Oh boy, folks, I am writing this on the first day of spring and pretty soon all will be bloomed and full of leaves where the trees will have to fight each other to see the light! I know, everyone's allergies are acting up right along with all of this....Oh, those Bloomin' Allergies!
As you know, warmer weather brings so many exciting events for all of us to attend. The Relay for Life organization is sponsoring a fantastic fund-raiser on Thursday May 1st from 6 to 9 at the Moonlite Drive-In in Woodbury. Lots of fun for everyone! We at the Short Mountain trading Post are contributing the country games corner, so make sure you come see us and try your luck! All proceeds go to the campaign against cancer. We are thrilled to be part of this!
The Trading Post is also continuing the Flea Market Day every other month, the first Saturday of that month from 10 to 5. Our next one coming up is on June 7th, Our June Bug Blast. Please call now to reserve a spot to sell your goods. No cost to you and all your monies earned are yours! Last month's was a hit, along with our lunch on the grill and soft drink for only $1.00. Call me, Savannah, at 615-464-7824 to reserve your table space.
Another event to sign up for is the summer farmer's market every Thursday. We are interested in those who have fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, canned goods, jams and jellies, baked goods, plants, flowers and herbs. Free set-up and once again all your monies are yours. You can't beat that!! Also, you will be under cover inside barn.
Guess what!!! Yep, folks, we are having a Christmas in July celebration. Lots of exciting items to buy, baked goods, cold drinks, mule wagon rides and live music. Stay tuned for the date of that event. We have to get the Fourth of July celebrated first, and then on to the next extravaganza. Keep in mind that Savannah and JD buy, sell or trade at The Post, so if you have some interesting items that you think they might like, please stop by or call the number above and set up an appointment.
Uncle Fester is always trying to come up with an item that he just knows we don't have at the Trading Post. He says that his parents were hoarders before hoarding was cool. That's why Uncle Fester believes that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If it is broke, blow it up. Thus, he obviously did not inherit the hoarding gene whatsoever! He also says that 95% of his stories are truthful. As far as I am concerned, I'd rather think it's the other way around. There IS a fine line between a matador and a rodeo clown.
Going to sign off for now and save some chat for next week. If you have any chat to add to mine, please call me and have at it. Just remember: work without fun is like peanut butter without jelly.
Love your family and help your neighbors. Be proud of what you have and who you are. I have always believed that hard work and family go hand in hand. Life isn't easy, but together we can get through all that it hands us.
Have a good week and Hugs, Savannah.
