Went on a runaway to Ossoyous , I know spelling! ,Needed an end of winter break. The Home hardware there is a destination! I have never seen so many gadjets in my life.Older building with lots of nooks and crannies. We spent hours in there, and I am at best a reluctant shopper. Also went to see the miniature Railway display .Wow! Well worth the 7.50 admittance fee.

That Home Hardware is one of our favourite stores too. Their staff is exceedingly helpful as well.

You know what's neat about month end on a weekend? People putting free stuff they don't want anymore on the curb when they move. Got some lovely teacups from a neighbour across the street (sorry to see her go), a new (tags still on) beach bag up the street, and a blender/food processor as well as a rice cooker (that was a facebook freebie, but still).

This is not helping me declutter. :135:
PLEASE use spellcheck. If that is too hard, consider installing the Grammarly (free!) app that will not only spellcheck for you (AND offer corrections!) but also make sure that your sentences are grammatically correct.

You're welcome.
