Rain is a good thing - except on Saturdays
I like it when it rains, except when it has to rain on a Saturday morning, which it did yesterday. It pretty much kills the yardsales around here (the concept of having a yardsale in a garage and calling it a garage sale hasn't reached Southern Maryland yet). But I was able to get my shopping fix satisfied due to an "indoor yardsale" at a firehouse (heaven forbid they call it a garage sale). Here was my favorite seller of the day. When you asked her how much anything was, her answer was always "a quarter". For the heck of it I asked her how much the tv was - not because I wanted it I told her, it was because I wanted to hear her say something different ($5). She was fun. I bought several quarter items from her.
And on my way home, I rescued this guy who was going to be crossing the road. I walked him over to the other side (which you are supposed to do) and then saw some steep terrain. I worried that he may flip over so I took him down the steep drop-off and am thankful I didn't break my leg climbing out of there. Then this morning I had to go somewhere and saved a second turtle. I wish they would stop trying to cross the road.
