It was a bright and sunny day. Cars were everywhere. I pulled over into a dirt path and parked the car. Entering the old warehouse was difficult. Cobwebs abounded, dust was everywhere. It was the perfect place. I could feel it in my bones. I was going to go home with a treasure that was just what I wanted.
I looked quickly up one shelf and down another, making my way to the dark back corner of a huge room, only lit by dim bulbs and one open door. The building had stood for decades, was loaded with boxes on every shelf, some open, some closed.
It was the Hiway 80 sale. We had been on the road for a few hours, and finally we came to this building.
I turned a corner, wiped away some sweat, And there it was....
A door with windows, chippy and painted, but was it pink?
On the first side it was white. But when I turned it over.....
I asked my husband if he thought we could fit it in our little car.
"No, there's no way". I had to find a way.
There had to be a way, and I was going to find one.
So, I waited. Until he was in another part of the dusty building looking around.
Then I grabbed the door and carried it outside.
Oh I had to have this door!
As I approached the tented area where the girls were waiting to take payments, I asked them,
"May I check and see if I can fit this in my car?"
"Sure you can! We'll help!"
And help they DID!!! I didn't know the backseat of my car would lay down flat....into the trunk!!
They all of them went headfirst into my car, moved some things around, laid that seat back and hefted my new door into the car, strapped it in, and even repacked the car!!!!
"MARVELOUS!!!"I was now in possession....9/10ths of the law you know!
As I handed them the money for the door, I asked, 'all sales are final, RIGHT??" You know the look and the nod I gave them.... ; )
When my husband finally exited the building with a few find of his own, he couldn't believe that our car was right there...in front of the building with a PINK door sticking out of it!
"Well, I didn't know that back seat would do that!!"
He was actually excited for me!
The girls were so great! Thanks you dears....I'm forever in your debt. And if you need help any time...well I'm sure I'd be delighted to help you out!
Hope you all had a wonderful week!
