Thrift store Cock Soup for me? No thanks I'm full.

After being housebound for the last two days I spent the day at 4 different thrifts, Target and a grocery store. I hope it was just an off day, but all 4 thifts were disappointing in the quality of their junk. Don't get me wrong, I didn't go home empty-handed. Just that nothing was really great.

Here are a few of the things I did not buy today:


A $1 Souvenir spoon rest depicting the Pennsylvania Turnpike (it says Pennsylvania Turnpike in red in the center). It had been broken and glued back together. Who goes on vacation to the Pennsylvania Turnpike anyway.

I also did not buy an inspirational Never Give Up poster - depicting a bird swallowing a frog but the frog is choking the chicken...I mean bird. I think it was $1 too.



I did not buy this gorgeous LL Bean fleece jacket circa 1988. Gorgeous isn't it?? I had the exact thing back in the 80's. I figured I already had the glory of having that jacket once, I'll let someone else buy it and enjoy the wonderfulness of it. I think I had to get rid of mine when a mouse also enjoyed the comfort of it and ate it.






And lastly, no cock soup for me. Thinking back I should have bought it and mailed it anonymously to my cock loving neighbor. She has a rooster as a pet and I really would like her to make cock soup. My theory is that you either have to be very ignorant or inconsiderate to have a rooster as a pet in a residential neighborhood.
