We had a couch to get rid of. No, more of a big, bulky, heavy blue plaid hide a bed we inherited and couldn't use. Phone calls offering the beast to various charitable organizations resulted in no takers. "We have no one willing to pick up a hide a bed. They're too big, too bulky, too heavy." That's a sample of what we heard. Needless to say, their protests didn't Fall On Deaf Ears. Our sentiments exactly.
And so it went. For a while, we suspended our quest to find 'old blue' a home. First we set him against the wall in our family room, he was later relegated to the garage.
Then, well, Fall hit. Winter wouldn't be far behind. Once the temperature dropped dramatically, the couch could easily Fall Into Danger of being infested with all sorts of varmints seeking shelter from the storm.
Not one to let this particular item on his to do list Fall Through The Cracks, my husband took action. On his own (take that, no one willing to pick it up) he loaded the monstrosity into his truck.
"I'll be back after this is delivered." With that, he took off to make the same rounds in person he'd traveled by phone.
Admiring, though not sharing his optimism, I wished him well. Imagine my surprise when he was back within a half hour.
Who knew, the first place he stopped, a supervisor would Fall Head Over Heels. Okay, so it wasn't exactly love at first sight from what I understand, but she sure did like it when this donation was delivered, unloaded and wheeled into her showroom.
So there you have it. When all else fails, take action. Which is what I plan to do with one of my books starting tomorrow.
In keeping with our current season, the price for Saturday In Serendipity will Fall to 99 cents, from October 23-27, in fact.
Saturday In Serendipity contains three full length stories of love rediscovered.
Three Strikes Thursday - A baseball great seeks to win back the woman he loves.
Two On Tuesday - She wants to revisit her past, he wants to become her future.
One Fateful Friday - She buried her husband in the afternoon then slept with his best friend that night.
Oh, and that last One even celebrates Halloween...and Thanksgiving...and Christmas.
Oh, and Jannine Gallant's She'll Never Rest will also be on sale for under a dollar. Hers is a ghost story!
It may be too soon, but I'll say it anyway. Happy Holidays!
