So the yard sale on Sunday was a bust. Hardly anyone showed up, so my friend and I just stood around in the hot sun most of the day.

The few people who did show up looked a little disturbed and hurried off. I don't know what their problem was:

What?

 Here's a good buy...hey! Where are you going? Don't run away.

Hmf. No point even trying. I'll just sit here and relax with a good book.

Hehehe!! I'm just kidding of course. The I found the Jason mask at some other lady's table and thought it presented a great opportunity for a few laughs, so I bought it for a dollar and convinced my friend to take some photos of me wearing it. She thought it was pretty funny too.

The part about not many people showing up is true though. The lady who organized the multi-family yard sale said she'd put it in both the local news papers. However, many of the people there said they didn't see any signs out on the streets or anything. I think people around here respond to yard sales that are advertised on telephone poles and street corners, more so than through newspaper ads, ergo, barely any sales. I think I made about 50 bucks and my friend even less. We've definitely made a lot more in other yard sales in the past. Oh well, live and learn I guess.

On a brigher note though, there was a guy with a
hermit crab. His name is "Kermit" (not the guy, the crab.). This guy is absolutely thrilled with his new hermit crab and his future plans for it involve teaching it how to skateboard.

Check out my groovy shell!

I am SO going to pinch you!

Is that true? Can hermit crabs skateboard? I hope they can. It would really brighten my day to see a crab on a tiny skateboard.
