Never Again!

It was a community yard sale, and LaVale was swarming with  bargain hunters.  For once, I wasn't one of them.  This time I was offering the bargains.


Every year I vow to never have another yard sale ~ but then every year I eat my words and have one.  
What is wrong with me!?


Rissi was excited because she was selling ice cold water.


Jackie's Davy Allison stand-up found a home for $5.


Cars were lined out onto the street.


There were donuts, fresh fruit (and the best watermelon ever) and ice cold water.  


Jake pauses to read a book.


and Rissie skinned her knee.


Mom and daughter share pretty purple toes...


Rissi walks sideways after her fall... 
so she doesn't hurt her knee.  It was actually cute to watch. 


Jake spends time with his dad...


... and his Pop pop


And just hours later...  our inventory had almost vanished!
A pretty productive day...  yard-sale-wise.

But a lot of work!!

Never again!


Dear Diary,


Let me tell you about Mutley.  He's a Shitzu and Mom says he's a sweetheart.  I don't know where she gets that.  When we go past his house during our walk every night, he charges to the fence with all his might just to tell me a few pretty nasty things about myself.   Now I just ignore the loser.  Well...  until today.  Mom took me outside to see what was going on with all the people that were in front of our house when a lady walked up to where we were standing and low and behold, Mutley was walking on a leash just like me!  'You're on my turf now, big boy!' I gnarled as I lunged at him.  Mom yanked me back, drug me into the house and said that I was bad and didn't know how to act around other dogs.  Whatever.  Gracie.
