      I found this at a yard sale a few weeks ago. Actually, a divorce sale would be more accurate. Some old guy was selling a lot of vintage stuff and when I asked if he had a store he said no– he and his wife just split and he’s selling all the stuff she collected through the years. When I asked how it was that HE got the chotchkes in the settlement, he made some cryptic comment about her living in some unspecified “home.” Don’t know if he meant retirement or nursing home or perhaps Home for the Criminally Insane and I didn’t ask. Another reason why I love yard sales– the stories.
