I found a couple of cheering e-mails in my inbox!  :clap:

Yesterday evening (because I washed clothes most of the day today).

Found a cute country style decorated birdhouse it's about 3ft tall, looks really nice on the porch.

...and yet another vacuum, clogged hose on the bottom, quick cleanup and another one for lineup at the yard sale next month. :laugh:

Hope the birdhouse attracts cute guests!  :)

What kind of 8-track player? :o
I know, I know, it's just that I don't know what should be there. :GA:
Could put some awesome Jack quote in there.

A Realistic one with real walnut veneer or so it says :orly:.  It's going to the market tomorrow with a box of about 50 8 track tapes I found last year

I don't understand why someone got rid of it in the first place.

TI-1766 solar calculator, zelco bookmark dictionary, bag full of NIP phone jacks, cords, and phone line, a couple assorted knick knacks (for yard sale), new set of 600 tc egyptian cotton pillowcases.

Neighbor & his wife go to the auction house every week and buy cheap box lots, they pick out what they want and call me to come load the rest in the truck, saves them from carrying it all from the garage in back out to the front curb. The kid and I love "treasure hunting" and the rest gets bagged up for pickup or donated.

Also found a nice black & gold wooden rocker (seat needs recovered).

I Googled the word "ophthalmologist" and found that I was misspelling it!  :zoinks:

Yesterday.

2 cute chairs, toolbox with a couple of tools left in it, and a big hepa air cleaner that someone either installed a new $50 filter in or never turned it on once in the time they had it and wheeled it out to the curb  ??? (probably was a gift from the MIL :laugh:, anyways it works wonderful).
