Carpe Diem is not an acronym…
I went on a quick road trip to Idaho, and in between helping my sister pack and watching my niece, I was able to checkout local thrift stores. I found a couple of awesome skirts and purses at St. Vincent de Paul’s and Idaho Youth Ranch. The D.I. (Deseret Industries) in Twin Falls and Boise had a great selection of stuffed animals (including beanie babies, puppets, Eric Carle’s The Hungry Caterpillar and Olivia the pig) and they ranged in price from 50 cents to $1 a piece.
My day trip to Burley was a bust. Although, the trip wasn’t in vain as somewhere along I-84 (between my grandparent’s farm, east of Hazelton, and the Traveler’s Oasis) I spotted a curious sight. I saw a man walking a goat with a saddle bag. On a leash. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to stop and take a picture, but I did some digging. Turns out Steve Wescott and his goat, Bad Leeroy Brown, are traversing the US (Seattle to New York) to raise money for Uzima Outreach and Intervention.

Three cheers for those operating on a different frequency.
