Auction Day


CAROLYN’S DAILY POSTS: 2011

AUCTION DAY

     I woke up at 8:00 a. m., almost bright and bushy-tailed, yesterday morning. It was the day of an EVENT in our small community of one hundred eighty nine census report residents. It was AUCTION time. In half an hour I would leave our home to walk a couple of blocks on the community’s one-lane gravel roads to where the event was scheduled for 9:00. My husband Monte carried two of our lawn chairs, and I was armed with a notebook, pen, and camera. Bidding on anything wasn’t in our plans—we are trying to downsize. I was going to enjoy the action, observe prices, and to learn if the real estate and van would sell—and at what price.

     The day dawned with beautiful weather, and it was pleasurable sitting on the backyard lawn watching the bidding and action. The crowd wasn’t what I expected, and parking wasn’t the problem it could have been. Prices were infamously low. We actually did bid on several items and were outbid, but successfully bid on an electric lawn mower, electric cords, picture frames, and a wonderful blanket—all for less than forty dollars. Since Monte was considering purchasing an electric lawn mower, this was a good opportunity.

     Later, I will have time to write a regular post on the auction. For now, this introduction will have to suffice.
