Going, Going, Gone - FINALLY
Ok! Ok! I'll stop with the graveyard pictures - those of course were taken at Dolls' Run Cemetary out in Core . I have to say it's one of my favorites and I could spend a few hours taking pictures and hanging about. Anyhoo, David finally decided to put the Stinkin Hot Tub in the local bulletin paper the other day. It had turned into one of those situations where everyone you tell wants it, they're going to come get it, etc... and then no one actually does anything about it. Wiith fall on the way we couldn't wait any longer as we were afraid once it started getting cold we would be stuck with it. And yes, we did give it away as we'd never run it and quite honestly we just wanted it gone. So David puts the ad in Monday, it runs on Wednesday and yesterday the phone started ringing at 7:30 am. David gave it to caller #1 since he also said he would come get that night. David came home to 12 messages on the answering machine and they still kept calling - Jackson (who is amusing himself by keeping track) counted 19 phone calls in one day. And this was the first day. The guy did come as promised and loaded it up with the help of a friend and Jackson. Amazing that after offering it around all summer it's gone in one day. Of course we all know now that it's gone EVERYONE will suddenly decide they wanted it after all - I suppose it's like that guy you dump, they don't look attractive until someone else gets him. And in between the phone calls Poor Pearline had diarherra yesterday, David suspects she found an alternate food source in the woods which might have been comprised of Poo so it made the day interesting. Ray and Jean are due in later today, David is working half a day and then will be home to greet them around 1pm. I have to finish getting the guest rooms ready - I am really looking foward to this weekend.
