I can't believe its Friday already and time for Friday Fragments.
I expect many people wouldn't pay much attention to flagpoles but I live across the street from a firehouse and their flagpoles are the prime view out my kitchen window. There are many times when I can hear them flapping in the breeze from inside our house. Seeing limp flags is unusual, and that is just what happened the other day. I don't mean the wind died down for a few minutes. The calm lasted several hours. That is rare enough that I can't recall the last time it happened.
After parking my car in the supermarket lot I notice this little guy on the dashboard of the car parked in front of me. I was delighted when I got close enough to see that it was Captain Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean. I can't believe I missed this Happy Meal toy. Johnny Depp is one of my favorite actors.
There is a resale shop that I visit almost weekly. I really missed those visits all last winter when I was stuck at home with a compromised immune system after completing my Chemotherapy treatments. I was having serious withdrawal symptoms by the time I was able to get back there this spring. I was rewarded by finding this love seat.
I wanted to replace our large sofa with a smaller love seat since moving into our small house. The size of this one was perfect and I loved that it was split into two pieces. It's easier to move it to make room for the Christmas tree. It was also a perfect fit for my short legs. I hate sofas where my feet don't touch the floor. But, I didn't like the price. I kept going back and checking on it and finally found it in the bargain room for twenty-five dollars. I was shocked to find a label on the underside from one of the best furniture manufacturers in the country and another for an expensive department store. I also found a manufacture date. Would you believe this gem is almost fifty years old.
Now I just have to save up the money to get it reupholstered. Oh yeah! I also have to win the discussion with the Old Salt over what kind of fabric to use. Either way I'm watching Craig's List hoping to score a great deal on some material.
