We Got Fleas!

Our Location today is Bushnell, Florida.

I mentioned in our blog post on Saturday that we had gotten up early without the use of an alarm clock. We actually have three in the trailer but we figured if we woke up early the way we wanted great but if not Oh Well. So we repeated the performance today with a special destination in mind.
After a light breakfast we were out the door by 8:00 headed for the Webster Flea Market. Since we had forgotten about it last Monday and arrived later in the afternoon today we wanted an earlier start. The temperature was supposed to reach the mid to upper 80’s today so this gave us a chance to beat the heat.
Another thing we did today was to go in through an entrance at the opposite end of the fairgrounds. There were many more vendors set up for business at this time of day then we had seen last week. We actually had very certain items that we were looking for so we weren’t just shopping on a whim. If it wasn’t on our list we weren’t buying it.
 Having been to many of these flea markets in the past most things seen here were not that surprising to us but then there were a few that were pleasant and not so pleasant surprises. We ended up grabbing a hot dog around 11:00 just to tide us over until we went for lunch somewhere at an outside restaurant. By 12:30 we had gotten our fair share of walking and people watching for the day and did manage to make a half dozen purchases without breaking the bank.
Wanting something other than Carnival type foods that was being served at the fair grounds so we headed to Bushnell. First thing before eating we stopped to top off the fuel tanks on the truck. With fuel at the Hess station going for $3.889 a gallon we saved over $20.00 from our last couple of fill up’s.
After a quick drive through Bushnell we settle on Wendy’s for lunch where Kathy had a chance to settle her salad craving before we headed back to the trailer after 2:00. All the way back the sky was so cloudy that I didn’t dare start anything outside. Instead I was helping Kathy with her research for our stay in Florida next year. We stopped the research after 5:00 for a simple egg on toast breakfast for supper.
Tomorrow the weather is promising more cloudy skies so we’ll just have to find something to keep us busy. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy!

It’s about time.


Office Jokes, Quotes, and Anecdotes

In 1997 an e-mail message spread world-wide announcing that the Internet would be shut down for cleaning March 31- April 2 to clear out the "electronic flotsam and jetsam" that had accumulated in the network. This was an updated version of an old joke about phones. For many years, gullible folks had been warned that the phone systems would be cleaned on April Fool's Day. They were cautioned to place plastic bags over the ends of the phone to catch the dust that might be blown out of the phone lines during this period.


  1. Oh my there was everything to pick from at that flea market. You title was cute. I couldn't figure out how you had fleas though. :)

  2. Love the flea market in Ft. Myers, FL. When my Mom and Dad lived there and we would visit we would always have to make a trip to the flea market. Never came home empty handed. Next time you go to Wendy's Kathy might want to try the Baja Salad. My wife loves it. The chili on the salad is great. Curt

  3. Shopping the flea market is a nice way to spend the day. Glad you had a good one

  4. That is definitely the kind of fleas to have:)

  5. You had me worried for a moment there about the fleas!
