USlim Rana|es "Home Country" The yard sale The hassled, red-faced man cruising the neighborhood Satur- day morning in the pickup truck is good o1' Bert, of course. It's a Sat- urday in summer, which means only one thing in our part of the 'country - yard sales. That's why the charming lady riding next to him, his wife, Maizie, was wearing a big grin. "There's one Bert," she said: "On the right. Pull over and park." It took Maizie almost 20 min- utes to work her way up the drive- way. There were three boxes of paperback books to go through first, then a shelf full of various knobs. "I'll ask them what these knobs are for," Maizie said. "Don't do it," replied Bert. "If you have to ask, we don't need any." What Bert forgot to say was that he didn't want to admit to the Johnsons, whose yard sale this was, that he didn't know what those knobs of theirs actually did. After two paperback books, there was a little stack of doilies to go through. "We don't need doilies," Bert said. "Hush!" said Maizie. "People will think you aren't friendly." Then she spotted the |amp. It was only five bucks, and it was a golden brown like a big fat vase and had a nice amber shade on it. "Oh Bert," Maizie said. "It's a lot like the one we used to have. Remember that one? It used to sit on the end table closest to the door to your den. I really miss that lamp. Let's get this one, Bert. It'll remind us of the one we used to have, OK?" "It is kinda nice," Bert agreed. Maizie bought it and Bert loaded it in the pickup, along with the new ironing board, game car- tridge for the grandkids, plant pots for the geraniums, dishes for Maizie's dish collection, a serving spoon holder from Niagara Falls, and a five-gallon milk can to put magazines on. When they got home and were unloading, Bert noticed Maizie's initials on the bottom of the new table lamp. Didn't the Johnson's buy this from them in their yard sale about 10 years ago? Oh well, nothing shines like a new lamp, and Bert might be tired of yard saling, but he is still gentle- man enough not to spoil it for Mai- zie. Sponsored by: .
