You ready for the big day tomorrow? T_O_B_

Tomorrow is the first day of Bike Month!

Or are you guys putting May Day baskets on all your friend's porches.

Right now the specific things I'm looking for are tea cup and sauce sets, anything I can utilize in my garden, and a skeleton key (preferably gold) for my daughter...... she thinks they're magical.

Roe, I'm still hoping that some little hole-in-the-wall junk store has a shelf of Randalls for $19.99 apiece......

I'm looking for one of those freeze-dried armadillos from Mexico. Also a jackalope.

"Yes, we shall dance around the maypole and sing traditional songs." Autie

If you do that tomorrow, our very own Dear Leader will consider that rioting and have you beaten.

Everytime I wander thru a flea market / junk store, I've got an eye out for a Springfield Randall.

Puritans frowned on May Day, so the day has never been celebrated with as much enthusiasm in the United States as in Great Britain. But the tradition of celebrating May Day by dancing and singing around a maypole, tied with colorful streamers or ribbons, survived as a part of the English tradition. The kids celebrating the day by moving back and forth around the pole with the the streamers, choosing of May queen, and hanging of May baskets on the doorknobs of folks -- are all the leftovers of the old European traditions

Yes, we shall dance around the maypole and sing traditional songs.

I collect certain patterns of mid-century modern barware and dinnerware. Unfortunately the only men at flea markets are following around wives or boyfriends.

A 1962 Mercury Comet model car kit. Seems Knology's online bill pay is in the middle of an upgrade. Good timing, I'd say. Right when all the payments are due...

Also, some of those blue haired trolls. For my computer desk. I already have names picked out for them. But no rocks. Definitely no rocks.

I don't know about a foot in a bucket but I found a yard and half one time.

Roe, once you find that Mayan calendar, forget it cause it will be June before you know it..

My fleas have been showing a great deal of interest in my laptop so maybe a teeny tiny computer. I draw the line at weapons though. Last thing I need is flea wars in my scalp. Or any place else for that matter.

Is there such a thing as a crab market?
