A Sweet Sale


Sometime early Saturday morning (2:38 am), my friend Wendy sent me an emergency email. Sometime later Saturday morning (4:14 am), I read it. Wendy was having a yard sale and her two stepsons had just released their Star Wars collection to be included in the sale. This was serious.

Later that morning (9:10 am), I got in the station wagon armed with a travel mug of coffee. I sped across the valley to Wendy and her yard. She informed me that I had just missed a man with one leg who purchased one bedroom slipper. This was a hot sale with an interesting crowd.

Wendy had set aside the box packed with Star Wars goodness just for me. I was thrilled. When Mr. Wendy came out of the house with the box (9:40 am), it was a Hallelujah Chorus moment. Hanukkah for Bob? Hello. Advent for Bob? Yes. Stocking-stuffers for Bob? Done. Under the tree items for Bob? High five.

I left (10:10 am) with a car-load of magic. In exchange, Wendy had $25.00 bucks and more space in the guestroom closet. It was a morning filled with win. And double win for whomever ended up with that last DVD.

  6. You are precious. I love knowing that my stepson's toys found the perfect home. I have to confess something: Even though they're teenagers, the boys kept a few. I guess it's hard to part with Star Wars. xowendy ps: I'll pay Karen a quarter to take the LOTD video.

    Or maybe the guy who bought the one slipper?

    Nah.
