Get ready....Get set.....!


It's that time again.

Mr. Marvelous has the day off.  We got up early this morning, and as you read this we are (hopefully) on the road.  It's time for the Highway 127 World's Longest Yard Sale!

This is one of our favorite activities of the year.  It will be a little different this year; Mr. Marvelous no longer has a big, empty van, so we won't be buying any bulky furniture this time.

But we have our list, (this is mine.  Mr. Marvelous has his own).
Yes, I'm banning tchotchkes.  I do not need more.
I have my camera,

Jack has his Diet Mountain Dew

and we are on our way.

There is a rumor circulating that we might be looking for a Mrs. Jack South.  I can neither confirm nor deny those statements so you will have to check in Monday to see our take.  Or Tuesday for the Jack update.

We have had our share of adventures over the years and our share of fun "stuff" we have found.  Some of that "stuff" is still being put to good use.

Some of it is...well....
This is usually off by at least a pound.  Or five.

Our plan is to start in Gadsden and get as far as Mentone.  The pickings on up Lookout Mountain and Signal Mountain last year were disappointing, so we probably won't try to go any further than Mentone.  I'm sure we will find some adventures.  Mr. Marvelous might even find a new cap.
Just not one this cool.

If you are in the area, look for us and wave.  Good hunting and Happy Friday!
