Baby, it’s cold outside! How cold is it! Damn cold! Last night the temperature got down to 34 degrees, and today’s high is only predicted to be 49! But that’s not the worst of it, tonight it’s supposed to go all the way down to 25! I highly disapprove! 🙁
Yesterday morning we were up long before our usual time, because it was Monday, and Monday in this area of central Florida means it’s time for the Webster Flea Market. The flea market covers several acres, and you can find vendors selling all kinds of trash and treasures. Need a vintage Archie comic book, a lid for your Tupperware bowl, a torque wrench, a cast iron frying pan, a box of shotgun shells, or a fishing rod? I know you can find it there, because we saw all that and more yesterday, along with antiques, modern guns, knockoff designer sunglasses, carnival glass, and a lot more that I can’t remember, because who would want to?
Other things I don’t want to remember are the number of women of all ages, shapes, and sizes with tattoos. Apparently they’re very proud of their ink art in this part of the world, because even though it was a cool morning, I never saw so much flesh on display without first having to put a quarter in a slot. Do you realize how many young women had roses tattooed on their boobs, and how much longer those stems are getting every year? And it wasn’t just young women. I mean really, if your Depends cover up part of your tramp stamp, you may want to rethink your fashion statement! I’m telling you, it was more than the cold weather that made me shiver!
But we had a good time wandering around looking at all of the goodies. Terry picked up a couple of kitchenware items she was looking for, and some wooden bobbins that looked like they were used in a woolen mill. She wants to use them to wind her yarn on. Speaking of yarn and things like that, do any of you blog readers have a Hansen miniSpinner? Terry has been researching them online, and would love to talk to somebody who has one and get their feedback.
We’ll be on the road this morning, driving up to Ocala for our appointment at Cummins Coach Care to have them look at our heater core. Yesterday afternoon, when we got back from the swap meet we (okay, Terry) bypassed the heater core, and then I ran the engine for ten minutes or so to see if we had any leaks. Not a drop, so we’re good to go.
The Cummins shop has an RV parking area with electric, but I hope they’ll be done early enough that we can drive back to Bushnell before dark. And once we get back and hooked up, I plan to settle in, put on my comfy sweats and my Teepee Creepers, and not poke my nose outside unil the thermometer hits 70 again!
