I certainly hope to see all of you on Saturday, April 5th at our Spring Fling Flea Market Day!! Soooo many folks have called and reserved their FREE vendor spot to set up their tables and sell their treasures to all those who are searching for those extra special items with the flavor of flea market all over them!! FREE spots still available, so don't hesitate to call me at: 615-464-7824.
Also, keep in mind that we are searching for more craftspeople to permanently set up inside the barn. The farmer's market starts in late May, and you are invited to bring your veggies, fruits, eggs and canned goods to sell every Thursday. No charge for the produce spot. Please contact me at the number above if interested in participating.
A serious problem is going on in our county and surrounding towns. A customer of mine mentioned that her german shepherd named "Shea" has gone missing from her home in the Short Mountain area. Shea is a neutered female and a very important family member. The family is very unhappy and distressed that their wonderful pet has been taken. A few weeks ago, their other german shepherd went missing and before that, their lawn tractor was taken. Friends, please watch out for your neighbors. Get to know them and they will also watch out for you. The outrageous feeling of loss and violation is unforgivable. The heartbreak of losing a precious pet is unbearable.
I have been given three numbers to call if you happen to see this missing dog or has information leading to the recovery of Shea. They are: 615-796-0362, 615-631-6919 or 615-563-9626. Any help to this family would be greatly appreciated.
Also, for those who decide to do just the opposite and drop off their unwanted animals on the highway, at doorsteps or in any neighborhood they wish to do so, shame on you!! It breaks my heart to see all this cruelty. I love animals, but golly, there are just so many within reason that I or anyone else can rescue, shelter and feed. All my family's pets are rescue animals and I wouldn't trade them for the world.
Well, let's just hope, folks, that life can start handing us a bowl full of cherries, instead of a basket of rotten apples. Take care of yourself and each other, be safe, be happy and band together for a better world.
See you at the Short Mountain Trading Post soon and chat with you next week.
