DH and I had a wonderful time today traveling all over the backwoods, through some of the small mining towns north of Birmingham, going to several Estate Sales and a few Yard Sales, too. We got lost a few times, but we still had a lot of fun, and I think we made some good buys. We finally ended up getting lost in the general vicinity of one of our favorite Thrift Stores, so we decided to quit going around in circles and went to the store, instead. We had very good luck there, as we usually do. One item will cover a large part of our day’s expenses, so the rest of our day’s purchases will be all profit when they sell.
I really do need to find one of those adjustable canes with the prongs on the end. When you go to sales like this the houses tend to be crowded with stuff and people, and sometimes the walker is really in the way. I’m glad I have it, though, as I wouldn’t be able to enjoy so much walking without it.
So far people have been very kind and helpful. I haven’t yet hit anyone being rude, but at least I’m prepared for it, thanks to several posts and comments on Wheelie Catholic. Of course people in the South generally are more polite than other parts of the country, so I may not run into one of the rude jerks that others have discussed. I hope not, because I’m not sure how DH would handle it.
