Last Summer’s Yard Sale

Would you believe me when I say there were children sitting in the back seat of this Jeep? There were 2 children in the back seat. This jeep was stuffed to the max and on the driver’s passenger side there was stuff coming out the window too! I have had a lot of yard sales but never in my life have I ever seen anything like this before.

These people were serious yard sale buyers!

My husband Doug, My good friend Roy and myself had a laugh when they showed up and even a bigger laugh after they left because they purchased carnival stuffed animals and it was funny to see them stuff them in their already stuffed to the max truck.

This was the last yard sale for the summer and we had a great day at Roy’s house.

Car Games to Pass the Time

My husband and I were out and about today and we were sitting in traffic and he announces “punch buggy orange no return “with a punch to the arm. Wow I said, “I didn’t see that buggy” and sure enough I look behind me and there was the orange bug convertible.

We got to talking about the car games we all have played with friends and family.

Who remembers playing PaDiddle, License Plate and Punch Buggy game? There are real rules and a point system for these games. If you haven’t played them look them up online and start playing. It’s a great pass time for the kids and the family if you are traveling by car going on vacation.

This brought back memories of my late childhood and from time to time my husband and I play the punch buggy game but there are very few old buggies around and the new buggies don’t count.

Be creative and have fun!

What was your favorite car game? Leave a comment and let me know.

The Evening Walk

It was a beautiful evening for a walk, so Doug and I were out walking with the dog(Kudah) and we took our usual route. There was another couple out walking with their dog. Kudah got excited when he saw the other dog and of course he wanted to meet and be friends with every dog but the other dog was wearing a muzzle. We didn’t let Kudah near the other dog just for safety sake.

We were on our way back home when this man standing on his balcony across the street said can I come down and see your dog? We said, it is okay. The man came down and started petting the dog and then he says I noticed when you walked by your dog was panting and noticed your dog was pulling. My husband tells the man (no name from North Carolina) that the dog only pulls when the wife is with us.

So then he tells us that he has a neurotic dog and he uses a pinch collar and he claims it is the best thing on the planet. I had a few choice thoughts running through my brain and of course I couldn’t expel my thoughts without being extremely rude. So we told the man, look he’s twelve and owns the side-walk. So, he goes on and on about how we should use a pinch collar or a holt would best benefit my dog. I said, if you think your dog needs a pinch collar, good for you but my dog doesn’t need such a device.

Well I told him he’s been through training and he’s worn a holt in the past and Kudah didn’t care for it and neither did we. First of all, when did this guy become the expert on my dog.  We left and went about our walk towards home. We came home with peeved looks on our faces, nothing like having your walk ruined by someone who thinks they are an expert in the dog world.
