Random Five Friday


I found this, "little", gem inside of my son's pocket while prepping laundry.  A Crayfish body part....what an icky surprise.  

Cold pizza and coffee is the breakfast of Queens.  

The 400-mile Yard Sale runs through my area this weekend.  I am not a, "yard-saler", but yet it does intrigue me.  

I am finally reading, As I Lay Dying, by William Faulkner.  Wow.  Why didn't we read this in my American Lit class in college?  

Finally, a bit of rain for my garden.  Hurray!  

Linking up with Nancy at A Rural Journal

Pay her a visit y'all!

    1. Crayfish are crustaceans and resemble a lobster. They are quite plentiful in the Ohio Valley rivers.

  3. my hubby loves yard sales - it was pushed into him at a very young age ... me i dislike them. i will enjoy them for him ... i guess. ha. ha!!! ( :

    i guess you could find worse in pockets, right? my hubby forgot a vitamin & it messed up the wash. what about the times he forgot a napkin or paper towel. ha. ha!!

  4. Yuck on the cray fish! I have found some disgusting things in the dryer in my day too...

    I love yard sales! But have to limit how much I spend. Sure something might be a bargain, but if you don't really need it, it's just stuff...

  5. cold pizza and coffee now that is a younger womans breakie :-) used to love it though.
    Crayfish in your son's pants at least it was a part of a crayfish. I have read AILD by WF, can't remember a thing about it, it was 45 years ago, I hope he isn't reading your emails.

  8. I'd have a blast at the yard sales -- but I really don't need anything, so it's good there's no temptation around here!

    At least the crawfish wasn't still alive. :)

  10. We did that yard sale one year - or at least a part of it. I didn't buy much but the people watching and the atmosphere was fun.

  14. Oh I've always wanted to go to that yard sale!

    LOL over the pocket surprise.

  15. Oh, the things we find in pockets!!! :)
    The 400 mile garage sale sounds very intriguing.
    Our garden has had enough rain, and mostly needs WARMTH! Poor little veggie seeds haven't gotten warm enough to germinate.. we're afraid they'll be rotted. The sun is trying hard to peek out today, though.

  16. The yard sale would be interesting, depending on the weather.

    I'll never complain about simple nuts & bolts in John's pockets again...crayfish body parts??? ha

  17. I like yard sales but 400 miles.... not enough time or money or energy. But, I bet it is fun.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I bet there's never a dull moment with doing boys' laundry haha. Although I would be quite shocked with that surprise as well. We just had a 100 mile yard sale here over Memorial Day weekend and I thought that was big. But a 400 mile yard sale is awesome!

  19. Boys will be boys and one never knows what fascinates them! lol I have never been a yard saler either, but those that do, stick it out. That particular sale comes thru here too, but I have never been. Have a good weekend.

  20. I haven't decided whether or not I am going as it runs by me, too. They don't allow it here in the city though. Feeling kind of lazy :)

  21. Oh, the good old days of finding 'treasures' in pockets. Now I just find money, but that's not bad! The 400 mile yard sale makes me tired just thinking about it. Had cold pizza for lunch just yesterday.... Hope you have a great weekend! xo

  22. I'd be really tempted to go to the yard sale...I don't need a thing...but it's always fun to look, and I usually find something that I think I need after all! As for the pocket find...I tell my family...finders keepers, losers weepers...if I find it in the laundry, it becomes mine! You hit the jackpot! :)

  23. 400 miles? Wow- that's a serious stretch of yard sales! I'm laughing at your pocket find.

    ReplyDelete
  24. A 400 mile tag sale? That is a new one to me.

    ReplyDelete
  25. haha...oh now that is a pocket treasure!

  26. I would love to see that yard sale.

  27. Eewwww - good thing you found that claw. 400 mile garage sale - even I'd be tempted.

    ReplyDelete
  28. EW! The crayfish claw was a surprise, I'm sure. As I Lay Dying is one of my most favourite books. I read it as an adult too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. 400 miles of another's junk???... that's a lot of another man's poison. hahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've seen that yard sale on TV. I find it intriguing too. So much junk and a treasure of two, perhaps.

  31. people do auctions around here because well, its too big inbetween ranches for tag sales LOL so everyone hoards their stuff and twice a year, spring and fall, there s a community auction where you bring your stuff and see if you can sell it ...

    and your son might be the next jacque cousteau!

  32. I guess I should give Faukner another chance. I didn't love the last one of his I read, but I've grown up a little since then.

  36. The crawfish claw reminds me of our 5 years living in Louisiana.. I adored the crawfish meals.. crawfish pie, deep fried, on salad, thermidor, etc. Have a great Sunday! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
