Lazy Sunday

An American of the present day reading his Sunday newspaper in a state of lazy collapse is one of the most perfect symbols of the triumph of quantity over quality that the world has yet seen.
Irving Babbitt

CH and I are just hanging out this afternoon.  We are flipping between the NASCAR race and football games on t.v.  I occasionally get off the couch because I remember another item I want to add to the yard sale stuff.  If I do not get it immediately and put it with the other stuff I will forget about it in two minutes.  That short term memory loss thing can be a killer!

The community in which my mother-in-law lives is having a big joint yard sale next Saturday.  Because of deed restrictions, individuals may not hold their own sales.  What the residents have done is worked with a local church to hold the sale in their parking lot.  The church keeps the proceeds from the sale of the spaces and the residents get to unload their stuff.  Win-win situation.

My mother-in-law does not have any yard sale stuff so I am taking her place.  This sale should have pretty good traffic because it is on a main state road and the parking lot is large.  Plenty of easy parking for buyers and the church will also sell food.  Perfect!  I can sell things and eat!  What a combo!

If I remember to take my camera I will post whatever pics I have.  I was thinking that because her community is for people over 55 years of age, I doubt if there will be any kids or baby items.  Probably some good stuff, though, if the people haven't cleaned out their closets in a while.  We shall see!
