Default Laborday Show, at Mt Pleasant

I got here last eve., got in line at the swap tent, it started at 6:00 am. By the time the gate opened, the line was 60' long. About 200 people in here Luling around. It's as full as ever, even with the $20 seller fee.I think they are trying to keep the junk men out.
Grounds are fairly wet in places,with one guy buried to his bumper. Like all shows, there are wet spots. One needs to watch where he goes.I found out years past, if no one is set up in an area, and no one is driving there, do not drive through there, you could get a little stuck.
Engine area has a lot of open area today, but several loads are along the drive waiting on sunny to shine. It should dry out enough by start time, Thurs..
The 6 hp Galloway is 2,400, the one with the add on mag is 1,250 and the Hero grinder is $950.
The train has steam up , so better get going.

Kind of slim pickns for me. I did not get to preview, so missed the Johnny boy. It was sold in 30 seconds.
Bought this cast seat, Morrison Bros. Fort Madison Iowa
