I don’t know what I was thinking when I agreed to drive an hour down to the city and browse through the Flea Market with a few of my friends yesterday. The weather man has been telling us all week what a hot and humid week end was coming up, but I must not have thought things through clearly when I accepted the invite.
All and all I’m glad that I went, it was fun and each of us found several items that we picked up for dirt cheap that we are all very happy about, although most of the items at this particular Flea Market were more upscale than the local Flea Market that we have here in our town. A lot of antiques and collectibles were to be found, rather than a bunch of junk left over from a previously held yard sale and isn’t worth 10 cents and the time to look through. There was live music playing in one corner of the lot and several food vendors selling hamburgers and hot dogs, which we all devoured in the shade of the few trees that were located on the lot, and lots of bottled water was guzzled through out the day, trying to keep ourselves hydrated and cooled down from the 90 degree heat that was bogging everyone down.
I’m so glad that the air conditioning was working good in my car on the way home, sometimes it doesn’t seem to cool the entire car down very well, today it was running very nicely, for the drive home.
