While we were at the Salvation Army this past weekend they had a Gospel concert and offered free food, which I thought was cool, but Marv was annoyed at as they blocked the driveway in the parking lot where he was loading up a couch he purchased for 1/2 price for $32.50.

The choir had good harmony and was very energetic and inspiring and Marv commented that the bugaboo that was going on was too loud.

I was thinking to myself he would be fine if they had had been playing a banjo, a mouth harp and a moonshine jug as it would have reminded him as his hootenannies that were common in our hometowns (that and listening to crickets and grass grow) and told him I disagreed and really like it and he needed to lighten up.   I could tell he was trying, but there was still the stiffness in his jaw that wanted to go on a redneck verbal rampage; I am only glad I as there to prevent it.

Marv toted the couch home and despite being on oxygen didn’t wait until I or anyone else go there and had is almost all the way in the door when I got to his house after stopping for gas.

While the couch, which was a green paisley, was a good buy for the price as it was in great condition and I am sure would class up his place and a much better couch than the dogs has been chewing on, Kyle was aghast when he saw it and said “It is a Grandma couch!  You would only find this in nursing homes; I have seen the same couch in nursing homes!”.

I really couldn’t debate the point too much as he did have a point; I do think it was similar to a nursing home where he visited at a child to read to the elderly when he was in grade school.   Even so, still a good deal.
