we go around looking at garage sales usually on saturday mornings. My daughter little mr and grandma. We try to find toys, clothes and whatever we think we can use. We started out around 9.30 trying to get out the door early. We got to the third garage sale and my daughter paid for her items while I was still looking. Next minute little mr pops up and yells out. Grandma we are finished time to go. I think he knows his grandma who loves shopping and looking around. We all laughed. He made our day.
