The last time we tried one, I ended up being the only person sorting and pricing the crap, umm, items, that came in.
At least this year there’s been a lot more help.
One older lady has been especially entertaining. She has a sense of humor that I enjoy, and that seems to elude a few of the other ladies.
One lady was complaining about having to go to a funeral for Jean So and So. It was messing up her day.
Kathleen’s come back was, "Well, I don’t imagine it’s made Jean’s day either."
I thought it was very funny, and was thinking something along those lines too… that and "quit bitching."
It made me laugh even harder when I saw the look of total confusion on the other ladies faces.
I enjoy helping with these fund raisers because when I was little, growing up the oldest of 7, in an Italian, Portuguese house, there was no quiet. Yelling and screaming was pretty much a 24/7 event.
I would escape to the library where, it was warm in the winter, cool in the summer, and what I thought had to be heaven on earth… it was Quiet!
I’ve always loved reading, and so, this is my way of making sure that children in this community have a library. There are many towns around us who don’t.
So, what are your plans for the weekend?(Yes, I’m already looking forward to the weekend) lol BIG HUGS, Steph
