    DH and I decided to go out on the highway 70 yard sale today, even though it is the last day of the 3-day sale. This is a yard sale that runs all the way from Memphis to Nashville all along highway 70. Well I am so happy I went, the first place we stopped was an estate sale, rather than a yard sale, and they had almost nothing left but just a few odds and ends in the yard, but then I saw a sign that said furniture in the house. Well, the last thing I need is furniture, but I found my self saying can I go in and look around? Guess what I found......it's not a feather weight, but it is a vintage Singer model 66-18. I got it in the cabinet for $15 and it runs too! Now DH and I have the project of getting it cleaned up and making sure everything is in tip top shape. Oh yeah I also found a vintage quilt top for $3.00. I take pictures tomorrow and post. :-D :-D :-D

    I am sure glad you got to go. I have set here with my two grandchildren wishing I could go. My youngest son called this morning and said he was thinking about me as he was on 70 and both sides of the road were covered with sales. He knows how much enjoyment I get out of it. But my granddaughter is very heat sensitive and I can't get her out in the sun. She is on an immune suppressant. Maybe next year or the 461 that goes from I-40 to Big Sandy.
