Garage Sale

Today and Tomorrow
Grandmother and I are having a garage sale today and tomorrow. We’ve been working the past couple of weeks to get our stuff organized for this sale. Since it will be cool today, most of what we have will be inside our little “barn”.

So if you are in the area today, drop by and say hello. We’ll enjoy your visit and you do not have to buy anything.

I saw an interesting sign at an old general store a few months ago. It said, “We buy junk, and we sell antiques.” Well, if I had to put up a sign at our garage sale, it might go like this, “We bought stuff we thought we needed, and sell junk at bargain prices.”

Earlier This Week 
Just I spend a few days in Knoxville last week with my Dad and Sister. I’ve been going down when I can to give Mary a little rest. One afternoon while I was there we drove up to Gatlinburg and into the edge of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Here’s a few pictures…

Thanksgiving is Around the Corner
Just wanted to mention to all our family that Turkey Days will be here soon. We’re planning for the big event at our home on Thanksgiving Day. I can almost smell the turkey and taste the dressing when I think about it. Get Ready, you all!

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
It’s amazing how much stuff you accumulate over time. If fact we have a new rule at our home these days: we can’t bring anything home (new or used) unless there is a place to put it. Usually that means we have to get rid of something.

Quote of the Day
You cannot do a kindness too soon,
for you never know how soon it will be too late. 
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Joke of the Day

A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the jar.

During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone.

The little girl said, 'Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle.'
