My junking went well, but I discovered that I am not a big junker - certainly not on the same level with the Junk Diva. She has an eye for junk and can see the beauty in what it might become. Me, well, I will just let the Diva fix 'er up and then I will buy.
We drove to El Reno pulling a 20' horse trailer/moving van. Downtown El Reno was pretty funky as Okie downtown's go. On the edge of the downtown area was an old building filled with junk. The junk dealer was an older woman who was going out of business. She was interesting and entertaining all by herself. With dyed black hair and more make-up than Mimi from the Drew Carey show, she was a sight. She seemed to use "dammit" and "ass" often in her conversation which I found quite endearing and funny. At first, entering the old building and seeing all the junk was exciting, but then it became overwhelming. It made me feel like I need to go home and clean house or in this case, clean out the barn too. I did buy some old frames, a chair, an old camera, a metal table, and a few other odds and ends. The Diva bought all sorts of old furniture that needed lots of love. Jesses, Lindz, the Hunk Junk and I loaded it into the horse trailer/moving van while the Diva picked and pointed (she is the Diva). When all was said and done, we ate a late lunch at Arby's (puke). Unfortunately, I was starving and ate the whole roast beef sandwich.
Serious heartburn reminded me of my mistake all night long. The good part was being with the Diva, Jesse, and Lindz who are always a riot. I'm glad I went, I am happy with my buys, I would do it again, but it is not my thang. Sorry, I forgot to take any photos - gettin' old ya know!
