Treasure Hunting AT a Good Cause

The Presbyterian Church hosted an all-day sale (indoors), petting zoo, baked goods sale today in Bellevue.  Of course the Brocanters went!  The proceeds were for Alzheimer’s research.

We parked our vehicle at a neighboring church lot and were transported across the street to the sale in this:

Cupcake was in one of her ‘bossy’ moods again and hopped right up in the front seat.  The littlest one of us!  The rest of us were forced to ride stuffed together like proverbial sardines in a can in the back.

What does that mean persactly? Jabber inquired, “that you were proverbial sardines?”

Well, sardines are fishes.  They are not, as far as I am aware, proverbial….but it might have to do with proverbs probably, although it could mean something like the proverb of the loaves and the fishes.  Maybe proverbial sardines offer some sort of a lesson to the masses–said lesson might be to eat less?

Oh I don’t know!  We were crammed together in the back of the golf cart, holding on for dear life, the three of us:  Thumper, Jabber and Vanna!

And wouldn’t you know it?  Jabber found the perfect embellishment to her outfit for the day–two boas, one in black and one in white.  Never one to pass up a bargain and especially such a bargain, she scarfed them up for $1 each (pardon the pun here….scarf….scarfed….they are boas?….oh never mind.)

Jabber shared them with Cupcake and Vanna, of course, but only for a little while:

Vanna wore the black boa because, of course, it coordinated with her outfit. She is our DIVA indeed.

And Cupcake….well, I’ll let the picture speak for itself:

“Wait!  Is she trying to impersonate Santa?” Jabber asked…..

No!  She was luxuriating in the luxury of the white boa, Jabber!

Meanwhile, Thumper had made a deal.  Thumper likes deals almost as much as Girlfriend likes deals–but Girlfriend and Sosew were out of pocket again, off on adventures of their own today.  We waited while Thumper negotiated the deal:

Finally, Thumper came out to talk with Vanna about including HER in the deal!  And she did!  Thumper and Vanna each purchased a purple Alzheimer’s T-shirt to benefit the charity.

  Thumper discusses the deal with Vanna and Cupcake.

Finally, we were done.  After our exciting ride TO the event, we decided to walk back to the car, which we did.

Oh….what’s that you ask?  The baked goodies that Vanna has in her lap?

Cupcake bought us some zucchini bread and we ate that YUMMM! and Vanna took home some homemade cinnamon rolls.

It was a fun sale and a good cause.  We were glad we went.
