Don't laugh! I know that there are others out there that are too. Let me just define stalking to clear the air. Stalking: the harassment of other people due to following them. Did you read that? FOLLOWING OTHER PEOPLE!
I just can't help myself. I must admit, every night before I go to bed, in the morning and several times through the day I check the blogs that I am following. I get so excited when they have a new post! It is like a high for me.
There are too many blogs that I get my fix from to list, but here is a few: Theresa, Mindy, Amy, Cathy & Deidra, Patti, and the birthday girl herself, Debbie. I stalk over 20 blogs a day.
The worst part is that I even get excited about being stalked myself! That is WEIRD! Come on people I know that there are those of you out there that feel the same way. I need you support. So, if you are a stalker too and or if you like to be stalked, please let me know. I need to know that I am not in this alone!!!
By the way I think that I have even contaminated my husband, David. That is right. Just click on his lttle name here & it will take you to HIS BLOG. My business partner Alisha also has a blog, as well as big girl McKay. You should stalk them too! LOL!

Anywho, the day stared out good and progressively got better. We went here and there finding a few little odds and ends. Then we went to a little antique store that was on our way home. There we found a GREAT little garden ferris wheel. The next stop was the best stop of the day. Alisha said that she had been driving through town and saw some junk outside of this store and thought that it might be a thrift store of sorts.
Well, as we approached the place where she had previously scoped out some treasures there was a sign outside reading "Vergil's Electric". It looked like a store.
At least that is what we thought. As we pulled up we saw an older gentlemen on the telephone in the front window. When he saw us checking out the goods he came outside. He ask, "Can I help you ladies?" Alisha replies, "Well sir, we were wondering if this was a thrift store". Virgil (Well that is who I assume he is, but you know what happens when you assume) states, "No Hun, this is my house". Can you just say, AWKWARD! He did say that he was wanting to get rid of a few things and we could get out and look. Well, you know the rest.
We bailed out of the car like a coon dog on his first hunt. (Slobber and all!) Much to our surprise we had found a GOLD MINE!!! We went into his little work shop on the side of his "home", only after he told us that he was gonna tear it down. I believe that the angels in Heaven rejoiced at the great things that we found in there. Then as we scanned the shop Alisha said, "shut up" because that is always what she says when she is excited about a fab find, "check out those fixtures". They where thebomb.com!!! I said well, "ask Virg how much". Can you believe it. here we are at some man we never meets house and I am giving him a nickname. Alisha couldn't believe it either. She got so cracked up about it that she could not even ask.
Finally, she got it together and ask Virg"how much". He replied back with a great story about them coming out of and old church. We where in love! With the fixtures, not Virg. Needless to say they are property of M2 now along with a few other finds from "Vergil's Electric".
I will just put it this way. Alisha has third row seating and there was only room for the two of us! Oh, happy day! It was one GREAT junkin' day!

I do know this ... M2 is in full swing and we are junk and creating! We do need to get the bug to motivate us a little more. The coffee bug that is! Isn't this thing just thebomb.com? I LOVE IT! I saw it in Warrenton and just feel in love with it!
Alisha and I love a lot of the same things and one of them is COFFEE!!! When we are doing a show we just cant live without! That is why I am thinking that this will be one of our main hang outs in the fall. That is right ladies and Cat Daddy. M2 is on the band wagon! WE ARE GONNA BE SET UP AT ANTIQUE WEEK IN THE FALL! We are busting at the seams with excitement. We hope you will be too!
Peace, Junk & Coffee!
