Sometimes I guess I’m a little bit . . . oh what’s the word I’m looking for, oh yeah — dumb.

An Antique Mall! (Which is code for overpriced thrift store, but still!) All this time, I could have been exploring their old books and magazines! Which just goes to show you that sometimes it pays to look right and left.

This man not only makes a living writing short paragraphs, he is the human living embodiment of a short paragraph! Which I guess just goes to show you that God always gets it right!
Well, that was a fun day off from the blog wasn’t it Dear Readers? Here’s a sneak peek of what we’ll be leisurely browsing through on our next day off:
Don’t ya just love that hole in his pants!
Until next time . . . I love you
