We have cleaned out the closets and shelves to help our son raise money to go to Europe for his Senior Class trip. If you are in the area, please come by as we will have lots of collectibles to include: Disney, Star Wars, Lego Bionicles, Hot Wheels, Speed Racer, DVDs, books, video games, software and more. It will be at 22880 Wren St in Apple Valley, CA on Oct 15-17, 2010 from 8am to 2pm.
If you are unable to come by and would still like to help, please consider sponsoring Jesse on his trip. Thanks to those of you that have already sent money. He is close to covering his first installment due on October 24th.
Well, another month has passed and I haven’t felt all that inspired to write a blog post. I used to try and update this thing weekly, but Twitter and Facebook get more attention. Jesse is still raising money for his trip to Europe. We drove to Barstow the past two weekends to clean up the yard at my brother/mom’s place. The first weekend we worked 8 hrs and hauled off 3 truckloads of tumbleweeds and branches. It also happened to hit around 105 that day so we were a might bit tired when we finished. This past Saturday, we were able to finish the job and hauled two more loads to the dump. We managed to finish before the heat set in and even stopped to enjoy lunch at our family favorite Rosita’s run by my good friend Genaro.
Now we are looking to hold a yard sale, so we will be pouring through all our belongings to determine what stays and what goes. It’s been 5 years since we moved in, so we definitely have some stuff that can be sold. If you are in the area the weekend of October 15-17th, be sure to stop by and buy some stuff. Jesse will be parting with some of his Star Wars collectibles and the countless Lego Bionicles he has accumulated. We are also going to clear out the DVDs and video games too. Hopefully, we will raise enough to pay for most of his Europe trip. That’s about all from here. Hope you are having a great fall and that the holiday season ahead is full of joy.
