Weird stuff from yesterday (or, “Linenette”)

Cardinal and I went to a bunch of secondhand stores yesterday.

I totally want these. I love old religious images, for some reason. Plus, Jesus is rocking the Curly God Method.

$65 apiece, tho. Who has that kinda scratch?

Cardinal playing the glass eagle Elvis guitar. As you do.

Yep. I posted this one on a Facebook group where you show weird stuff you find, and last I looked it had more than 4,700 likes.

I just…

I was enjoying this book till I came across the Kleenex in it. Then I died of death. Speaking of death…

Ded Edz not enjoy dis humileeeashun.

Ded mill howse also annoy

I told Cardinal we had to find terrible outfits for each other at the Goodwill, and he found this lovely T-shirt from TinyTown. What are the chances?

I found him a nice Christmas vest.

He selected the long shorts for me. That shirt reads, “Heartbreaker,” not undertaker.

Afterward, I finally got to go to that distillery. His is the manly pink drink. I think it was a lavender strawberry douche or something. I had a monitor. Goddammit, autocorrect on this phone. By the way, I loved how I killed myself yesterday typing whole blog post on the phone and got 21 freaking comments.

Mojito. I got a Mojito. Geez.

And no creepy clown lollipop pedophile jar.

  1. Guilty as charged on the no comment. And that would be for the past 6 weeks. Just got a cast off my right-hand yesterday, and I’m free at last! I could only “hunt and peck” before and after 8 hours a day of that at work, my comments everywhere have been sparse. And now you know the rest of the story. Lovely post, lovely June.

  2. The lollipop jar would be so cute in your kitchen! Like someone said, a day spent at thrift stores and having drinks sounds like heaven to me.

  4. What a fun day with Cardinal! What are the chances of you finding the TinyTown t-shirt right there in Saginaw, MI. You know that’s a math question, right? And I don’t have the answer. I have found some great things at the Good Will store right in my area. I have friends that have flying privileges with a major airline (headquarters in ATL) and they would fly all over the US just to shop at thrift stores. She had the most beautiful clothes and all were found at GW or thrift stores. Edsel does look like that coyote. Maybe that’s why he attacks other dogs. I think you have gone way beyond the call of duty to post each day while on vacation. The posts have been wonderful. You get a gold star. Remember in elementary school when you got stars for doing your work or attendance. Maybe that was in Sunday School. Enjoy the rest of your vacation and have a safe trip back to NC.

  5. What I wouldn’t do for 25 comments on my blog! I am envious of your well-deserved following.

    Those pics are hilarious. I, too, died at curly God method. Which reminds me, I just got back from Ulta and they no longer stock my Rusk Thickr (I feel like they were cute and removed the ‘e’ but maybe I am wrong and just look like I cannot spell. Feeling too lazy to look it up) shampoo. I almost invested in the curly stuff but wanted to reread your post about it first.

  6. Yes – like Aunt Kathy – I read your blog every day and don’t always comment as it keeps changing my name! sigh. Computer junk I suppose. My grandma had those pictures of Jesus and Mary hanging in the dining room forever – big pictures!

      • Don’t know if it’s still on FB, but there was one that was like “weird stuff in the parents basement” or close to that. Holy buckets people had some really odd/wonderful/scary items down there. I guess our pool table area with the four framed prints of the dogs playing poker looks pretty timid in comparison.

        Also, the office where I’ve done the educational test scoring has a very large print of the dogs playing poker hanging by the small coffee station area, on the way to the lunch room. Back and forth every day seeing that on the wall. Should that be a sign of how we do our jobs?

  8. I went down a rabbit hole to find advice on how to rid yourself of demonic items (that cookie jar). So it should be destroyed, burned or put in the dumpster, which leads me to wonder if everyone with a demonically possessed tchotchke puts them in the dumpster, what the hell is happening at the dumps all over America?
    Honestly, our GW is nowhere near as interesting. Who knew Michigan was so weird?

  11. June and Cardinal’s excellent adventure! What fun you obviously had exploring the thrift stores. The creepy lollipop jar makes me wonder about its history and who thought it was a good idea to purchase it. Was it a wedding shower gift back in the day? Oh, my! Um, thank you for the, uh, uh, “lovely” jar. Did she keep it hidden to only display it when the giver came visit? We’ll never know.

    Hope your excellent adventures continue. Safe travels home whenever you begin the journey south wearing your guns and ammo shirt and plaid shorts.

  16. I actually loved the lollipop jar so much I looked on Ebay for it.

    $59.99!! Of course, one if it’s eyes isn’t cockeyed (no pun intended?) and the nose is intact (no pun intended, again.) That’s a lot of scratch for a creepy jar, but I think I’m putting it on my Christmas list.

    Also, I feel like I’m “Team Cardinal.” Are you noticing any sparks a’flyin whilst together, or while drinking, even?

      • I didn’t mean to like my own comment, fool that I am, but to comment on my own comment, Specifically to share with all of you how much I hold you responsible for what almost came out of my mouth last week. I had served at a funeral for a 24 year old brilliant musician who died of a heroin overdose. I came home and in front of Distinguished, Daughter and Son-in-law exclaimed, “Well that sucked…” and barely stopped in time before I added, “a big bag of donkey dicks!” You guys are saying, “and?” Son-in-law would still be laughing. Daughter and Distinguished while by no means prudes do like their cherished image of me having held onto one last scrap of dignity.

  19. You learn so much about a person going to a secondhand store with them.
    That candy jar has a wink.
    Ded wild Edz and Milhowse. What are the chances of that AND tiny town t-shirt. Wait a minute you were in Mid Michigan and the t-shirt was from the town you moved to North Carolina. That is a little freaky.
    Of course Cardinal picked plaid short for you.
    You should think about going back and getting that outfit and wear it on your next outing. At least for a minute.
    Looks like you had some good fun with him . Good vacation activities for you.

      I looked at the curly god photo and the “mask looking face “on top of the frame stood out this time.

      • The mask-looking face on the frame looks out of place on the religious frame. Mary’s frame doesn’t look as demonic without the scary white eyes, but on closer inspection I realized the white eyes are actually the background showing through. At first and second glance, I thought they were diamond eyes.

  20. That you didn’t buy that clown pedophile jar and bury the damn thing is the travesty.
    I laughed out loud at the Curly God Method. He was Middle Eastern, folks. And not wimpy. I went into a church once that showed a blond Jesus hesitantly dipping a toe in the River Jordan. Gag me with a spoon as we used to say in college.
