Dog Days in Ardmore, AL
A small portion!
I met Janet and Nick bright and early Saturday morning at Dog Days in Ardmore. It is a HUGE garage sale:) We wandered around for a while and bought a few things. Janet scored some great decanters and some old canning jars. I bought a pair of suitcases but my negotiating skills were not as good as Nick's. I had to pay the full asking price.
My new suitcases:)
John Deere Tractor
There was tons of stuff! We decided it was over-priced (meaning we weren't paying that much) or it was junk. Good thing one man's junk is another man's treasure. There were even kittens and puppies for sale - that did not come home with us! We did see a John Deere Tractor - just like the one Doug had has in my storage. The price - $200 and it didn't even have the wagon. There was also a Farmer's Market and we came home with fresh peaches, tomatoes and cantalope. Yum!!!
After Dog Days, we went to see Janet and Nick's house with a stop for Mexican food. No progress this week but it is supposed to be finished the end of August. Sun was in the wrong place but they are standing in their future garage.
Beginning my new life as a "sixty and single" woman started with a "Grand Adventure" of a five month road trip. Included in my travels were a stop in the Grand Canyon, two months in Berkeley, CA, and a ferry ride to Juneau, AK. After my two month Alaskan adventure, I returned on the ferry and visited several more national parks before relocating to Franklin, TN. (its great to have children in fun places) I spent the summer of 2012 working in Yellowstone National Park at Fishing Bridge General Store. Wanderlust has struck!!! I have purchased a Casita 17' Spirit Deluxe travel trailer . . . the adventure continues.
