The Adrian swap meet
Yesterday was another nice day; normally we would have gone to Adrian on the motorcycle, but the weatherman was sure a change in the weather was on its way. We did not want to be out on the Gold Wing when the temperatures took a plunge.
The slide show pictures various items for sale at the swap meet. Cliff only bought a couple of tools.
We ended up making it a full day of country-style shopping: We drove through every tractor sales place we passed, starting with Cook Tractor in Clinton. We stopped at a little store south of Warrensburg that specializes in Carhartt clothing, because Cliff could use a new coat. Unfortunately, this place had higher prices than the local farm stores. We stopped at Kleinschmidts near Higginsville, where I got myself another pair of Muck Boots... short ones for walking in the dew this year. They were $50, as opposed to the almost $100 I spent for my winter boots. Obviously, I am a Muck Boot convert. I think Cliff is too.
Oh, and today, the first day of spring?
