Yardsale Liquor and Jesus in the Free Pile

Here's a few pics of stuff that I saw when out yardsaling last Saturday. I came across some yardsale liquor (the small bottle of banana schnapps in the center) and I did not buy it - don't get me wrong, I will buy and drink yardsale liquor but banana schnapps didn't sound appetizing. Plus even tho it wasn't marked, the seller told me high prices on some of the other things on her table so didn't bother to ask how much it was.

And at the estate sale, there was a trailer full of free scrap wood and such and there was Jesus laying there in the free pile (it looked like it originally was in two sided frame and was broken.)

My vacay update will have to wait. I gotta get my butt in gear and do some ebay auctions before the ebay listing promo ends Sept. 7. So watch for vacay update after that.

Well I think it's time for a new car. My car died on me at Food Lion. Poof - just like that the battery died for no apparent reason. I got it jumped and got home before my cold food got warm. Stocked up on some 16 oz packages Frigo mozzarella cheese balls for $2.25 each - apparently they are being discontinued at that store so they were half price. Will stop at some other Food Lions tomorrow and see if I can find more. I can freeze it.

I watched and studied some Youtube videos on how to jump start a car so, knock on wood, I should be fine.

The title of this post is the name of my next album.

And that's a lot of cheese. You better keep an eye out for some fiber on markdown. :)

ZDub - I just bought a few packages of cheese (3), not 16. Although I do love cheese, not sure if I would have bought 16 even if I could have. Edited the post to clarify.

Take it to the mechanic and have them do a "Draw Test" which will determine what is "drawing" power from your battery. I had the same thing happen to my car a few months ago and it was a bad sensor that was causing my radio to stay on 24/7 even though the car wasn't running and was draining my battery. Once I got the sensor and the battery replaced there haven't been anymore problems.
