The U Turn



You all know what I am talking about,.....

the big ol' U turn that you do, when you see a potential piece on the side of the road!  The one where the kids say, "Mom, don't stop!  You have the fleeting thought that you might be a little crazy, but the pitter patter in the ol thumper starts pittering a little faster, and patttering a little harder, and you just HAVE to stop.  Pull a Uuy and jump out....throw the piece into the car, and live with the consequences of the eye rolls, and husband's jeering when you get home.  And you say....

VOILA!

Here's to finding your next diamond on the side of the road!

This was a uuey find?! I can't tell you how many times I've rubbernecked a pile of trash where I see what appears to be a decent piece of furniture. To date, I have not stopped yet, but this might just convince me to stop. It's perfect!!
