Tongues were wagging at 7th and Montana on Sunday as Second Hand Tillie, the woman known to be on Perpetual Lookout for a yard sale -- any yard sale -- made the scene intent on finding bargains. "Hooray," I cried, as I watched her Light Blue Prius (CA License #5MDX45) crawl up 7th Street at a snail's pace, "She's back!" True to form, Tillie parked her car in the middle of the street while she slowly, methodically toddled her way over to a nearby light pole to check for signs of a yard sale. "Look at that," cried a man wearing what looked like a lampshade on his head, "That guy is taking her picture ... that's the funniest thing I've seen all day!" I wonder if he'd still be laughing if he knew that both he and his lampshade were featured in my blog on February 17.

Too funny! You certainly come across some unusual characters on the street! LOL

Could it be?
Yes it is!
It's that little old lady from Pasadena that sells cars!

Haha! Wow, she actually parked her car in the street? That's an accident waiting to happen. Be safe, Tillie!

Sounds like you need some new tools of the trade to be less obvious :o)
