The Daily Drivel (vol.4 issue 30)

…Dateline The Cats Castle East Tennessee USA…

…Well a happy TGIF to one and all…

…We’re catching our breath and resting up today after a hard week doin the roadside hustle…

…I started with a full day of furniture cleaning Monday followed by open the market go mow two lawns then close the market on Tuesday…

…Next came a hump it,lump it,stump it Wednesday…

…And on Thursday an earyl morning drive in the country to a place tucked in at the root of these old mountains in a small private valley…

…Picked up a load of freebies and an old washtub set for a 50/50 split on the take…

…Have to go back there for some antique evaluations and possibly a deal on selling some old trucks and a camper…

…”Holy cow Batman” we seem to be finding a different direction to play in…

…Plus we had a drive by shopper from Wisconsin of all places and a fascinating fellow who spotted some old chemistry glassware we found in the banana boxes…

…A Purdue educated fellow who had taught and been vice principal out at the Cosby high school…

…We discussed his adventures in chemistry over the years and came to the conclusion that the fun has been taken right on out of education these days…

…Seems they don’t teach chemisrty like they used to cause they think the kids will do bad things with the chemicals and equipment…

…Like we NEVER did anything like that..nope NEVER…

…Heard some good stories and met some intewresting folks along the way too…

…But closed out the week with a poor drug crazed woman looking for “help cause I had a fire”…

…Something available at any number places in town as long as you have a fire report to prove the need…

…We get this more often than I care to mention…

…The con being you “help” by giving them clothes,household goods or whatever and they run down the road and pawn it off to buy more damn pills…

…This woman was higher than a kite and I was happy to see her move on down the road…

…It’s a vicious addiction these people suffer from with these modern PERSCRIPTION medications…

…Oh well I would count it as a pretty good week anyway…

…Made some cash,had some fun,worked to damn hard and have lines and connections out on more merch and some other interesting deals…

…And even lived to tell the tale…

…Takin Saturday off this week too just for good measure…

…And Miss Leslie was worried at where the merch was gonna come from..SMH…

…I’ll tell ya I ain’t no “picker Dude”..nope I’m a danged Merch Magnet…

…Oh well in a couple weeks we’ll go back to the valley and I can hear some stories from the fellow who lived all the way up in Alaska for six or so years…

…Ifin ya wanna travel the world just come on down the the Long Island Lady’s Roadside Huslte cause it takes all kinds to make the world go round…

…And it seems they all come to see her sooner or later…

…Yall have a wonderful weekend now..Ya hear…

    I sure wished I lived closer to you, have a lot of treasures to get rid of before they foreclose on my home. God bless you for saving these things.
