The last weekend of October already! And Hurricane Sandy is on her way?
What to do!? Stay or go, sandbags or ice bags? Tape the windows, plywood the windows? Head for higher ground?
Flea market or supermarket?
Yesterday the gulls seemed unconcerned...
Just another grey and foggy day.
So? Last week the flea market was GREAT! It had moved again, back to a larger more appealing area. There was parking and grass and shade.
The real antiques dealers were there too.
I got some goodies.
My Staffordshire transferware china I love.
|the pink bowl is tiny, less than 2" across!|
|cups without handles are usually old, pre 1840|
|and geometric shapes are older, c. 1840-50?|
small milk jug, rare.
|Inside decoration: another sign of being older pieces...|
same with cups below
|blue cup plate predates the pink butter pat|
|an Austrian creamer, tiny. |
Less than 1/4 Cup.
I have to say I think the Weather people are too ---excited? Even over-excited. They have no clue how stressful it can be to sit here and wonder what is to come. And the more often the overblown reports precede weather systems that just blow in and out with a few showers---the less likely we are to be willing to leave.
The Weather Channel crying ''wolf''?
Not good. Migraine time! For now we are staying, in spite of the evacuation orders. Wish me luck.
