Junkin' in North Carolina

Richard and I can't go anywhere without spotting a junkin' opportunity. Even at McDonalds one morning, we chased down a pickup full of furniture and bought it all. yes, he was headed for the dump!! We have a lot of fun, laugh a lot, and believe we really do share one brain!
