Our garage sale yesterday was pretty much a waste of time. We made a whopping $53. It may have had something to do with Thanksgiving next week. We did sell a few winter jackets and some more Christmas stuff. I got told that I had my Christmas trees were priced too high because you could get them at the Dollar Store cheaper! I told her maybe she should head over to the Dollar Store before they sold out! I may have to reduce the prices next week. I realized I miscalculated…we only have two more Saturdays before we head south. Not much time and a lot more stuff!
On the way home Al noticed a lot of people raking the pine straw from their yards and since we need some for landscape mulch, he decided to get the truck and see what he could find. He did pretty well, don’t you think?
The moon is full so I went out and tried to get a few more shots. With the camera zoomed as much as it is, even the beating of your heart causes the camera to shake enough to completely miss the moon. I tried to set up my tri-pod but found it is missing a piece and I had nothing to attach it to the camera. I have no idea where the piece might be.
Here are a few of the better shots. At this zoom, it was easy.
At this zoom, it was very difficult. I have a little more zoom left and can get close enough that I can’t even get the entire moon in the picture. Unfortunately, I can’t hold still enough for full zoom.
A couple of leafless pecan trees.
Here are a couple pictures of the motor home dash cover we bought a few weeks back. I promised to post some pictures, but kept forgetting to take them. You are supposed to cut holes for the vents and the computer table, but I haven’t done it yet. I’m afraid I’ll screw it up, so I’ve left it alone for now. The only time I need the vent covers cut is if we’re using the defrost while driving, or we could just move the cover back a little. The computer desk could also be pulled out without cutting the cover. We mainly wanted it to protect the dash from kitty claws, so I’m okay with it like it is…for now at least.
You can see, it fits pretty well.
You can see where the vents are.
Here you can see the computer desk.
It probably would lay down a little better if I cut out the desk. I probably will get Al to do it at some point. He’s a little neater than me with that kind of stuff.
Saturday was another perfect fall day. It was close to 80, clear skies and no wind. More of the same for the next few days :)
Today will be our trip to St Marks for Al’s Geezer National Park pass, so that’s the plan. Then when he gets home, he plans to watch the Bucs play football.
Oh, I forgot to mention. Al loved his “new” E-reader. He was really happy to see he got one for his birthday. I almost felt a little guilty :) Then I decided, to just let him stay happy and not tell him, that he actually opened my old E-reader. Then he turned it on and noticed the books were the books I had already gotten. The jig was up and he got a good laugh out of it. We’ll get him one before we head to Tampa, and hopefully we’ll find a good price on Black Friday.
