This is a great take on the old saying, one man's garbage is another man's treasure. I wanted to use a better word than garbage, but I'm in the midst of breakfast and my mind doesn't have the time to do that. :) <3

True, however, sometimes garbage is garbage. Yet. Getting things done, making them work, doing what you can to get by, are all part of the magic mix of redneck wisdom, and American artistry. :) Hugs. Ann

Love to spend the day doing that as well. So much fun. What treasure to be found... (tiny roses, in a small vase, at your back door, brought by gray squirrels and a mouse that sings). Ann

The stuff I have bought, the stuff I have seen, enough stuff for a lifetime, to sort, buy, fix, keep, give away, and enjoy. Humans are so silly about "stuff". Have the very best day every. Ann

Thank you! My good friend would not stop at them. One day, he did. We found books and books and books. He found heaven here on earth for just a short while. Now he stops without being asked. hehe... Books for .25 or 5 for a 1.00 is right up there with cherry pie and ice-cream. Ann

Surely are! The problem is that I became addicted to them, could not pass one. Then it gets crazy. I have had to force myself to NOT stop every time. Great poem, Ann.
