This Bud's For You

Has this ever happened to you?  So you're out yard saling on a Saturday morning and you pull up to a house to find the seller is someone from your past!  That happened to Dave this weekend while we were out making the yard sale rounds.  We pulled up to the house and there was this big, burly gentleman in the driveway.  When he turned around, it was none other than Dave's old high school football coach!  Dave and the coach reminisced about high school days and caught up.  The coach and his wife were in the process of moving to a new house closer to his current school.  Hence the yard sale.  He told us to look around and if there was anything we wanted, we could have it.  My sights honed in on this old wooden Anheuser Busch beer crate.  The coach's wife wasn't sure if he would part with it since it had been with him since his college days.  But he gladly sent it on to a new home.  The crate is now sitting in front of our fireplace with a basket of conch shells and a pot of rosemary from our container garden.  I'm sure quite different from the coach's old college days!
