with regrets, we are not coming. just too many obstacles to deal with.

on the good news (for someone else) side, we just cancelled a room at the Huron Crossroads Hotel for Aug 8, 9, and 10, if anyone needs a room close by.

I would still really like to participate, cause I found some more goodies for the 1456 yesterday!!! But being grain prices were so bad this spring, and we had no hauling, I knew we were going to get backed up by July! Well a little price increase a week ago, and the phone was on fire!! My best guess is around 100, maybe more loads of grain to move for our customers, plus some more of mine, and fertilizer to haul back to the local coop until August, September depending on how much they keep getting!! So I’m not sure just yet what is in store for me?

Antifa trying to disrupt the He!!'s Angels?

They may get to see where Jimmy Hoffa's buried?

 

PS: The Lions Pancake House will be open early in the AM starting Friday.

If you get up early, want coffee, breakfast and B.S., stop by and set down in an open chair. 

The food is great.

In 2014, the day started here and it will do so again in 2020.

There is no more fun than people?

I was hoping to go, but just this morning they announced that the Canada/US border will be closed until August 21! ?

 So I guess there won’t be any Canadians attending this year!

 

that really sucks, with RPRU being as close to the border as it ever will get.

I sent my vendor package in the other day, staying at the super 8, now all I have to do is finish getting my stuff ready.  I'm still looking for someone to guarantee nice weather!  I'm going to bring my pellet grill along so people will smell food cooking and stop in to visit,. I couldn't get a swimsuit model to come along so grilling food will have to work!
