First Market Day

I certainly appreciate everyone's comments and support.

I'm feeling a little better about everything tonight.  I was trying to
remember some positive things about the market and there were a few
positive moments that I can remember now.  There was a young man (looked
like a teenager) there with 8 puppies, trying to find them homes while
selling his vegetables.  He was so gentle with the pups and a credit to his
age group.  

A couple of ladies visiting from Iowa seemed genuinely pleased to receive
my recipe for zucchini muffins when they each bought a bag of zucchini.
One lady bought lots of the zucchini muffins to take back to the campground
where she is spending part of her vacation.  She had bought two, eaten
them, and came back for more.

I guess I got the out-of-towners.  :-)

I don't know if I'll go back or not.  It was awfully hot.  But, we're
trying to help two kids through college and we certainly could use the
money.  If the market master had been there, it might have been more
pleasant.  I will certainly talk to him and let him know what happened.
Perhaps the universe is trying to tell me something and I just don't have
my "hearing aid" turned up far enough.

Again, I really appreciate the advice and support from all of you.
