can keep me from posting my weekly purge! You'll just have to close your eyes and imagine what they look like.
141- Black wide legged work pants. With tags. Languished in my closet for over four years, waiting to be hemmed.
142- Navy cotton Bermuda shorts. Right. Shorts rank up there with bathing suits in my wardrobe.
143- Black cotton sweater. I have three.
144- Beaded pie weights. Got these as a gift and used them once. I think it was back in 1975.
145- Four fake gourds. I grew real ones instead.
146- Black Merrell shoes. You know, the kind that make you think you are walking pigeon-toed? I find (lo and behold) that I own three pair of very similar shoes. These are the lace-up kind and I am practicing for when I am old and feeble (in about 24 hours), so no laces for me.
147- "The Silver Palate Cookbook". One of my oldies but goodies that I used constantly, back in the day. I have not opened it during the entire time I've lived here. Time to share.
(Not counted but still jettisoned, three pair of BGPs that were beginning to look like a cross between cotton gauze and Swiss cheese. I find it very difficult to part with comfy undies. TMI?)
Duck news - someone is quacking. I had put them outside in a pen yesterday and then, when I brought them back inside last night after work, I heard a distinct "Quack". It's the largest one - I caught him looking around, startled expression on his puss, wondering where that sound came from. My babies are growing up!
