I haven't...... those bags never made it into the house!... Lucky for me, her fellow employees got greedy and swiped a few bags out of the back of her truck and went thru it!! ( this was her explaination of why there was not more than one bag-- all I can say is...... thank you "fellow employees!!!!!!")
    I still scan the craigslist/freecycle/free ads for those deals..... some day MY deal with come!!!!!
    Sorry Bluteddi, I'm still laughing over your post.......pleather! Have to believe some good karma is coming your way with your next adventure. Certainly it is a tale you can tell for years.

    Thanks for all the good thoughts - I've washed and line-dried everything - FINALLY - now I'm putting it all in order and folding on cut up plastic corrugated political signs a recent 'village member winner' was tossing out on recycle day. My daughter will show me how to post photos of my newly organized stash next time she visits....I'm lucky I can figure how to turn my laptop on!!
