Local fishwrap's yard sale ads have diminished to nothing (to match the rest of
the paper) so we now use Craigslist. The problem is that since the ads are
free there's nothing to stop people changing their minds at the last minute and
deciding to sleep late or just not have the sale at all. This is maddening,
especially when we've driven 10 RT miles to get there. Our normal yardsale
circuit is 30-50 miles.
Would anybody REALLY blame me if I started heaving bricks through windows at
appropriate times? I'd only do it to people who really deserved it...
On balance it doesn't really matter, it's just the principle of the thing...
Last week's yard sale find:
I couldn't resist when he dropped the price from $5 to $3. This week I got a
pair of New Balances and a pair of Naturalizers for a buck each. I ALWAYS have
to have other people break in my shoes :-(

HAPPY frogs. You'd think that whoever made the thing would have put some sort
of signature on the bottom, but nooooooo.

Yeah, they're happy. But you have to wonder why.
Their leader looks a little slippery.

You clearly have no idea at all of how hard it is to remove wax from a frog.
