Fiestaware Tent Sale

Something else we did this past week was travel to Newell, West Virginia to the Homer Laughlin China Co for their Summer Tent Sale.  It was an incredible event and the anticipation while in line was almost too much!  We were 174, 175 + 176 in line, but we were still able to get into the tent before noon!  We got in line around 5 am and they hand the tickets out at 7 am, so that's pretty good.   There were people in front of us (way, way in front of us) that had spent the night!  That's pretty hard core, I'm just sayin'.  We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express and were almost tempted to let the air out of the tires of the cars in the Parking Lot, but then thought better of it!

The picture below is of a riding lawnmower that someone drove to McDonald's on for breakfast . . . another sight was when we drove by this house that was pretty close to the road that had an RV parked in front with no wheels and someone was living in it - - there were lots of weird things like this in the little town of Newell!
