Wow! I am just back from a lovely vacation in Arch Cape, Oregon. While the weather was abysmal, it was terrific to see my parents. Here they are in front of Jack’s Thrift Store in Arch Cape. Jack is 89 years old and isn’t married, so “what else does he have to do except run this thrift store?” He was a delight and so was his store’s assortment of stuff! Military strength duct tape! Grinders for razor clams! A bunch of t-shirts with fake college names and mascots on them… sample t-shirts from a screenprinting shop, and a great bargain at $2 each if you ask me. I am the proud owner of a “Rhodes College, home of the Bobcats” t-shirt, which will hopefully confuse as many people as possible. I also now own pins that say “MOOSE PICNIC” and “STOP AT TWO”. What a haul!
