George 2, because one day is not enough

I had the great honor to meet George Carlin just a few years ago. He did a book signing at Copperfields, in advance of a Luther Burbank show. In fact, after that trip was when he entered re-hab..always thought a bender in Napa might have put him over the brink. That or the crack...but, really, he was such a nice man! OMG..the things people will say to a famous man, it was fun just to stand on line and hear him interact. He told the teenage boy in front of me that he ought to lighten up a little. I think the kid was in awe. I mean, George f-in Carlin. In person. In Petaluma. When it was my turn, he called me Butterfly Girl because of a barrette I had in my hair. I think I made some crack to him about the mute boy before me..I don't really remember..I too was in awe.
Here's a link to one of my all time favorites, the differences between Football and Baseball..classic!

Friday Finds 001

A great love of mine..a hobby, a passion, a time and money killer..whatever you want to call it, but I love to find second hand treasures. My mom and aunts and grandma..etc..are all lifetime junkstore junkies..and I've been passed the torch. So, I thought I would start a weekly feature, showing off some of the goodies I find during the week..or, if it's a slow week, we can go into the archives (ie my frontroom! :)) These are my treasures from yesterday's thrift shop stop..I spent a whole $11.64.

I got a set of cute japanese stoneware dishes, two mugs, two lil plates and two dinner plates..love the turquoise color on the rim!..and I found this cutie pie little squirrel bud vase I splurged on..it was a dollar!

This is the center of an awesome linen tablecloth..and map of New Zealand! I had to have it because the whole border features all of the birds of NZ...love it!

and this pile..well, even the clerk at the store thought I had a very "interesting" selection. I love these sale tags, about 20 of them for 20 cents..I'll be using these for sure! I also found a stack of 5 x 7 index cards for 60 cents..and a gift for me friend Mandy..a set of Wil E Coyote rubber stamps for 75 cents. All in a days thrift...
