My blog has a new design and title, but its mission continues: to document the strange and marvelous array of things that appear at our town dump’s swap shop, where locals browse and gab, share and swap, unload and load up. And where Harry Belafonte’s voice is always singing, Day O.
My memoir about our family’s move to Cape Cod, which describes the activities of the Orleans Gift House, is being reworked and polished. When the grey winter weather hits in November, you will find me at our offices on Beach Road, slaving away.
Whenever I imagine walking into a bookstore and seeing, “Gift From the Dump” on the jacket of a book, I start to laugh. I hope that’s a good sign. Estimated Pub date: 2014.
