We Took Out An Ad On Craigslist

The house looks like a bomb went off! Stuff is everywhere. We quickly realized an interim step in packing is, “Holy crap what a mess!”

Parts of tonight’s dinner were served on Barbie paper plates. Does that give you an idea?

We’re moving with no furniture. Most is staying with the house.

What to do with the rest? We have a veritable lost and found after 23 years in this place.

Helaine has organized a tag sale for Saturday 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM. We’re selling household goods, lots of ties and some odds and ends of furniture. We even took out an ad on Craigslist.

I’ll admit it. It’s weird for me, someone who’s been in the public eye for decades, to mention our tag sale online. It seems the right thing to do.

I suspect some of you might come to say hi (no goodbyes, please). That’s fine. There’s no obligation to buy.

I have no idea how many people will come. In case there is a crowd, I ask you please be respectful of my neighbors and neighborhood.

See you Saturday. The weather will cooperate!

  1. Sure, finally a chance to actually meet you and say “hi” and I’ll be in South Carolina. You couldn’t have waited just one more week? (Ummm…really, just kidding). Maybe one day, I’ll have an opportunity to meet you and Helaine in SoCal.

  2. I have to work until noon, and there;s a book sale at the library (always bad news for me)but I’ll try and get down there as soon as I can.
    I’ll bring my camera.
    Will Doppler be in attendance?

  3. Make sure that you tell everyone that all items come with a “tail-light guarantee.” When their tail lights disappear, the guarantee expires. (I heard a guy at a flea market say that. Loved it.)

  4. How much old tech stuff do you have? I figure a guy like you probably has some pretty geeky stuff that a fellow geek could appreciate….
