Y'all, I declare I have never read so many funny and precious comments about mayonnaise...of all things!! Danielle even popped back over to see which brand was winning!! You all are a hoot!! I believe the brand of choice--according to you all--is Hellmans. Not me!! I grew up on Miracle Whip!! And the Dukes mayo company is right down the road here in Mauldin! It's a southern item, but if the recipe calls for real mayo, it's the one I use! When it boils down to it, they all just have a tangy flavor that adds to a sandwich or recipe!! This was fun! Thanks for participating!
I told Rhoda that I would not be doing any more yard sales for awhile! I really meant it! But y'all, yesterday, while I was out running with the group at 6:30 am, some folks were setting up in front of a florist's shop. I ran by and strained my neck to see if there was anything worth looking at. Didn't see a thing that jumped out at me. An hour later, ran back by and looked from the road again. Got in my car and drove by and saw a piece of furniture that hadn't been there earlier. Kept driving and pondering and pondering and finally turned the mama mini van around. Can you believe that? I pulled over and got out...trying to look cool in sweat drenched shorts and a shirt...the hair was beyond fixing!! I didn't even have a spare hat in the car! But for Pete's sake, I was just going to a yard sale! Then, I saw the wooden furniture beckoning me over for a closer look.
Hmm....looked like a desk. I gently took off "stuff" from the top to open a back lid. It was a huge storage area with lots of spools of thread! This was a sewing table, not a desk! Solid wood and in decent shape. Then the owner walked over (after he watched me move all of his other treasures to the ground!). He said it belonged to his grandmother who would be 100. Then, he said the table was an antique of at least 75 years. Y'all, I'm thinking "not!" I do know my wood and finishes and time frames enough to be dangerous. I asked why then was he selling it? He replied he was down-sizing from a house to an apartment. Made sense. The price was $20.00. That's all I had in my wallet--and will be all I have until I substitute in 2 weeks!! I asked if he could do any better, but he said no. He did add some pictures that I liked into the total price though. Not sure I got a bargain, but I do have nice good sized table!! Not sure if I'll keep it or paint it and sell it! Decisions, decisions!! What would you do??? Hop over to Southern Hospitality for more cool yard sale finds.
