The Jason Show went on location this week with his Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure team for a very special episode entitled, the "Mother of all Garage Sales." We spent the month
pestering gathering donations from everyone we know, and then the team took a day yesterday to get it all ready.
At the butt-crack of 3:30 in the morning, we got up and made our way to the set location. Here we are, posing for our first team photo of the season. Notice my pink ribbon shirt?
ten seven two hours the sun finally came up. But that didn't stop some very hard-core garage sale enthusiasts from coming with their flashlights to get the first pick of our treasures.
I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know my team, Team Safe at Second. They have welcomed me with big smiles and open arms. And a lot of laughs.

got out of bed before 2:00 p.m. came to join the good fight. Thanks, Amelia!
Have you ever observed a garage sale crowd from start to finish? I highly recommend it. We had customers from all walks of life, all shapes and sizes. . .
. . .from the pink tights lady. . .
. . . to the omigodthatisthebestmulletihaveeverseeninmylife man.
Such was the clamor to get to our sale that one of our customers committed a heinous hit-and-run:
I was completely prepared to remove the remains of this poor momma squirrel myself. But then the neighbor did it instead.
Perhaps the best thing about our garage sale was that we truly had something for everyone. From literature. .
. . . to housewares, enormous plush animals, and furniture. . .
. . . to frightening toys. . .
. . . to hair accessories. . .
. . . to home decor to make every visitor feel welcome.
This little girl knew exactly what she wanted. . .
. . . and there was even something that my mother-in-law would adore. . .
But wait...Team Safe at Second even offered an "adults only" section, thanks to some very generous donations from our
friends' unidentified individuals' own personal collections:
His and hers.
This, of course, is how all garage sales and good episodes of The Jason Show should end:
With the "Money Shot."
