I checked with 1sarge last night to see if the Fall show was a go and he was kind enough to call me and say that there were some tractors there. Not many but, a few, so I decided to get up this morning and head out to Houston Miss. 140 miles south and 3 1/2 hours drive. I left home about 5:45 and headed south through Jackson Tn. and south to Bolivar Tn. then south through Middleton Tn. and into Mississippi through Walnut, Ripley, Blue Mountain, New Albany, Pontotoc, and then Houston Miss. As it got light, I noticed more and more yard sales along the road and floks waking up to move stuff out to the yard or scattered parking lots in towns that I passed through. The dawn light was slow comming up as it was overcast but, didn't really look like rain, and mabey those folks that were preparing for yard sales knew for sure that it wasn't going to rain. This is considered "first Monday week end" and those are key words for the big flea markets here in the south. There's a big flea market on the south edge of Ripley Miss. that looks like a large refuge camp from a distance. If you go there, you will not see it all in a day. I made a mental note to stop at the Wal-Mart on the north side of Pontotoc to fill up on the way back. Gas was $3.38.9/10 a gallon for regular (10% ethanol). I also stopped at Auto Zone to get a couple of quarts of engine oil for spares (the old gray car is a couple thousand miles from a quarter million). Anyway, on to Houston. I got there and it was warm and muggy (humid). The light from the sun was hazy but bright, good light for photography

Video is of a local chior singing the national anthem, "Good morning world, from Houston Miss." The thumping noise in the back ground is the big Fairbanks Morse engine running.
