I recommend this twice-a-year, weekend warehouse sale in Foothill Ranch. Fri, 8/20-Sun, 8/22

I’m not much on garage sales but inspite of the heat in and outside the warehouse, I go to this sale every year. My particular interest are the informercial products I see on TV but use willpower not to buy, that often appear right here at the sale at greatly reduced prices.  And there’s always a few other chotskies I pick up as well.  Lots of stuff in the $1-$10 range.  Get some, a lot, or all your holiday shopping here, it will save you a fortune.  Beware, no refunds or exchanges. And dress cool. This weekend starting tommorrow (Friday).

Ark of San Juan Cap Animal Rescue-If you can’t adopt, please foster a furbaby, they need your help desperately

2 y/o Pomeranian up for adoption or fosterThe Ark is overflowing! They have no shelter and must depend on foster homes for their animals. They’re having to board some of their animals at Veterinary offices at a huge expense. This is money that could be used to maintain a rescue center, and you know  how frightened these guys are anyway without having to be boarded. I’d take one in a New York minute, and want to SO much, but I’m up to my Condo’s HOA limit.

This little guy is 2 year old Charlie. The Rescue says he’s a wonderful little boy who loves to talk. (LOL! So does one of mine, and always has to have the last word!).  He gets along with other dogs and would do well in a home with another dog as a companion.
