More Proof of Vast Prosperity

Hi All!

With apologies to Mitch and the NARN gang, my favorite radio personality in the Twin Cities is ratings leader Joe Soucheray. Those who have ever heard him will "get" the subject of this post.

I sum Joe up as a poor man's semi-conservative Garrison Keillor.

For the unwashed, the title of this post is a contraction of two of Joe's "Garage Logic" sayings, those being, that America suffers only from "Vast Prosperity" and the record weather highs and lows for each day, despite years and degrees are sarcastically referred to as "More proof of Global Warming."

So, today was Falcon Heights City Garage Sale.

I determined that if we can't even organize the garbage in every nook and cranny of our abode, that it wouldn't make much sense to try to price and organize it on the driveway.

We concentrated on disposing of Large Obstructions.

Since our household income does not qualify for a charity deduction, we put several very nice childrens' items out at curbside with "FREE" placards attached.

I mean, this is stuff you would have to pay REAL MONEY to get at KidsWorld or wherever.

Despite alot of traffic, the fine toy chest, easel, Tyco plastic gym and picnic table remain unclaimed.

Reminds me of Monty Python's "Life of Brian" which has a scene in which Brian can't give away a free gourd for lack of his wont of "haggling."
