Time OUT for Bad Behavior!

Not punishment for bad behavior, time out to get up to a little before summer passes Helen by! 
I'll be enjoying the ride...

NO boat needed! Now THAT is some strong foil!

Taking in the sights...

The matador would have to wait., Somebody had just done something ingenious with a wooden pallet and he had to get a snap of it for Pinterest. 

And getting...
                                                   attention.

You thought I was going to say getting lei'ed, didn't you?
Have a great weekend - back with some pics next week... just in time to take you all along on

Yes, Helen's life IS too exciting to be believed, isn't it?

    I'm green with envy or illness just imagining what you must be doing this week to prevent summer from passing you by.

  5. Hello Helen:
    Does the world's longest yard sale stretch to Europe? If so, we shall definitely see you there.

    They really do not make aluminium foil today the way that they used to, do they?

    Enjoy the summer whilst it lasts!

    1. I am making the most of it - right now watching young men swimming for gold while catching up on internet time drinking a glass of Merlot. I can survive without foil for another day!

    1. So true Holly - I bet you'd find something amazing to do with a stack of pallets. Have you ever tried to work with them, though? They are hard as stone!

  9. Enjoy yourself and get into as much mischief as you can and still stay out of jail. Lei and be lei'ed if you can.
    Every year we say we are going to do the sale but never make it. Someday.
    Enjoy, Ginger

    1. This could be your year, Ginger! That's how I started, just thought - it's 20 miles away, why not go look? Now we are regulars and were even in the running to be featured by the HGTV program on it once.

    1. Karen! Just go down 60 to 120 and turn left or right (I suggest right - head south, the stuff is funnier). And you are ON the WLS yourself! You are too close not to go - it's like a living character study, I promise.

  15. I WANT to go to the worlds longest yard sale!!
    Now where can I get myself some Alcoa wrap??

    1. Wish you were on your way on a magic carpet of Alcoa! Am actually excited already to go to the WLYS!

  16. I feel totally ripped off - they always told me it was a flying CARPET, not flying aluminum foil! I think everyone should commute to work like that woman. I look forward to seeing the longest yard sale photos!! If there's a matador on one side I wouldn't be surprised to see a Godzilla on the other. It should be so much fun!! Wish I could join you.
