Today Is Day 62 of the Papa’s Walk Challenge.
There were three yard sales in progress along my walking route today. I was reminded that Papa loved bargains and enjoyed helping my family host a “garage sale” each year. I stopped at each sale to see what treasures they held.
One had a beautiful, leather-bound volume of the complete works of William Shakespeare. Did you know that the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) offers the complete works of Shakespeare online for free here: http://shakespeare.mit.edu/?
Another yard sale had a variety of camping equipment and at least 10 coolers of various shapes and sizes. I wondered if the owners had given up on camping in the wilderness in favor of backyard campouts. Families need a lot less gear to have fun according to this article with 14 ideas for camping out in your backyard.
At the final yard sale the pickings were sparse, but I was amused by a toddler girl who had found some pink, sheer lingerie and was holding it aloft, twirling about on the lawn. So. Darn. Cute. 🙂
