My Kingdom For a Piece of Cheese

Further evidence was discovered this morning that validates my theory that things happen in three’s. Last year, three garage sales – one, two, three…$1200 for our trip to France. Last year, one, two, three days of good weather for the aforementioned sales.

I fear this season’s trend….one sale, one crappy weather day and lower than usual sales. On the plus side we did manage to off load a microwave, rare at any garage sale, and loads of lower value bric-a-brac items. However, the higher ticket, larger space consuming pieces stubbornly remain.

Our take of $170 barely covers one piece of cheese for CJ! Although, now that she has the straight bear, perhaps she won’t be so easily persuaded by cute French cheesemongers!

I hope next week’s long range forecast is accurate – twice as hot, half the wind and, please Lord, four times the customers!

At this rate we will be nibbling Kraft cheese slices. Luckily, I think we can pair them with really cheap wine.
