Post 236: Around Town

I have to admit I am quite the home body/recluse/hermet or what you will. I can go weeks without leaving the house (except for the occasional grocery run). But, now that I have a baby I feel the need to get out more. To socialize you do with pets so they dont act crazy every time the wind blows...ha. Plus he LOVES seeing new people.So lately I have been making an effort to see the sights and do things around this town. I have lived here for nearly 5 years and I am just starting to introduce myself to the community. Lame right? A couple weekends ago we hit up the Moss Avenue Sale. Which, I thought was just going to be a normal neighborhood garage sale (locals would say I'm clueless).
It ended up being quite nice. A lot of antiques, neat sights, and food vendors in a historic part of town. The homes were beautiful. Too bad I can't say the same for my photography skills.
The antiques were fun to look at (and dream about owning). We ended up talking to a guy who used to be a part of the Blues Society. (The Husband is a HUGE Blues Buff/Fan) We even picked up a few throw back posters for a dollar a piece. Not to shabby.

We didnt go home with much because we were not quite prepared. But believe me, I will be there next year!
