Hi All!!!  Well, we were planning to do the Wauseon National Threshers Tractor show in Wauseon Ohio next thurs. the 2l-24th, but my Mom had to have emergency surgery last evening to have gallbladder removed.... So, I am planning to go stay with her after she gets out of hospital on Monday or Tues.. So, we will not be there.

The next show for us then will probably be Howard City at Burley Park Flea Market, which I believe is on the fourth... Trying to get in touch with promoter to see if   it is on the fourth or the Monday right before the fourth... If anyone has heard about Burley dates for sure let me know!!!

Ok, will keep you posted and my mom is doing good!!

Well, what a weekend for weather!!!  When we got to Midland, it was sprinkling. But, it was just light enough that we could get the canopy up and some items for sale that did not matter if they got wet... We just got canopy up and under cover and boy did the rain let loose!!!  So, we got in the motor home and had to wait about two hours before we could finish setting up... Finally, around 8 p.m. we were done...

Then, Saturday  there were wind gusts up to 50 miles an hour, I really believe some of them were worse.
And, then Saturday night when we were putting the sides back up it got a little worse.  Well, thanks to a very nice man and his wife across from us, ( Roger & Willie) we survived.. They gave us 4 ratchet straps and some really long stakes, so we ratcheted from one side of the tent to the other and then Louie put one from middle of tent to ground... And, it saved us!!!!!   thanks to some great neighbors!!

Well, about sales... It was another great weekend!!!!! Louie sold the window cupboard below first thing saturday a.m. to Tonya (one of our loyal customers)... She just loved it, thanks Tonya.. And, I sold the retro looking oak chair below, a beehive, baskets, enamelware, and tons of smalls... Louie also did good with his handmades... So, thanks to all for another great weekend!!   We are deciding today if we are doing the tractor show in wauseon ohio or Allegan...  Will keep you posted
