously posted. Our well laid strategies paid off. The weather’s been soooooo bad this spring that yard sales are off to a slow start. I eyeballed our calendar (work, events, fun) and passed judgement that the 28th had to be the day or we’d wait till June. The weather gods smiled upon us with an absolutely perfect day. The customers were pleasant, all the items (our junk) sold briskly and we were packed up and having lunch by two p.m.
Friend Doug came by to entertain and to attempt to sell his Fender. He didn’t sell the guitar, but the serenading was appreciated.
A success all the way round!
Then in the evening friends Mollie and Bill sped us up to rural Wisconsin where we enjoyed a pleasant meal in a building of Historical Landmark status. The scenery on the way was very Wisconsin spring like. Beautiful rolling hills and so many shade of green! It was a real treat just to sit back and relax with a fun ride and good conversation.
Mollie and Bill had discovered the restaurant on the previous weekend’s outing to have some rest time and an adventure.
We always think of going north for an adventure. I know it’s funny to think of Wisconsin as “exotic” or “different” but it does seem that when you cross the state line the terrain changes and things are just , well, different. Tim did have a little cheese with his dinner just to pay homage to the state.
Then back home after a busy day.
And so after all the yard sale did turn out just fine, like Tim said it would. He’s always right about these things.
