Saturday, March 15
It was a cool ~ sometimes sunny, sometimes cloudy day ~ a wonderful Saturday morning to walk around our local mud sale.
Mud sale you ask?
What is that?
They are an area phenomenon ~ benefit auctions for fire companies and Amish schools.
If you really like them you can find one almost every Saturday from the last Saturday in February through the last Saturday in June ~ and several more during the summer and fall months.
They are called mud sales, because most are held in spring when there is lots of mud.
This one, which is located in our neighborhood, attracts hundreds of people ~ and there are auctioneers in tents and on wagons across the entire fire company property.
There are all kinds of items for auction.
Carriages for horses to pull.
Even an artificial cow.
We thought Jere should buy it for his milk-testing office, but we couldn’t reach him.
Or ~ Cerwin suggested that I could buy it to put in our family’s yards for birthdays.
Our children and grandchildren are lucky that I didn’t stay to buy it. 🙂
The furniture tent
And yes, there was mud.
Verification of the name ~ Mud Sale.
More pictures tomorrow night.
