I am a little late posting today. I don't suppose anybody noticed. And yes, I have an excuse or two. I have to admit that I did sleep in a little bit and that my wife wanted to leave a little earlier than usual to head out to the flea market. She bought so much she had to take several trips back to the Jeep with her bags and boxes and stuff. But guess what, I even purchased something. I couldn't go home with out this plaque. It is the metal one on the right side of this picture:
It is sad but true. Also, it made me smile so I bought it. The other one had a good saying on it, too, but I only bought the funny one. On the same table was cigarette machine. You stick a blank (filter and rolled paper) in a hole on the side (as shown) and then dump tobacco in the slot. You then grab hold of that lever and pull it around and it stuffs the blank cigarette with tobacco. I quit smoking way over 20 years ago, so didn't see a use for it.
We were late getting back home. It was lunch time and as we were eating there was a knock on the door. It was a census guy saying that a random number of people from the census two years ago were picked for a follow up more in-depth interview. We happened to be one of those picked. To keep from being bothered by the dogs, we went out to the motor-home and talked to him out there. He was quite an interesting fellow and an interview that only took a few minutes stretched into way over an hour or so. There was just so much to talk about and you all know how much I just love to talk. He is now probably trying to make up all that time he lost but we became friends and he said that he and his wife may stop by sometime, or if he is back in the area he will surely stop. Makes me feel good that someone, other than our dogs, likes my company. Then again, maybe it was my wife's company? OK, it was both of us, right? You all have a great day now, you hear?
