Lon, brother-in-law Larry, and cousin Dave went fishin'! Yeah. So I spent the day looking for living room furniture. There are certainly very few places to buy furniture around here. Lon said that our current couch, and two recliners, and coffee table do not match, and it makes him feel like we decorated from Goodwill. How dare he insult my beloved Goodwill?! Alec and I are very offended. However, my living room furniture pieces do need to be updated. I tried to go to Smulekoffs this morning, but there was the Bohemia Farmers' Market going on and there wasn't any place to park, so I left.
Talked to Daniel last night and he said that Cate was working some booth at the Hiawatha Hog Wild Days for Kennedy Band. I will have to tell her that friend Sandy R. from Georgia, and I started that years ago.
Around l981, Sandy and I decided to open a second-hand clothing shop in Hiawatha, called SECOND HAND ROSE. To generate publicity for our shop, about every six months we started renting out tables and having flea markets in our parking lot outside our store. We would go around to all the other businesses and get donations (leather wallets from Farmers State Bank) and anything that each store sold, and then we would have drawings for those prizes. After the third flea market, Sandy and her family were moving to Georgia, so we closed our little shop. But the Hiawatha Council asked if they could take over our idea and run with it. They started having Fun Days and it took off from there.
I was just watching a horror movie on TV called LET ME COME IN. Just about that time, some goofy little bird kept pecking at my living room window and sitting on the window sill looking in at a plant I have setting in front of the window. He dive-bombed the window and bounced back off it several times. He seemed determined to get past that darn glass to get in.The bird-brained little guy must have thought he could get to the "greenery" and he stayed by the window for a long time. I finally got my camera and tried to film him trying to "come in". Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to put the video on the blog. I'm lucky to get a couple of pictures put on here. Hmmmm.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL
