garage sales and free treasures

Up at sunrise on Saturday morning, there’s a little rain, but not enough to discourage a garage sale enthusiast like me. Today the finds were exceptional: Five big sweet oranges for a buck, right off the tree. A backpack/low slung beach chair combo, $5. Three aloha shirts, 50 cents apiece. Angels and Demons by Dan Brown, hardcover, 50 cents for a beach read. One hundred golf balls for $5, enough for our entire stay. And best find of all, while I was at a garage sale where a neighbor was trimming his plants and bushes, I asked if I could have some cuttings and he was happy to oblige me with free flowers and colorful croton leaves for beautiful arrangements. Life is complete: food, beach supplies, clothing essentials and fresh flowers. Who has it better than me?
