Jubilee is a jolly joint jammed with jillions of gems! That’s easy for you to say…

I often joke with my kids that English isn’t my first language – gibberish is!  I was slow to talk (using words, in my defense I’m #4 out of 5 kids– so by making grunting noises I had a better chance of being heard!), a slow-to-learn reader and the worst speller ever born.  Thankfully, due totally to my amazing mother who spent tons of time helping me learn to read when I was in 2nd grade – reading is one of my passions.

However, occasionally nonsense still comes out of my mouth.  Here’s a recent example: I stopped at the dry cleaners after work on Tuesday - remember Tuesday when it was over 90 degrees with a heat index of over 100? – and as I was waiting for my dry cleaning another customer walked in and said something to me about how hot it was (don’t we Illinoisans love to talk/complain about the weather!).  Here, verbatim, was my response: “I guess it’s here official summer.”  Since my dry cleaning had just arrived I high-tailed it out of there muttering, “I guess it’s here official summer? What?”.

My best guess is I meant to say “I guess it’s official – summer is here!” or “I guess summer is officially here!” (and the irony is the forecast is for a high of 60 degrees over the next few days – so summer does not seems to have arrived just yet) – but that’s not what came out of my mouth.

I know the woman I spoke to understood what I meant and it probably didn’t even register how stupid I sounded (at least I can hope) – and my little verbal blundering is no big deal – but sometimes I wish I spoke as fluently and effortlessly as others.

Lucky for me, I’m extremely articulate when it comes to describing all the fantastic furniture to be found today (Friday) from 1 to 8 and tomorrow (Saturday) from 9 to 4 at Jubilee Furniture!

one of my volunteers, Tim – inserted corkboard in a frame he and Connie (find a photo of Tim and Connie on the right sidebar) owned – and Connie created this wonderful jewelry display since someone donated some costume jewelry to the store (which simply reinforces a constant Jubilee Furniture refrain – all together now – “You never know what you might find at Jubilee Furniture!” said in a sort of sing-song-y way, of course!)  Every amazing necklace, pin and set of earrings is yours for the fantastic price of 25 cents* each!

And that, dear reader, answers today’s “What’s ‘new’ at Jubilee Furniture?” question.

May you know how much I care and God loves you today and always!  And that’s no nonsense!

*plus 8% sales tax :-)
