today we set a
course for adventure,
our mind on a free dinghy off trashnothing.
it was worth the trip to seabeck;
they even threw
in the oars--literally.
but little did we suspect it was also
community wide garage sale day, so we did the
the boat with booty
from 10 different homes: simpson ties,
bins, diner china (to match my grandmother's), an
insulated safety vest,
checker cab Vans, LED trim lights for our cans,
pitchforks, sawhorses, bench
vise, folding camping cot, football, wet tile saw
with stand, sundry bags, a box of
3" ornamental wood numbers (unopened), garbage can,
shelf brackets, and, yes, even the
kitchen sink (free). at our last stop, the guy
couldn't believe we got a livingston dinghy for
when i told him it needed a patch, he gave me a near
full can of fiberglass resin. it felt like destiny.
