I've got another farmers' market story, and it doesn't include a sunburn. Hooray!
Last Sunday I was back at the farmers' market. It had rained on Saturday. (Hooray! We can really use the rain.) It rained Sunday evening. (Hooray! After the market was over.)
Sunday was nice and sunny. And warm. And humid.
After I unpacked my car, I discovered what I had forgotten. My chair. Yep, I packed everything (even remembering my forgotten bags) except for the thing to sit on all day. (They were kind enough to lend me a chair for the day.)
About the time I discovered this, I realized the other thing I had forgotten. A towel. (Ford Prefect would be so disappointed.) Because it didn't take long before I was drenched in sweat.
But I got set up, and everything went fine. Until the wind started blowing.
The last time I had done the market, I didn't have that much trouble with the blowing wind. But this time my display started inching forward.
I'd get up and move it back. Then it would inch forward again. I fought with this all day (well, half the day as the wind didn't pick up until later).
Then, about the last half hour of the market, I realized something. I had bungee cords...
That held the display perfectly. *smacks head*
