Too much sun & heat

Yesterday Hut and I went yard saleing(?). We had a great time, but only lasted a couple of hours......it was too dang hot! We got some great deals. I bought a black dress, 9 tank tops (new), a denim skirt, green pair of pants (new), striped top to match pants or jeans and a brand new shirt for my husband($42 price tag still on it). I paid only $7 for it all. I was thrilled. I never get good deals like this. And to find something that fits my husband is a plus (literally, he's a big boy). My black dress (everyone needs one). It has laces down both sides. I'll probably never wear it but it was only $1.
These are 8 of my 9 tank tops (I'm wearing a gold one). I love tanks and believe me as hot as it's been I'm glad I found them. Only $2.
My striped shirt, green pants and denim skirt. The shirt has a green stripe in it that is the same shade as the pants. I don't know why I bought these either, I never go anywhere where I need to dress up. Only $2 for the lot.
Disney Hawaiin shirt. Price tag on it was $42, we got it for $2. Best bargain of the day. Can't tell I was proud of my finds, can you LOL.

We also went to a local celebration in Eagle Lake which is the next town over. Except for the HUGE hotdogs they sold, it really wasn't anything to brag about. They had a few vendors selling wares, most food vendors though. I did buy some crocheted dish cloths (I absolutely love those), 2 sets of necklaces and earrings (handpainted) and some ties for my hair(1 pirate and 1 red,white,blue). My husband bought a confederate flag, but this was the original confederate flag, not the one everyone see's and has a fit about. This original one we actually learned about when we went to St. Augustine. We had actually bought a small version of this while we were there, but in Eagle Lake they had big size to hang outside the house.
This is what the original Confederate flag looks like. I wonder how many people know that. All in all it was a good morning, but couldn't wait to get out of the heat.
