So, it was a l+o+n+g weekend of being housebound with a Wicked Fall Cold. SERIOUSLY! Thurs night to Monday morning without leaving the premises... NO sales, No restaurants, No errands!! I returned to work on Monday. On my drive home I pass by this 'fresh' pile of curbside 'goodies'....(re-creation - I did NOT take the time for a 'photo'... ha,ha!!!!)It was on the opposite side of a fairly busy road, that has no place for pulling over. What to do? I was only a few blocks from our house, so I decided to continue, and then turn around and come back. When I pulled in our driveway, as luck would have it DH was home from work & outside, so I put it in park, jumped out and said 'Get in, you're driving!'. He did as 'requested', though he knew what this meant... and 'that' is never to his liking!! "Where to?" I directed, he pulled over in the exact spot, and it was ALL STILL THERE!!!!! I jumped out, quickly opened each box to make sure I wasn't hauling away anything Really Nasty....
...and to my surprise two of the three were filled with tools! NOT gross greasy/rusty prehistoric relics, but Good, useful STUFF!
Isn't this handle 'the coolest' ?!There were several plastic bags full too. Most looked like old aluminum Pots-n-Pans, but one looked to have wicker & wood (An old Chop Bowl?? maybe??). I grabbed that one. When I opened it at home, there was one wicker basket (to 're-donate') and four wooden bowls... nothing special... Or so I thought!
Upon closer examination, they were ALL Adirondack Bowls, Inc. ! Made - where else- but our town!! I have no idea as to the age or history of this Co., but it is a new search for me!!After a brief scanning of the contents, DH and I started trying to put a story to the reason for the disposal of these items... 'So, what did she do, just put his stuff out by the road without him knowing it?' 'But some of 'her' stuff was there too' 'It is all so clean, it hasn't been stored in a dusty attic or damp basement, and finally disposed of...'
What do you guys think?
Later, I came to the conclusion, it was just a result of The Full Moon!!
