I find the sun to warm me
Bleach away the pain
The unfairness of it!
A perfect couple pulled apart
Sweat and tears, salt in my eyes
She is gone.
I look up
There is no Big Guy there for me
But there is something, a presence
So many hearts connected
Love and grief…
Hello, Fellow Fans of Found Foolishness! A couple weekends ago,
I made it to THREE YES THREE Value Village thrift stores here on
Seattle's Eastside, and collected some images from the rows and
rows of tchotchkes for you. Ponder them in good health, and please
UH OH. TROUBLE.
I hope everyone is having a pleasant and reflective Memorial Day
across the United States. Do something nice for a veteran today!
When you come back from doing that, you can look at these odd
things and reflect in a wholly different way. Please to enjoy!
This was on sale for TEN… Read full post »
I sometimes wonder what fellow thrift shoppers think of me, when I am smiling and taking photos of strange crap to show you here. Like, do they think I am checking out things that may be super-rare collectibles and worth money to an unseen buyer? Or that I am stone-cold crazy?… Read full post »
Well, my goodness gracious, the hits just keep on comin'! My trip to a nearby VV this past Saturday paid off again, in STRANGENESS! Bless all you weirdos making records! An amusing extra: while I was systematically flipping through the record bins, a group of three teenage boys hovered nearby, watchi… Read full post »
Once you pass the half-century mark, you realize that you have an awful lot of memories banging around in your cranium, running into each other, blending, swirling, fading, changing. A few are strengthened, and many are lost. I hate losing anything that is MINE MINE MINE, so I've worked at keeping… Read full post »
I thought, well, that's it, it's all caught up with me at last.
I thought, I'm screwed.
It's the secret worry of anyone who has spent a lifetime in and around rock music:
I am losing my hearing.
For the last couple of weeks, I have been…
Man, I am just useless in the A.M.! I had to take the kiddies into school this morning (a task I usually never have to undertake) and, bleary-brained without coffee or many glorious hours of uninterrupted sleep, I had to make a decision: go home and go back to bed OR… Read full post »
(April) Really, it's best to just get on your tasks right away.
(end of April) Hey, what's going on with the Science Fair project?
(NOW) OH. I SEE. IT'S DUE MONDAY. I SEE. HOW SURPRISING THAT NOTHING HAS BEEN STARTED FOR IT YET!
You smell of stale air, fuel,
Burnt coffee, always.
Floor lighting! Air mask!
Floatation device! In that
Event, we are toast.
Captain! Turn off the
Seatbelt sign NOW! Or I shall
Pee my pants in shame.
O, Peanuts! Pretzels!
You salty time-wasters, you.
Now I need water.
BAM! In getting up
Well, I'm back home in Washington after a leisurely 18 DAY vacation in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area, the laundry is running, the dishwasher is running, Miss Eleven is back in school, and I've mostly unpacked the four fat suitcases I brought back! But I've got one more thing to do to… Read full post »
Just whyyyyy does one extend a vacation in Florida,
hmm? Well, in my case, it was lots of good reasons INCLUDING the
chance to see the fab Jacuzzi
Boys perform in their hometown of Miami, Florida again, and at
one of my favorite cool places, Gramps!!
The boys don't get…

Hey, couples, here's your next Halloween costume idea!
OK, pals! I've rested my weary traveler thrifter bones for a bit, had a tiny mason jar filled with sake, and am ready to bring you some of the unusual items I've come across in the Miami/Fort Lauderdale area thrift stores in the last few days. I love people! Please to… Read full post »
