What a great success!!!!

The BOP yard sale was a great success! The sale brought in over $750. Wow!!!! I must thank Trish who was the brain child of this event and her sister-in-law Julie. I'd also like to thank Nancy who is Justin's teacher who showed up before the sun to help also. All the wonderful people at Progeny Systems and Bennett Elementary who donated most of the stuff. The guys who shuttled stuff over to the sale did a fantastic job. A special thanks to Lynn and Gary Sikora who permitted us the use of their driveway for the sale....

I arrived around 7am and I can honestly say that we had customers there steady until I left after 1pm.

Trish has given me some other wonderful ideas for fundraisers in the future.

Here are a few pictures from yesterday..

This is a good friend from the Runners World Forum FeetDontFailMeNow. She dropped by and brought some stuff for the sale.

While downloading pictures from the camera I saw this one and had to post it. This is Blue and he has been a little lost since the passing of Bear. He seems to be finally settling in. He now thinks he is a lap dog. LOL

Glad the yard sale went well. And, glad you got to meet another forum member.

A lap dog that size is perfect for winter...

Mackenzie has been mopping every day since we bought it from the yard sale. She loves the other toys as well, but right now she's really into playing house. :)

Guam, here I come!
