Well...its a beautiful sunny day....and my first day off of 42 days working straight (yup I said straight!!)....I work as a Town Lifeguard. How excited I am to be heading out in a few minutes to my local favorite thriftstore .....I haven't been there since June!!!  Great bargain and I snatch them all up ...either to stock pile for my winter reading or to post here if they are great books but don't interest me. 

Hopefully my bookshelf will be updated with some exciting reads for PBS members this afternoon!!!  Have a great day all!

I am so tempted to go back again today and see if they restocked the shelves with anything good........but my poor house is groaning at the thought of more books.

I was a lifegurad also, but I worked at the Old Greenwich town beach at Todd's Point.  I have to say that was the worst job I ever had --all I wouldf do was work my shift, come home & sleep till the next day--the sun used to make me exhausted.

LOL...I have worked there too!!  Isn't that shack sooo disgusting?  I balance out the exhaustion issue with the awesome tan!
