Quick update today. It was a beautiful day to be out and about in Woodhaven -- and we took advantage of the weather and enjoyed a day in the park. On the way home, driving along Park Lane South, we passed by a garage sale on 87th Street. We've seen this garage sale in our travels many times before -- but had never stopped until today. And we were real glad we did!
The garage sale is the hobby of Woodhaven resident Benny -- a Vietnam Vet and former sanitation man. He explained to us that over the years he literally "crushed treasures" in the back of his garbage truck -- and quite often wished he could bring some of the stuff home. Now he has a garage and he uses it to sell off some of the things he's collected over the years.
However, he's not in it to make money -- instead, he enjoys hanging out in his garage, listening to some good music (pumping out of a pair of old large speakers) and chatting with whoever comes by. Old televisions, computer equipment, vinyl records -- Benny's got a nice collection of stuff to browse through. So if you're passing by 87th and Park Lane South, pull over and take a look.
