Anyone Else Doing An Archeological Dig?

I had such fun writing this blog for the Loose Id Authors Coffeetime Romance Retreat, I thought I'd recycle it here!

Last weekend we finally did it!
It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
In fact, it was downright fun.
It was so much fun, my husband and I are actually going to do it again!

Oh you silly! Not that!
We had a garage sale!

We had a wonderful time meeting people, complaining about the weather and handing off our discards to folks who thought they were treasures.

We actually got rid of enough stuff that we can get to the other side of the garage to the stuff we really want to get rid of. (Hence the thought about doing it again.)

We haven’t moved in a thousand years and things just piled up and piled up but they weren’t in the way so we had no incentive to do anything about it. Until my son moved back home after college…

It was hysterical some of the things we were saving. My husband had over 500 golf balls. (He’s not the greatest golfer in the world but he’s not THAT bad that he needs 500 gold balls.) I found my wedding album – from my first marriage. Somehow, I figure if I’ve been married for two decades to my second husband, I probably don’t need the pictures from the first. Right?

I found a tour guide pamphlet for Universal Studios in California. An adult admission price? $7.25! Children were $5.25! Today’s price? $69.00. I think I may hold onto this.

I have no idea why I'm saving most of this stuff. Somewhere along the line it must have been important to me but now, I think the only ones who might be remotely interested in it are archeologists looking to explore the last few decades in Surburbia.

I found you through Tracy Cooper Posey and your intereview Waltz Me Through Time. I loved your interview and am fascinated by your book. I love time travel and am adding you as new author to my list and this book on my to buy list. Being retired I have to space my purchases but I will get the book at some point (maybe I can win one..LOL) I have been avid reader for over 55 yrs and the books seem to be getting better, if possible. Thanks again for the great interview.
