It's Party Time!!!

Good morning everyone! Well, it is Garage Sale day and we are dry, so far. Only a chance of thunderstorms this morning and 40% chance of precipitation. The odds are in our favour. We are setting up the sale and will take it as it comes.

Happy Garage Saling and should things change, I will post and feel free to make comments.
