Walking and Shopping (a.k.a. the Pack-O-Fun Gang)...

Today Laura Belkin came to visit Sheila and I. She had went down to Asheville not too long ago and had taken with her, in her SUV, some of Sheila's stuff. She and her mother also embarked on a mission of retro-fitting our apartment with all that was missing. So it was very much like Christmas! Lots and lots of much needed presents.

After we had gotten everything in order, we had decided to go for a walk. We didn't really have a plan of where we were going, just that we were going to go for a walk. Half way down the block, we discovered an old dresser which I removed the hardware and put in a basket I found next to the dresser. Laura found a computer screen. Another block and we found a table, which Sheila and I snatched up! It needs a little love, but it's beautiful and perfect for our apartment.

The rest of the night we had a new purpose: Find treasure in the curb-side trash!

We ended up finding lamps, books, tables, hinges, door pulls... all sorts of goodies. Laura Belkin even found a piece of wood which she carried with her during our walk over the Williamsburg bridge.
