Feeling better so we headed to the thrift store and the park

Eliot, Ben, and Elaina don't get out of the house as much as the other children so I loaded them up as well as Lyn and we headed to the thrift store. I found some great toys for under $2.00 total for my classroom and my EI job. Lyn made a great find too... a Monkees album. And Ben found a one eyed purple elephant. Now we need to find a record player. I used to have a couple of albums by them but along the way and many moves I have lost them. I ran into a friend from church that I haven't seen in a while. And we ran into Tracie at the thrift store who we see all the time since she is a neighbor. Matter of fact she was walking by with a chicken last night and showed it to the kids since I just happened to be sitting outside. Yes, she had a live chicken. It was rather pretty. It was found in Hoover by a friend and Tracie gave it to her mother who keeps chickens. May she lay many eggs...

After the thrift store we played at Buck Creek Park for a while and then headed home. On our way we passed by a house with a rather large Halloween decoration. A rod iron GIANT spider. It was beautiful. I am sure the owner of it is proud and wishes it could be displayed all the time. And all of that before noon....
