A blessed mishap!

Wow a bit of a scary ride! While traveling on I-81 @ 70mph a slight vibration and then one tire going one way, the other passing us , a bam to the ground and fish tailing to a stop on the shoulder! What happened? Well our dual wheels came off!!!!! Thank the Lord in heaven that we were safe and nobody else was involved! A big thank you to the Virginia State Police ,highway dept and Brown and Son Towing! They loaded us up and took us to Hart's GMC in Salem Virginia. We are now camping out in the parking lot waiting for service tomorrow. We are so thankful that no one was hurt . We actually enjoyed having some down time. We sat in the sun and played frisbee with the dog and took a little walk. Tomorrow is another day, Amen.

Marburger soon to open!

Well we have tomorrow to pull it all together and finish up the booth. Things are going well. Today it cooled down some which made our heads clearer and we got a lot done. We also celebrated Linda Marcov's (Willow Nest) birthday (which was yesterday). The owners of "Leftovers" ( a great shop here near Brenham Texas) made her a pink cake. It was a nice diversion and the cake was good too! Here's a pic of Linda and a few of our booth.

On to the next show!

Well Brimfield is over and it was a great fall show. We headed out Friday night and made it home at 2am. Saturday we unloaded , reloaded, did laundry and re-stocked the camper and today drove to Columbus Ohio for the Country Living Fair! It starts Friday. Bonnie and I work for Stella management setting up the Fair, while Karen works on projects in the camper. We can't wait to see all our CL Fair friends. Our booth is across from the main stage.
If you haven't been to the Fair now is the time to finally do it. If you can't make this one you still have time to plan one to Stone Mountain Georgia next month.

Summer time in Brimfield!

We are back in Brimfield for the summer show! Yes it's hot humid and a few thunderstorms,  but hey that's the same as last year! It's a laid back atmosphere. You can stroll through and look at items and have a little time to think. Don't take too much time though because it will likely be gone . There is still time to come and buy! Hope to see you this weekend!
