    That friend does sound like a real character! Reminds me of my son's doctor's dad, in a vague sense.
    In a more real sense, the folks who have those garage sales do exist.
    There are places like that still around here, I'm thinking of a couple I knew in Surprise, The Masons. Yes, that's the name of the town. Met them through an f.o.a.f (friend of a friend). Shocked to find out that Kathy was from -DING DING- Derry- and her husband, no real surprise here, Salem Ma. I could listen the stories forever, just to hear them talk. Kath's words had the quick, clipped quality of a Derry girl: "oh my god, I gotta wirk wicked Layt" ... He was cheerful all the time, throwing in colloquialisms like "holy mackerel" for me, followed by a true but inevitably bizarre story about how in the wee hours of the morning, a viscous javelina chased him for like the equivalent of four houses down. The image of this guy hightailin it for dear life to escape this javelina! :rofl: The friendship was one of those that you lose when you relocate, decide its best to move on. He had a garage filled with junk, ya needed something, they had it. garage sale every weekend and he would often build bikes fir the local kids. Thanks for sharing Muskie.

    Hope you have some luck finding them (and other goodies). Always used to go to thrift stores and straight to the book
    section and then leave. Then I smartened up and started to look around. Have founds some great stuff in those stores.
    Always looking for candle containers to fill. Found some nice ones the last time I was there, they just needed a good
    washing out and they were ready to fill. Haven't been to a thrift store in a long time, it is on my 'I want to' list. There
    are so many in this city just waiting for me .... :wink:
