You haven't experienced a swap meet until you experience the animal and ANYTHING  swap meet West of Albion.    We loaded our trailer and hooked onto the truck camper and arrived at 9:30 pm on Friday night.  We got into the spot that Nick had reserved for us and them.   After getting set up we bedded down in the truck camper.  We took the large bed and the GUESTS slept on the dinette booth.  Shelly said she didn't sleep for 2 reasons.  One was I had put a nylon sleeping bag on the bed and she kept slipping and afraid she was going to be fast asleep and slide off and BOOM hit the ground, and the other reason was well cause she was worried MAGGIE which is there Blue Heeler mother to be dog, would make a mess on the floor ( or even start having her puppies--cause she is that close to giving birth ) Anyway the night was short as we got up at 5am and started putting things out.  There were plenty of shoppers already out shopping with of all things FLASHLIGHTS.   Yes I said flashlights.  I'm tellin you,  you
 have not experienced life till you have went to this swap meet.  You have to start early cause it is over by 12 or 1 o'clock.  And the animals,  you would not believe.  Snakes, turtles, dogs, cats, rabbits, goats, birds, chickens, cows, pigs, and animals that I didn't even know what they were !   There are also plants and a lot of anything garage sale items.

        waiting for customers

So that was our day on Saturday at the flea market
From the flea market we went to Nick & Shelly's  and worked on washing & polishing their camper.  That is a lot of elbow grease but WOW it sure looks nice.   I will post a picture another time.
Until next time
Kent & Martha
