- Went to the bank to get Mom some thrifting money for the week
- Drove through the car wash to wash the six pounds of bird doody that was all over it
- Dropped The Breadman off for a haircut
- Ran into a grocery store next door to "admire" the Eclairs and may or not have purchased three
- Stopped at the bread thrift store for duck bread
- Ran into the Salvation Army where I left in utter disgust at the lack of merchandise
- Stopped at the park for PB&J sandwiches, pretzels and string cheese packed by Moi
- Possibly ate those eclairs we did or did not buy
- Drove out to show The Breadman a lake he didn't know existed even though he drove within 1/4 mile of it every day for nearly ten years (Don't ask)
- Drove up "Dead Horse Mountain" (actual name of street on street sign) to cruise million dollar homes on the golf course
- Stopped at Neighborhood Market for a "few" things, left with a few things for $66.00.
- Went to cemetery to feed the goofy geese that apparently do not like Wonder Bread
That's when he looked confused. "What's this? " he said.
"You said you just paid for it, " I said, starting to get a little PO'ed at the whole situation.
That's when his wife realized what was happening, laughed and said, "Not the box! The table! We bought the table!"
He handed me back the box, picked up his table and left, still confused. I'm not sure he really did ever figure out what was going on. He wanted his table and I wanted that box of linens. I asked the boys if I looked stupid and they both said they thought that the couple had bought the box of linens. The Bean said, "I thought now why would be want a bunch of dishcloths like Mom would want?" Hey!
So, what did I find in the box once I realized I could dig in it after all? *My computer is supposed to automatically flip my photos upright, but for some reason tonight it isn't doing it. When I do get them flipped, they flip twice and are upside down. So, sorry for the sideways photos.***
Every day (except Saturday) tea towels with Native Americans on them. I haven't thoroughly checked these out to see if they are Politically Incorrect too. I think they are respectful - no Redman or "Me Smokum Peace Pipe".
I left a ton of other tea towels and things, but I got the really good stuff. I never used to like linens, now I think I am obsessed.
Speaking of which...there is a sale tomorrow at a house where the lady collects everything, plus she buys at auctions to resell too. I struck up a conversation with her one day at a sale and she said she would stockpile tablecloths for me and have them at the next sale. WooHoo - let's hope she didn't forget me! Cross your fingers!
