I will not be keeping you long today, I know, I sometimes tell you that, then commence to ramble on and on…but today I truly will not be long. I have to get packed for my magnificent adventure. Remember? I am taking the bus to Florida?
This trip will not be a long one… I will be back before most of you read this…this is the trial expedition, just to see how I like traveling by bus. I hope I like it…I would love to go more…ride around and see the USA and not have to do the driving…let the bus folks drive me where I want to go, then rent a car…Grand scheme don’t you think?
I am not the only one who is waiting to see how my trip goes…I met several people while in Terry at their First Saturday Flea Market that are less then comfortable driving long distances too, and had not considered the bus until I mentioned it. So depending on my return report, they may contemplate taking the bus for future travel.
By the way we had a grand time in Terry…I didn’t sell as much as I have in Clinton…Terry is more of real a flea Market, and less arts and crafts. There were lots of bargains …I bought a wicker bed tray…The day was worth it just to get the bed tray. I thought I had bought it just for decoration…I had planned to spray paint it white and place it carefully on the old white iron bed in the back bedroom… with a pretty napkin and a nice china tea cup and saucer. But it has turned out to be a functional item. I drink my morning coffee in bed…and now that I have the bed tray, I am also eating my oatmeal in bed…I feel quite elegant and sophisticated…I must get a prettier bowl for my oatmeal…and a prettier coffee mug too. Maybe I will find one when we go back to Terry the first Saturday in April. We had such a good time we are going back.
There were few booths with crafts, the lady in the booth next to us, had birdhouses, pie safes, benches etc…very nice, But, the most popular booth (craft wise) was birdfeeders made out of old tires…folks were wagging them out of there just a grinning…the feeders were so colorful ….they made you happy just to look at them. I am going to get one if that booth is there in April….would have bought one this time but we were half way back to Edwards when I thought about it again. There was a booth of aprons too…very pretty.
Don’t forget cemetery day March 21.
Love to all, call if you need me.
