Amy and I were driving home last Monday afternoon when we passed a house with the remains of a weekend yard sale sitting there beside the road in several cardboard boxes with a big, nicely-lettered "FREE" sign in front of them. Amy got out and poked around but didn't see anything, but I knew what I wanted, so I took the sign. Hey, it said it was free.

A new commenter, Moooog35, appeared this morning in response to this post, so I mosey'd on over to take a look at his blog and read the funniest damn thing I've read in a long time. It's called "Raisins are People Too". I see a few of you have already found this, but anyone who has not yet seen it needs to go over, NOW.
