In my sole post for December, I shared that during the last week of Thanksgiving we were preparing our booth at Knick Knacks Antique Mall for an Open House. Sis and I didn’t have a lot of sales, but working the Open House was a LOT of fun.
I have to admit..... it was so hard not to shop as I walked around and helped customers find things. You'd be proud of me..... I even passed on these bird plates! Birds are 'kinda' my thing and 3 of these are my favorite! I rationalized the entire time that they could be my 4 plates in the RV one day, but alas, I prevailed and said goodbye to them at the end of the night. It was hard to do. The seller was only asking $4.00 for each, including holders (which I would resell), AND they were Lennox!
I did buy this display hutch though, and while it won't fit in my future RV, there really is a method to my madness. I have a game plan that fits in the grand scheme of things, but you'll just have to wait and see (tee hee).
I took the dogs with me which meant that I had to get creative about their breaks. It was fun. It gave me a chance to pretend we were boondocking (RV Camping for free with no hook-ups) and I had to find places to walk them.
We were in Duncanville, and even though I lived there off and on while growing up, that was 35 +/- years ago! I’ve slept a few times since then, so… Modern technology to the rescue. I summonsed Siri on my iPhone.
Siri – “What can I help you with?”
Me – “Nearest Dog Park"
Siri – “There are 5 parks nearby that allow dogs. Please choose one.”
I love modern technology! There was a park on the list that I had completely forgotten! I used to frequent it as a kid. My favorite thing to do back then was run the creek bed and make a game out of hiding from the other people in the park. It was a great day if I made it from one end to the other without anyone having seen me. Forget that I was soaking wet and muddy from head to toe - I was invisible!
Needless to say, probably not a safe thing to do in this modern age, but it was fun seeing the old stomping grounds. It had changed, but it was a blast from the past for me, and well, just a blast for the furbabies. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit, and no, we did not forage the creek bed. LOL.
Doesn’t this picture remind you of one from a previous post (click here)?
You can see why we enjoyed it so, right?

The next morning all 3 of us needed an extended hike so we headed to River Legacy Park. It was a great start to a great month.
In closing, here’s a picture game for you. How many turtles do you see? Hint: There are 5 in the pull-out I provided for you, and there are at least 5 more in the big pic. Have fun!
