The yard sale has grown into a major event. Even without signs, non-shoppers know when the sale is on because of traffic jams along U.S. 127 and the number of avid shoppers who can pull off the road at the drop of a hat if an interesting possibly appears in their vision.
Last year's yard sale program on HGTV was "Endless Yard Sale 2003." Got to www.hgtv.com and put Endless Yard Sale in the search block on the left side to get that article and tips on shopping.
Airline ticket is a puzzler
Sports reporter Mike Marsee presented a puzzler to me.
In the grandstands at the Mercer County Horse Show, he found a airplane ticket stub. Normally, the seat card we carry onto a plane isn't all that interesting, but this one started us conjecturing. Since I like to travel, he knew I'd be intrigued.
The airline is Kenya Airways. On June 19, the ticket holder flew from Nairobi to Kilimanjaro.
Is it someone local? Was it someone who brought horses to the show? We may never know, but it adds a sense of adventure to see a Kenya Airways' ticket on my desk.
People who take up two parking spaces when they park. This business person said parking spaces next to downtown businesses are limited it makes it inconvenient for others who also need to park.
