Garage Sale - 2008
Sherwood Acres had its annual garage sale yesterday. It certainly wasn't like in the old days when a person could hardly drive up and down the streets because of so many parked cars. But despite the chill in the air and the threat of rain, we did have one for most of the day. We had egg salad sandwiches for lunch. That was what we always ate at Grandma Watson's sales. Her sales were always social events. This year Lily kept busy by coloring, blowing bubbles and greeting the customers. She always said bye when they tried to slip out unnoticed without buying anything. Charlie was just bored. It is no fun at a garage sale if you can't be running around a bit.
At the end of our sales day, we went to the Goodwill drop off and gave away most of the unsold items.
