|Bill trying to not get run over by a lady in her go cart|
Wow, was that ever a negative posting I did yesterday? I do have to offset that with something either beautiful or funny. I think I'll go with funny today.
This morning Bill and I traveled up Rt. 1 to the old historic town of Milford, Delaware. Actually, I think all of the towns of Delaware are "old historic towns." We don't have many new towns. In fact, I can't think of one. Well, anyway so we head on up to Milford to check out the Salvation Army thrift store that our friend Bob C. has been telling us about. Bill and I like to troll thrift stores on Saturday mornings so we thought we would see if the Milford Salvation Army thrift store was worthy enough to be added to our list.
Well, the short answer is "no." It's great for clothing. We saw a lot of Hispanic families in there this morning replenishing their children's wardrobes. By the way, ever notice how Hispanic children never scream or cry like our little American white and black children. Apparently whining children is a uniquely American phenomena. Either the Hispanic children are naturally well behaved or their parents are careful with their children when out in public. I think the latter is the reason. Too many American parents take leave of their parental responsibilities once they're out in public. I'm not condemning, just stating my experience. It is the rare parent who has well behaved children in public. Uh oh, there I go being negative again.
This thrift store had a lot of "stuff" and it WAS clean but did have that Salvation Army musty smell. Maybe the smell was from all those used clothes hanging on the racks. I doubt that the Army had their washers working overtime cleaning them.
I did manage to find a few things (like I need anything else). One was one of those jester porcelain masks that I am so fond of. I got that baby for a couple bucks. That will go with my collection on my bedroom wall. The other thing I found was two books called "Your Story, A Guided Interview Through Your Personal & Family History." These are blank books with questions about your personal history. How cool! This is a good start to writing my autobiography which I've been planning on doing for the last forty years. Bout time I started don't you think? They only cost $1.99 each so I got one for me and one for Bill. He won't fill it out so I'll just ask him questions and fill it out for him. Very cool.
So you're probably wondering where is the funny part to this posting? Check out the picture on the top. That's Bill being tailgated by a Jabba the Hut woman on her go cart. Oh how that drives Bill crazy when he goes to Walmart and he has to dodge all the fatties on their wheelies. I just had to take this picture for the record. Every time Bill moved she was just inches behind him. I love it! Bill, not so much.
More good stuff tomorrow. I'll try to keep my negative blog postings down to no more than one a week. I just had to post my screed yesterday to get it out of my system. If I keep that stuff bottled up in me it just makes me depressed and not wanting to do anything. There is a lot more to life than my little minor issues. For instance, we just had another house in our development go up for a sherif's sale. There are more lives ruined, so sad.
