Festival of the Turning Leaves/Book Sale/Carpet Cleaning/Mess Week.
So I knew something was up when I saw cutout letters and huge pieces of paper lying around.
Am I Evergreen? Actually, I'm annoyed that all of this stuff is on my floor.
So first my Staff started working on the Float. Last year they had the Floatiest of All Floats, but this year they thought they would be Rebels and ignore the Festival theme. (The theme was Remember the Golden Oldies, but no one could agree on what a Golden Oldie was, so they gave up. Too much hard thinking.) Then they got super-rebellious and decided to
Anyway, once they got the preliminaries for the Stolen Float underway, they decided to set up the Humongous Book Sale.
For some reason the AABs were all excited when this sign was the first one out of the box:
This would have been helpful, except for the fact that the Very Nice Volunteers who showed up to help set up the sale really needed the signs that said stuff like fiction, nonfiction, VHS, etc. so that they could put things in the right places.
Luckily they found the signs before real Mayhem ensued. (You've never seen mayhem like Festival of the Turning Leaves/Book Sale/Carpet Cleaning/Mess Week Mayhem!)
So the Book Sale got set up, thanks to the efforts of many Volunteers and Staff:
AAB Miss Shirley found lots of Stuffies that were put up for adoption during the sale. Here they are looking cute and adoptable:
Now, please take special note of the Stuffie on the bottom left of the picture. One of my ABs (oh wait, I only have ONE of those) took it upon herself to harass me with that Stuffie. This was uncalled-for behavior, and I made my displeasure known:
See my displeasure?
Okay, I think I'd better pause my telling of Festival of the Turning Leaves/Book Sale/Carpet Cleaning/Mess Week right now. My pawpads are getting sore from all the typing and I really really need a snack.
PS The harassing Stuffie, and most of his friends, have been adopted by loving families.
