The other event on this weekend (Friday and Saturday) is the annual Garage Sale to benefit the Sarpy County Historical Society Museum. This is another gem of a museum we're lucky enough to have nearby, and I always enjoy a visit to see what they've added. The garage sale features donated items and in recent years I've been fortunate enough to come home with vintage sewing notions, lamps, brooches, shoes, and books. It is always best to get there early on the Friday for the best selection, but there's always something good on Saturday as well (no idea if they hold out items for the second day or not). It is a cash only operation, but worth the trouble of planning ahead-and the prices are so low you won't require much to fill a bag or two with great items. I'm planning to go Friday, then spend Saturday and/or Sunday at the Applejack festival-but of course I've learned not to set plans in stone.

Fragrance-Habit Rouge Dress Code (as flankers go, it is rather good)
Let's be honest-nylon isn't the most forgiving fabric for a pair of 36DD knockers. I either need to invest in better bras, or keep the jacket on.
Well, not keeping the jacket "on" in the traditional sense of course as we discussed yesterday, the new way to
look like an idiot wear your jacket is off the shoulders. Like so. I give this fad until the first frost when people come to their senses and pull up their coats in a nice wind-blocking defensive gesture.
Hope your weekend is as exciting or dull as you'd like it to be.
