I Love a small town and AWESOME Thrift Day

Note: I just spent a half hour writing a post and then it just disappeared. Thanks Blogger...I'm saying bad words I can't post right now!

Breathe deeply...okay...I Love a small town, take 2.  Olympic Spoiler...Lindsey Vonn got the gold!!! Whoohoo!!! The news said look away if you want to watch the coverage and be surprised...I couldn't stand it...I looked. I might be asleep by the time it comes on in prime time. 
I took this picture the other day on President's day. Our small town is very patriotic and flies old Glory for every patriotic holiday.  We also love parades!  I grew up in a small town much like this.  When we retire to LaPine, I will probably die in a small town. I stole that for John Cougar Mellencamp. What's up with the "Cougar"?  I went for a nice training walk this afternoon with my training partner.
He still has a smile on his face after 3 miles.  I had to run some errands this morning so I popped into the Yellow house to look for a little treasure (that's how I roll). The first thing I found was a Dooney & Bourke purse. For a BUCK.  Then I found a gorgeous plaid Pendleton jacket lined with thinsulate for $2.00. The prices have gone up and the gal at the register was apologetic, I was like "oh, it's 2 dollars?" when in my mind I was thinking "I'm going to do a freakin' cartwheel in the parking lot when I leave here!" Not really, I probably would break a hip! Here are the treasures I found:

As if that was not enough, I stopped at our Book Nook which supports our local library. Magazines are free...here's what I got:

I felt compelled to buy something since I scored so big on the mags, so here are the videos I got for fifty cents a piece:
The only thing that would make this day better is if my sweetie were here to snuggle with...Miss ya Honey!!!

Goodness, those are good prices! The thrift stores here in DC are almost as much as new from Ross.
