Got the pool up this weekend!  Just lounging around.  Deceided to quit the junk business.  My back has been hurting for a month. Too much lifting.  I will still do some junking and Canton, just for me.    hugs  judy

Roadside Save

Driving thru my regular g- sale route when I spied these old  wood columns. It was a narrow side street and lots of heavy things in this pile A lady smiled when she saw me  wrangle one of these into this truck.  .  I got this one but need some stronger arms to help with the rest. The  end caps are their too.  Poor Mr. "Shabby Junk" will get some exercise soon to retreive these.  No good finds except these today.    hugs....    judy

Things are heating up 80's and 90's this weekend.  Getting my tan on for FLorida in a few weeks!!!!    judy

White Wednesday

Went to Italy a few years ago.  Took our pic in front of the famous Trevi Fountain.  Magical. Wish I  was there. Day dreaming.

Light Show

Had a light show and rain all is good.   Lots of lightning bolts but could not catch on film. Is the weather getting weirder or what??   Pretty day ahead!    judy

Bummer, their was an old wood wall phone 15$!! Gone!   Cool dressform with antique hat. Gone! This is all I could find left that was any good.
