on the couch with my feet up....

i spent the last two days at the leadership summit - and it was so good for me. all the wisdom and all the challenge is sifting through me, and i am looking forward to seeing where it settles...

meanwhile, while i'm here in NC, my parents have The Girls. and they are spinning glories every day. today is the 400 mile yard sale - a literally 400 mile yard sale along an old KY highway, where anyone who wants to can pull up to the side of the highway and unload their truck o' crap. and hundreds and hundreds of folks drive past in their cars and stop at the ones that look good, or keep cruising for a "good" one. we did it a couple of summers ago, and i bought a great chair, but the danger is you can end up a good hundred miles from home without realizing it! :) the girls each have some pocket money from papa, and i told him to try to steer them away from every child's garage sale joy.... the unwashed stuffed animal. not sure why kids love these things so much, but they make me shudder. so i they better not come home with some new, mangy stuffed creature. or my dad is toast.

Mangy stuffed creatures have feelings too... no wait, actually they don't.
