Saturday began with a visit to the local Wittmann Flea Market which runs every Saturday and Sunday 52 weeks per year. Tom sent me a message about 8 am advising if I wanted a ride he was leaving at 8:30 am, and true to form Tom was in his car waiting just outside the Newell when I exited the coach.
It takes about 3 minutes to drive to the Flea Market from Tom's home.....it is right at the intersection of SR-60 and Center Street and is held on approximately 5 acres of vacant land right across the street from the local water company. Tom and I have pretty specific interests which essentially revolve around good quality used tools. On this Saturday I came across nothing I could not live without, but Tom found another 1/2" drive ratchet along with a 6" extension.....the seller was asking somewhere north of $8 for both pieces, but Tom got him to accept $6 for both.
On the way home Tom suggested we take a 'quad' ride........he has a few Kawasaki quads in his garage, which have 5 speed automatic transmissions. There are dirt roads, and paths that wander for miles over the local landscape. You can literally ride for hours and never see pavement. We spent over an hour riding from 'here to eternity' before arriving back home around 11 am. I have no idea where we went, or how we got back home as I was completely disoriented most of the time, however, at one point Tom stopped and pointed to the northeast......we could see the upper portion of his enormous Newell garage.....it is amazing how far away you can see his garage!
I needed a haircut in the worst kind of way so TLE and I decided to drive into Surprise to the local Supercuts around noon time where I encountered a long line. Since we were next to the local Fry's supermarket she decided to do her grocery shopping whilst I waited for my haircut. After that was done we headed to a nearby Autozone where I picked up a gallon jug of Simple Green which I will use to power wash my radiator, and a can of Mother's Mag and Aluminum polish which will be used to polish up my ALCOA rims.
We got home in time to watch the end of the annual Army - Navy football game......Army came in having lost the last 14 games to Navy, and they were determined to end that streek, which they did winning a close contest 21-17.
We spent the evening relaxing.....TLE reading, and me watching mindless TV.....thanks for stopping by!
