Looking up at pine cones in my back yard
❤ ❤ ❤ ❤
Walked around the farm loop. Two deer came running out from the corn stalks, saw me, turned around and ran right back in. Saw a couple more farther down the road in another field. They are in the picture on the left but hard to see.
Heard the rooster waking everyone up at a farm and the cows were out in the field again at the dairy farm. No people about.
Walked past my house and around town. It was cloudy once the sun rose but about 10 minutes before I got home the sun was shinning.
Didn't find any coins today but I did find a large hook that came off a tie down strap. I brought it home for Ken.

We left this morning to go to an auction a little ways down past Cumberland and spent the whole day there. We left from home at 4:00 and it was still going strong with lots more stuff to auction off.
Ken had found a few things he wanted to bid on but I didn't really see anything I wanted. I stayed by Ken for a while and then just walked around. Standing off in the shade a lady came over by me and ended up telling me about some things that are going on her life. Things I'd never tell a complete stranger. But people tell me things like that quite often. I must look like a good listener.
Ken and I had hot dogs and chips for lunch which they were selling inside.
When Ken got something, I'd bring it back to the truck, until he got something that I couldn't carry. I'll tell you about that in just a bit. : )
I went for a little walk up the street from the auction.
This house is for sale. I love the brook that runs right through the back yard. The house sits on 33 acres and cost $209.000. Sounds like a good price to me but maybe not considering it is in the flood plain.
Anyway back to the auction. There was a very tall radio tower in two pieces on the ground that Ken seemed interested in. I said to him, "Please, do not bid on that." I walked away and when I came back guess what? Yup, he bought it. You will never guess what he paid for it. $2.
Here he is getting it in the truck. You can see why I couldn't carry that back to the truck.
Here is the rest of the goodies that we came home with.
- Coal bucket and planter was one lot
- Shoe shine box and tool box was one lot
- 6 foot pry bar - which is very heavy
- Dutch Oven - that one is mine
So that was our day at the auction. I never know what we will come home with. : )
We took the radio tower right up to Happy Trails before coming home.
Hope your Friday has been a good.
A happy day to you.

Three Thankful Things Today
- A great weather auction day
- Ken didn't bid on a huge round submarine buoy. Here's a picture of the thing. It weighed about 300 pounds and was about 4 feet in diameter.
- We got that radio tower home safely
