Glen Cove- Scottdale “Moving Sale

Returning from a staff development meeting I pulled into an expensive new subdivision near where I work. A selection of items was neatly arrayed in the two-car garage of this relatively new home. On one table were some neatly folded cotton slacks, shorts and a selection of Tommy Hilfiger shirts. On another table were a coffee grinder, a nose hair trimmer, an empty laptop case, a few caps and a collection of magazines with JFK Jr. on the cover. About a dozen framed prints and painting leaned against the wall of the garage. One painting was an imitation of a Frida Kahlo self-portrait. On a bakers rack were a few books including a guide to Gay and Lesbian films, William Bennett’s “Book of Virtues" and a biography of JFK Jr. Also for sale were several queen size sheets and a dust ruffle. Inside the home they were selling a brown sofa and matching chair.
I bought a framed print of a poster of a cattleya sknneri from the New York Botanical Garden. I needed the frame for one of my roadside memorial photographs.
