S is for Springtime and Sale, T is for Trash or Treasure
I know I'm probably breaking the rules for the challenge here, but I'm going to combine S and T because they go together so well for this post. And I've been too darn busy the last couple of days to do one at a time.
Springtime in Florida is ideal for having a garage sale or moving sale or whatever-you-fancy sale. We fancy getting rid of a lot of stuff before we make the final move to Tallahassee. The house we're moving into is about 400 square feet smaller than our home, and there's no garage or barn for extra storage. Besides, what do we need with all of this extraneous stuff? It's not exactly trash to us, but it may well be treasure to someone else.
The only item I wish we could have sold and haven't so far is the roll-top desk. No room for it either. I guess not many people use fancy desks anymore. Laptops and hand-held devices have made them almost obsolete. Today's trash may be tomorrow's treasure. I hope I'm not stealing some popular TV show slogan. If you see this desk netting someone big bucks on Antique Road Show 50 years from now, you can say you saw it here first. Of course by then, TV will probably be obsolete.
