Al’s Going on Vacation!

Our Saturday garage sale was a little more successful than the one on Friday.  We got rid of a bunch of stuff and made about $150.

Afterwards, we did our normal garage sale routine of picking up signs, having lunch and then a short nap!

Squeaky had a good day yesterday.  I finally managed to get the  order and timing of the meds figured out so that she wasn’t nauseous.  She ate well and actually purred and “talked” to me for the first time in a while. 

After our nap, we worked around the house and yard,and Al got ready for his monthly trip to Tampa to do his remaining pest control customers.  I think he’s looking forward to going,  so that he can rest! 

He asked me to remove the old pictures from the memory card on his camera.  When I asked why, and where was he planning on going, he mentioned he may stop in Cedar Key on his way down to Tampa.  Poor me, I have to stay home and work :(  That’s okay, he just plans to take his time going to Tampa and do some sightseeing on the way down. He doesn’t have any accounts to do until tomorrow, so he’s going to enjoy his trip today.

We’ve been to Cedar Key many years ago, but at that time we were only interested in scuba diving and weren’t too impressed with the area. I think maybe we’d like it better now.  Anyway, he’ll go check it out,  and maybe we’ll make a visit there someday soon.

My plans for today are to clean the motor home up a bit.  We’ve been so busy with garage sales and sick cats that things have gotten to be a mess around here and I can’t stand it anymore.  After that, I plan to take it easy too!


  1. Overall it sounds like you have done very well with your sales. I never had much patience for garage sales so it was one and done for me. Your persistence will put more in the traveling fund! :)

  2. Sure glad to hear Saturday's sale went better. More stuff gone - yea!!And Squeaky is better. That's really good news. At least cleaning the motor home doesn't take hours and hours. So relax and enjoy.

  3. Glad you had a successful sale!
    Good news about Squeaky too!!!

  4. have a good week..and don't work too hard!..glad to hear that Squeaky is feeling a bit better!!

  5. I think some rest is in order! Now you can talk back to the cat. :)

  6. I bet a motor home cleans up a lot faster than a whole house!

    I'm looking forward to that day.

  7. Sounds like some much needed rest is in order. The escrow will close soon and you will be on your way.

  8. Glad to hear that Squeaky had a good day. I hope she continues to do well.

    We liked Cedar Key it is a nice little spot.

  9. We spent a week at Cedar Key this past December at a new campground -Cedar Key RV resort. It is out of town to the west and still in progress but they have all paved sites.

    I would say the town is still pretty quite but we enjoyed our visit.

  10. That's more like it, a successful garage sale. Not too many left, I guess.
