Tropical Storm Fay

Day 4...this not very nice, witchy storm named Fay has been swirling over our heads in Central Florida. She has dumped massive amounts of rain, and is still right over us...not sure how slow she's moving now, 'cause our satellite went out yesterday. All I know for sure is she is still here and wrecking havoc every where she goes! Snapped a couple pics this AM... how bout that 4 1/2 pounds of water??!! And that scale is under roof on my porch!! The lake has come up SO far, the ducks are threatening to leave home...maybe I should just go take a bubble bath...oh, pump went out this morning, so I have no water,except for the emergency jugs for drinking. Okay...that's it...I've had it! Going back to bed...wake me up when hurricane season ends!!! :o} *elaine*

Yard Sales are FINALLY better!

After a long hot summer...I know, it's not over yet...of terrible, horrible, worst I have ever seen yard sales, things are finally lookin' up! I'm talking sales that make you mourn the loss of the gas you just burned up to get there...sales where the stuff needed to be bagged and dragged to the curb, sales that look so bad as you drive by you don't even want to stop! What's up with that??!!?? Anyway, things were much better this weekend...Scored all the goodies in the pic for under $7 at 2 sales on my way to the grocery store. The Universal pottery pitcher & pie pan with the hollyhocks is too sweet!! Can never pass up old cookbooks, or vintage fabric...and don't you just love the dancing lady in the old photo?? She has already been scanned, reprinted and on her way to being a birthday card for a dear friend turning 50 this old photos...instant ancestors, anyone?? So. a month & a half between posts this time...I think I'm getting worse instead of better! It's been a long hot summer, and now we're bracing for Hurricane Fay...been there, done that...don't need any damn hurricanes!! We're praying she dies out before she gets to us, but things look a little iffy on that score. Hope Ya'll have had a good summer...have a happy Sunday...see ya again soon! elaine
