ESTATE SALES ARE GREAT
The price makers said that family and friends could have a little pre-sale before the big "Estate Sale" on the 19th. Well that kind of filled the street with cars and many of the ladies brought big purses. You don't have to be dead to have an Estate Sale it seems. Lauren's daughter, Anne, shown in the photo (as if you couldn't tell) bought the lounge suite, the leather lounge chairs and the bedside tables and a bunch of other stuff, which we loaded onto the trailer and unloaded at their house. Now all I need to do is to get Tony, Anne's other half, to paint the lounge walls the same color as our house and the "Queen" will be perfectly at home once more. Tom and Barbara on "MORSAN" are safe in Wrightsville Beach N.C. and Hurricane "IKE", now a humungous monster is heading for Galveston Bay, Texas. You could fit the whole of Florida inside the storm. We can feel the effects of it here already. Gas (Petrol) is due to rise tomorrow by as much as $1.50 per gallon. There has been incredible destruction in its wake in Turks & Caicos, Bahamas and Cuba and there surely will be more when it makes landfall at 2am on Saturday morning. Evacuations are already in progress.
