It's been too stinking hot to sleep here for the past week, so I was not really surprised to find myself up at 2:30am. But what to do? Well we ripped off a couple of DVD reviews, and I had a beer or 5. With daylight creeping up on us I had one of those 'Eureka' moments! Lets have a yard sale.
We have lots of junk, oops, good stuff, that someone else would love to own. So as the sun was rising I started hauling 'good stuff' outside. 16 typewriters, a couple of laptops, a Commodore 64 (with external diskette drive), etc, etc.
Jan and I relocated to the great outdoors around 7:30am, put the tunes on, and sat back to watch the fun. Around 10am we had some old lady who probably is suffering from dementia wander through. She was looking for some other yard sale! And she showed scant interest in laptops or typewriters.
Around 11:30 I was getting a little concerned, low on beer, low on cigarettes, it was time to call it a day. So we packed all the good stuff back inside and took a nap. In total we made exactly $0, and got to meet one geriatric lady. I now know why I don't do yard sales more often.
