Yard selling

I’m not a big yard sale person. I don’t really get into the whole yard selling thing, going to or having them. I don’t have a good enough eye to spot a bargain and luckily I realize that, I don’t … Continue reading

My day

Y’all may have noticed posting as been kinda sparse today and comments didn’t get moderated until this afternoon. I’ve been busy. My in-laws and us had a joint yard sale at their place today as well as tomorrow and Saturday. … Continue reading

Concerning my ‘Yeah, gun control works‘ post earlier today, apparently I’m not the only one that thinks Modesto sucks. RDM73 submitted this video about the 12 worst places to live in the US. Modesto falls in at #10 between Reno … Continue reading

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow…..
