Garage Sale @ Holt Press

I love garage sales.

I love going to them and I love having them.

Yesterday we had one, partly as a result of going to too many of them!

It was successful in both of the critical factors that determine a successful garage sale:

1. We got rid of a lot of stuff we didn't want

2. We made some extra money, in this case about $400.

The car is loaded with the leftovers ready for delivery to an op shop.
The garage is much less cluttered.
And I met lots of people and had a good time.

Talking of a good time, let me recommend a movie that Mrs Holt Press and I went to see this afternoon.
"Silver Linings Playbook". We both loved it. It's about a man coming home after being in a mental health facility to live with his parents, played by Robert DeNiro and Jacki Weaver who has been nominated for an Oscar for her performance. Well worth seeing.

I start work at 5.30 tomorrow morning so...good night!
