The World's Largest Garage Sale is quickly approaching, and so is summer! Take the time this Saturday to grab some items that you'll need to make the summer fun. I thought long and hard about what I'll be looking for Saturday. Here are just a few of my must-haves:

  • American Flag t-shirt. It says, "I love my country, and I'm afraid of suits." Plus you can wear it to our 4th of July concert in downtown Cedar Rapids!
  • Lawn Chair. Is there anything they can't do? Use them on your porch, in a parking lot, in your living room or as their name suggests, on the lawn.
  • Kids swimming pool. This is great if you have young children like I do. It also works if you don't. Don't be embarrassed to put your feet down in a kids pool on a hot summer day.
  • Lava Lamp. They're retro and they light up a room. Like your grandpa after eating too much cabbage.
  • Apron with humorous saying on it. Wear it in the kitchen or wear out back when you BBQ. Preferably one that suggests you can't "handle the meat".
  • Lightsaber. The tool of a real Jedi. Impress your friends and co-workers with your saber-wielding skills. Swat bugs away from family members. Light up a room should you lose power during a storm. Save the universe. Is there anything it can't do?
