went to the flea market yesterday and didnt come home with much. it was the same the last time. maybe i am burning out on flea markets. or getting too good at it. i can tell if they have anything of interest to me with a glance. then i will go check it out. i know if it is a good price or not from doing this so often.
i look for a bargain. i wont pay too much. i understand the dealers have to make money. some will lower their prices if they want to sell. previously i bought many things for a good price. some things are over priced at any price.
i was looking for cds. i want to add to my play lists. i have a few thousand songs but know i dont have every thing i want to hear. i have about 5 play lists i can listen to all day while driving or working and not have to change it.
i automatically hook my phone up as soon as i get into my car. i dont care to listen to whats on the radio. they play too much junk. i dont like hearing some songs. some people say they listen to every thing. not me. i prefer music i like. too bad i didnt find any good cds at this flea market.
i was talking to an old man. he said the best deals were yesterday. i said i thought this was the first day. he said it is but people were already there the day before and got good deals. he said most sellers want to make sure they cover their stand price. `a lady that over heard our conversation said ‘aint that something. we thought we were here first and you hear people already beat us here’.
i walked thru most of the stands. the temperatures were in the 90s. my feet got tired so we found a bench in the shade and sat down. we rested while watching the crowd mill around. most were older people like us. not surprising for a work or school day.
after leaving the flea market we drove north toward white cloud. i wanted to take a different route home. there was still some water standing in fields from the past flooding. we didnt stop at the casino. we took the two laned back roads til we got back to highway 36.
tomorrow we go to the KU football game. they are predicting rain. maybe we will get a rain check if that happens. or not. i wouldn’t mind seeing another game this year. our star running back wont play this first game. he is suspended. he could be an all American if he plays like he did last year.
i got a second email from a ‘psychic chris’. i moved the first one to the junk mail folder. the second one went there automatically. seems like if this guy was any good he would have known i wasnt gonna read his stuff.
heading to town today to pick up the grand sons. that should be fun.
