ON THE BACK BURNER

July 17

Yard sale day. I noticed this morning ,when I went to walk Dixie, that my car was missing. Usually, who ever wants to use it, will ask or tell me that they are taking it. Seeing it gone at 8 in the morning , was a little disconcerting. Right away, I had negative thoughts that someone got sick and they were rushed to the hospital, etc, etc. Turned out that there was a tool yard sale , starting at 8 and my son wanted to be the first  one there. We usually don't leave the compound  until 10:30, so he would have missed whatever he was looking for. Mystery solved. No one was sick or hurt. Our yard sale- ing was interesting. We went to one that was in the home owners wood working shop. I wanted to move into the shop. The structure was as large as a 2 bedroom house would be. One wall was two barn door sized windows that looked over a valley ,here in PT. The other three walls had windows ,about 10 feet off the ground, entirely around the three walls. The light was fantastic. The  building would make a beautiful ADU,which is very popular around here. Then I wondered about the actual family, They were selling  books ,whose subjects ran from country gardens to the history of architecture. And they had one of my favorite books, " The secret life of Trees". I bought it. They were selling, toe shoes,tap shoes, snow boots and mucking about boots,riding helmets for horse back riding,skis, life jackets ,ice skates, bocci balls,roller skates,and stuff. I like to think about the people selling at yard sales, but I couldn't figure out these people. Where do you ice skate in PT. Is there a dancing school in town? This is what is fascinating to me about these sales. Who are these people. ? Why am I here?
