What A Waste of Time & Energy

Well, we got over to the Swap Meet about 9:30am...the place was packed !  It was hot, noisy (the booths selling CD's had their music blaring all day & we were right next to one) and very unprofitable!!!      The space cost us $17.00...we sold $13.00 worth of stuff.    And I couldn't even get my camera to work, I don't know what's wrong with it.  It shows the batteries are ok, so I'll have to check it out.  So no pictures.    :(

Oh well, now we know...  It seems to be a place where people come, all dressed up, to visit with their friends, eat and not buy anything.  And I've twisted my knee again today, so poor Bob has had all the loading and unloading of the two vehicles.  I'm barely able to walk, even with the brace on it. 

I am going to the doctor in the morning and other than an insurance meeting on Tuesday, I really have no commitments for the next two weeks.  So hopefully I can get some hints from the doctor to make it feel better.

Ok...that's it !  Our big profitable weekend.....or not.       Linda

Linda, we call them garage sales here in PA. Lots of work and no sales or profit. Left the stuff we had on the curb for the trash on Monday. Never again.
Take care of that leg. They do have ice on the ships.  Bill

So sorry it didn't turn out as well as you had hoped, and that your knee is acting up again!  I hope you are able to sort it before your holiday!

Sorry to hear the swap meet was so lousy...what a shame!  I hope you get your knee feeling better soon.  Take it easy until your cruise, you need to be in good condition!

Sorry the yardsale was a loss, Linda. Hope the doc can do something about your knee, to the extent you will be able to go on your cruise!
