Astoria Part 2:
But this year, I was alone (as in, I had no man helping me).....and figured I could handle it myself. Oy!
Amazingly, it was an amazing success....probably one of the best sales I've had. But what caught me off guard and completely bugged me was that soooo many people talked down to me like I was just an employee or a renter. I had one guy ask how it was possible that a person like me could possibly own the building! Others asked to speak to the man that owned the business. Many people wanted to know if the property had recenty changed hands or was about to be sold or if I was going out of business. People were down right RUDE!
Ah well, whatever!!
Then the next day, as I was trying to recover from the garage sale, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck came to repair my roof (I swear it was them, really! Well, at least, it looked like them!).....and then I had another Matt Damon come and bring me wood (wow, that sounded a little risque, didn't it?!) But I'm saving those stories for Part 3. Hey....I gotta string you along a little bit!
Stay tuned........comments??? (5 so far...) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Anyway, so what's been happening with me?
Well, first, I drove up to Oregon and stayed at this motel (on my way back to Astoria). I have stayed at this place before, and it was fabulous....they have these little log cabins on a cliff above the ocean. But this time, there were HUGE termites running around in the living room (I squashed nearly a dozen!....and feared for what might be crawling in the bed!!)....and there was mold on the shower curtain, and stains on the bedspread. Oy! It was horrible. But oddly, I still have a fondness for the place.....it is so picturesque, but unfortunately, they've let the place go.
I told the management about the problems (in the nicest way I could), but they didn't seem too concerned. Hmmm. I will not be going back.
Then I arrived at my building in Astoria....where it was 48 degrees inside! (And I am so out of practice for chopping wood!) But I got the fires going (I have two wood stoves for a 5000 square foot area).....and then I nearly burned the place down by plugging in two electric heaters on the same circuit (I should know better after all these years!)*But maybe I should have my wiring checked!*
And then!.....well, stay tuned, consider this *part one.* Tomorrow I'll tell you about the wicked garage sale....and maybe more about the crazyness of the washer. But for now I must get naked and get into the bath and into the bed.....I am sooooo tired!
Goodnight everyone.....see you tomorrow!!!comments??? (3 so far...) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
