** for those who have not been to a Blue Tape Sale (or other sale), the unwritten rule regarding the line at the door is:  if you get there before the sale starts, please leave some sort of marker (soda can, a pen, an unopened box of CheezIts (to give to us upon entry) ~ a small item to mark your place in line.  At that time, you may go back to your car and hang, read the paper, sleep lalala, but may not leave the area or you’ll lose your spot in line.  Know not where that rule started, but it did, and as my Camp Fire Girl leader used to say, “that’s the way the weenie wiggles”.  Yes, she did.

peace out from BT Basecamp,
