Memorable Automobiles from The Past:
(I do wonder if that ladder is legal???) LOL I received this picture from Evelyn. Don has been looking for another RV. I agree he should get this one from 1958!!

Yard sales have been our entertainment as we RV'd full time for 22 years. For so many years our reading was paperbacks and yard sales were mostly our supply ‘depot.’ To be honest some of my most prized clothes came from yard sales. The most I have ever paid for a new shirt is $12. Yard sales they are usually 50 cents.
Once at a yard sale I looked at a gentleman’s shirts for sale and saw the tags at $8. I said, “$8 is pretty high for a yard sale.”
He replied, “I paid $92 for that shirt you are looking at.”
I bought it. LOL I had NEVER had an expensive shirt. I have enjoyed it and it is nice.
We were at a yard sale in Florida during the time e-mails were just beginning to be used. I heard a lady talking about office e-mails. She had two big bosses at her job. One she liked and one she could not stand. She meant to send one to the good guy complaining about the bad guy, mistakenly sent the e-mail to both! OUCH
In West Virginia we were walking up to a yard sale and a lady had a stroke while driving by. She went by us in the yard and plowed into the tables. One lady was injured enough to require a hospital.
A man asked in Vermont (upon seeing our car tag), “You drove up from Florida to go to yard sales?”
In Bangor, Maine I spied a Hearing aid still in the original package for 50 cents, batteries included. It worked as well as my VA hearing aids, it became my back up.
BUT… way back in the HILLS of Maine, we lucked up on a sale. I saw the first pince-nez eye glasses I had ever
seen. I just had to have them. The man was asking fifty cents, I didn’t even try to get them cheaper, LOL. They are in the original case with the Doctor’s name on them. The bridge is 10K Gold. They are interesting. I have held them for a few years now. They are only a reminder of Maine and the wonderful folks there.
PS: I think pince-nez glasses were reading glasses. These seem to be very weak magnification.
