Up Date: the photo above is a new baby we found today. The dog across from Amy's home, took this ones sibling and it made it to the road where I was so I brought it home. This is not the first time I have raised a squirrel. I raised and released 3 in the past. I said I would not do it again. I would let nature take its course. But I could not. This one took right to being fed. It is older than the others I have raised. So looks like I may be a mom again. They are so much fun, But the cats I have now do not like squirrel as they through nuts at them.
Thursday started city wide garage sale days for our town. This was fun, I went out on Thursday with my friend Laura. It started out with buy a news paper. Easy enough. I look in the garage sale adds. hum. problem # 1 we don't know the streets by name yet. lol. Thin I call Amy she said there was a map in there in the classified area with all the listings. COOL. Then problem #2 they are all for the next town over about 18 miles away. LOL . Now I start to say lets just find them by signs here and she said we can go to the other town. So we did. Amy calls after we are in the other town. She said why are you there. I told her that it was there city wide sale. She said no we have one too. Then she said look for a paper with an insert for a grocery store on the front. So I open this 2 page add. Sure enough there is the yard sales with a map for our town. We then laughed and said thats Eldon for ya. Hid the adds. We had a good time .
Then Friday and Saturday. Amy and I went shopping. I found lots of things for the grand kids. And a walk behind weed trimmer for hubby. After his bypass he can not swing the hand held gas one any more. One house I spent $4.00 and got the whole tray of flatware, lots of containers. mino bucket and metal cage to hold fish. fly hook making supply's, a few tools & photo album. Talk about bargain #1 I felt like I was back in St. Louis. I so miss the flea market in Wentzville. We bought and resold things there. I was into comics, records , fishing gear. And sold new socks and what knots. We had fun. We had to sleep over night on Saturday night to get a spot for Sunday. Then at 6:00 am the people poured in as you unpacked. They had a rule no set up till 6:00 am, So I set up in crates and boxed so it only took 10-15 minutes to get ready. We had a following on our comics and records. We also made allot of friends.
I hope we can get well enough to do things like this again. We also have a kettle korn business. Where we went to festivals and fairs. It was allot of work just to unload and set up. But what fun. some camping out and friend making was involved. Our daughter said she would help if we wanted to do it again.
Yesterday I was able to get a couple more cattle panels up they will fence in and hold up tomatoes and melons. We have had so much rain I have not been able to get allot done with the ground. to see more of what I am up to in the garden click here or on the link in my side colom for my other blogs.
