Saturday Fleas.....

Real Saturday was our last full day here at 'Newell House' in Wittmann's land, but it was also time for the Wittmann Flea Market!  This is one of our favorite flea markets, and when ever we are in town on Real Saturday we feel compelled to make the 5 minute run over to 'downtown' Wittmann and see what the offerings are.  You will recall I am in the market for a 15/16th half inch drive socket to be used, hopefully never, to remove the vaunted gear drive shaft for my speedometer.  We headed over with Tom about 8 am, and as it turned out I found exactly what I needed for one dollar.

I spent parts of the rest of the day putting stuff away, and organizing the trailer for VW insertion later in the afternoon.  In between my work spurts I watched NBA playoffs......I'm not really sure why they have this 'first round' pitting teams that barely made the playoffs against really good teams.  I think almost all the series are sitting at 3 games to zero, or 2-1 with the week teams really having no chance of advancing.  Doesn't make for very interesting basketball when it seems the results are pretty much foreordained based on the pairings.....anyway, that's my two cents, and I'm sticking to it.

There is not much to report about the rest of the day except around 3:30 I dumped the tanks, and we put the VW in the trailer for our 190 mile trip to Yuma Sunday.  Then around 4:30 pm we joined Tom and Darlene for a drive over to a local LDS church member's home for a silent auction and dinner.....the youth of the church are raising money for a summer trip.  The food was prepared 'Chuck Wagon' style using Dutch ovens to cook biscuits, gravy, meat and some great mashed potatoes.  The silent auction was a great success.....I think they had about 200-300 people in attendance from the local LDS Ward, and other local citizens.

We were home by 8:30 and due to the impending rain TLE and I quickly pulled up the awning mat before it got wet, and I disconnected the sewer and water hoses, so all we have to do Sunday morning is put away the step, and unplug from the electrical.

Thanks for stopping by!
