Dump Finds And A Win!

Today was a pretty good day at the dump. I got these garden problem solver books.
Did you know that moles blood does not clot so they bleed to death from a slight wound. They suggest broken glass in their holes. I don't like moles but that seems a bit cruel.                                                
 I got the complete first season of ER I never watched the show so all new to me. and the complete first season of Joan of Arcadia which I never heard of so a good find. That is a black frame in the back I will use for Miss Baby's picture to go on our family wall.
 A sales rep came in the store today and dropped off a free sample this is the latest in reusable water bottles. kind of cool it collapses so it can fit in your purse. when it is empty. I am going to give it a try for a few days made in America dishwasher safe.
 I won a fun necklace from two dog pond She has a contest once a week you summit a caption for a picture she displays. I just love her blog I hope you visit.
 This was my winning caption.
 The sun is rising later and later in the morning, I had to take a picture of the sun coming through the trees a bit like an Angel or a dove I think.
We are off to Boston tomorrow for more good news. My brother is coming tomorrow also it has been almost 2 years since I have seen him I am really looking forward to spending some time with him. He is living in Mississippi so it has been awhile since he has been back in the summer he usually comes for Christmas.
I hope everyone remains safe and sound that is in the hurricane's path.

Back when I used to watch TV, ER was my absolute favorite show!
Good luck in Boston. I'll say a special prayer for you, dear friend!
Pug hugs :)

LOVE that necklace. I agree, the shards of glass are just too cruel...poor little moles! Good luck in Boston. I'm glad to hear you're getting a visit with your brother. My brother and I are close and it's such a comfort. Beautiful picture of the sun coming through the trees.
Hugs and prayers!

Congrats on the finds and the wins! Love that necklace! Seems cruel to the moles, but I will be passing it on, my daughter had them chew up through the bottom of her pool, bet she won't think it is cruel. I have used juicy fruit gum to kill them though, effective and much kinder!
