When I took my walk this morning, I brought my phone and took pictures, thinking to do an illustrated Pedestrian Post. In the course of a 40 minute walk, I took nine pictures. That is too many for one post, so I will split things up.
Today was Herkimer’s Village-Wide Garage Sales. I have been seeing signs like this all over for the past few days.
I took my walk around six, well before garage sale time, even for early birds (and most of the garage sale ads I’ve ever seen say, “No early birds!” anyways). But I did see a couple of yards already prepared. I was certainly curious as to what the tarps were hiding.
As I walked, a runner who often exchanges greetings with me came up behind me.
“Good morning!” I said.
“It looks like everybody is getting ready for garage sales!” she said.
“I know, I’m making notes of where to go later!” Full disclosure: I did not go to any garage sales. I have too much stuff in my house as it is. I ought to have a garage sale myself, only I am far too unorganized.
The little paper says, “For Sale.” I took the picture, because the camper brought back memories of the pop-up camper we used to have when I was a kid. We had some good trips, and my sisters and I had some fun nights in our back yard in that camper.
Thoughts of garage sales and camping added a little interest to my walk. I hope to take another walk tomorrow.
