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.
If you are a twitter type and you're not already following Wendy you should because she is one of the funniest people ever and also she stays up really late. @WendyLiebman
