This turned into a very busy day! What else is new?!
Michelle and I started the day on the garage sale trail. There weren’t too many signs out today, but we were able to find several good ones and some not so good.
In between finding the sales we made a stop at Loveland High School to take some paperwork to Joshua. He is a very good looking young man who looked even better today walking toward the car. He was wearing a green Oregon Ducks t-shirt. Go, Ducks!
We drove a few miles to Berthoud where there is a small Habitat for Humanity thrift store. We had been to it about a year ago and thought they had a good store. Today we found several good deals, including a Longaberger basket for $4. If you know anything about those baskets, you know that it was a good deal. In their catalog, nothing is under $50.
On the way back to Loveland, we stopped at Wendy’s for lunch before going to Ft. Collins for some mall shopping. Connor’s 16th birthday is less than a week away. We plan to have a party for him this weekend before Willie Nelson takes us “on the road again.”
At 4:00 we went Connor’s JV football game. They played well, but didn’t win. It was easy to locate his No. 59 because he played center for the first half of the game. When he switched to defense for the second half I had more of a problem keeping track of him.
Joshua is on the varsity team so he wasn’t suited up for the game, but I located him quite easily. He was helping with the “chains” and he was the only one around who was wearing a green Oregon Ducks t-shirt! I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. Go, Ducks!
