Can you believe it's
time for
And look where
our Polaris is parked.
Dad wouldn't even let
Java have the keys.
Mom has them,
and she's keeping them.

Mom is too busy to
drive us around.
She is preparing for the
Memorial Day Flea Market
at the
Sylvatus Ruritan Club.
Usually she has a lot of
primitives and collectibles,
but this year she didn't get
to any auctions or farm sales so

What a mess!!
5 generations of our family
have lived here and left
what they didn't want when they moved.

And then there are these steps
up to the scary part
where birds used to nest
when Mom was a little girl.
We're telling you one of her secrets-
Our Mom is afraid of birds,
especially dead ones!!
How crazy is that.

Dad, our Prince Charming,
checked it out for Mom
and proclaimed it bird free
so she runs up there really quickly,
grabs something and
comes back down.
We'd like to be able to help her,
but she does it while we are napping.
We'd show those birds who's boss!!
When Dad got home from work yesterday,
one look at our porch made him want to disco.
Mom had found a corner of 1970's stuff.
It made her laugh,
but she didn't get a photo of it.
This tub is some of the things she's
making decisions on.
We think the eyes should go
in the trash, don't you?

Have a Wonderful Wheely Wednesday,
Lilly, Piper, Carrleigh and Java

Mom says our attic looks like your granary and she can't throw much away because dad rescues it and puts it right back!
Our mom doesn't like dead birds either - she doesn't like to find any dead animals. It really upsets her!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

It is so hard to part with the old. And just when you get rid of it, that's when you figure out you really needed it.

Happy rummaging.

Woos, the OP Pack
