30 Miles With Plenty Of Piles!

The cat didn't even know these were still a thing until they wanted to go at that other wing. Then he got roped in. Or rather Pat did with an out and about spin. I stayed in bed and avoided that dread.

Don't be squirrely.
Get up early.
Skip your meal.
You have to get that deal.

The good won't last.
Be a thing of the past.
Early bird gets the whatever.
Worms are even more clever.

Whelmed you aren't able.
That is just a fable.
Push, shove and grab.
A deal you may nab.

You have to be quick.
That's the trick.
Get a deal by the ton.
Don't walk, run!

Get to the next table.
Push the others if able.
If not crawl to it.
You need to get that shit.

So hit the trail.
Get to each yard sale.
Even if they are on the street,
And the yard part is left in defeat.

Can't go slow.
There is 30 miles to go.
They are so long,
You'll sing a happy song.

Finding that deal.
Touch and feel.
Know it's just right.
Buy it just for spite.

Drive, stop and....crash.
Isn't it a bash?
Idiots pulling off each way.
A deal could be on display.

Pffft first and last time for that. Sure did not impress the cat. Nuts were about every which way and mostly crap was on display. But oh, let's get the deal. It's a deal that is real. 30 miles of them too. Whoops, after driving more like 1 or 2. Maybe even half a mile. Ever turn such a yard sale dial? If not you may want to stick with taking a pass. Trust my little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  4. My neighbor always had a yard sale almost every-weekend. They were junk people, like living next door to Sanford and Son.

  6. They say one man's junk is another man's jewels, but when it comes to most garage sales, one man's junk is just... junk.

  10. I used to frequent yard sales in my own town and several surrounding towns, too. Nowadays, it seems like I'm always too busy to stop when I spot one.

    2. No, but there's one librarian in particular at one of the libraries with whom I certainly wouldn't mind working.

  11. Garage sales once in a while
    Are worth driving an extra mile
    But mostly filled with junk
    Leaving me in a dizzy funk

  12. They are good if you are in college and need cheap furniture or household goods. Otherwise, it's crazy to me.

  14. We're not yard sale people. We don't even like to have one and usually just donate everything to Goodwill.

  15. Yard sales aren't like they used to be. People want premium prices for their crap now.

  19. I loved them when my girls were small and we'd snap up clothes for them real cheap. Now, I am trying to get rid of my own junk, I don't need to bring somebody else's back into my home.

  21. I like to find a good deal
    To me, that's a steal.
    If I can get something for more than 1/2 price
    I'll turn on the movie Babe and sing with the mice
