My kidney went south on me, so I have to go to dialysis 3 times a week for 3 1/2 hours. Being my kidney still work some what I can skip some days once in awhile as long as I take it easy on the fluid intake.
If I have to I can go down in the T.C. if I let them know ahead of time.
I know what old age does to you for sure.LOL The last year has been pretty good, but for 2 years before that I was in and out of the hospital or care center. I can't walk very good so I use a cart to get around.
I just got a new camera so I can carry all my stuff in the cart, now I have to learn how to run the camera. The book for the flash unit is as big as the one for the camera. I think I might be in deep doo doo. LMAO.

By the way Jester, nice pictures.

Jester I'm up north of the T.C. The show is in St. Paul at the state fair grounds. I go down on Thursday to get checked in before the rush.
If you go on line and GO to the M.R.S.A. web site. you can Reg. If you do it early you will save yourself some bucks. If your son lives in the T.C. you will have a place to stay.
The place is crazy people spend all night in there cars to get in Friday and Sat. morning, Sunday morning there is a big swap meet, the show has over 300 vendors, a ladies showcase for the ladies. They show them everything from how do do their hair to how to cut their toe nails. LOL No they have a fashion show to what ever.
There is a raising of the flag on Sat. morning by Vets. Then a flyover by world war two planes, which are low, and they pass over 3-4 times, I think it is pretty neat myself and I think many others do to.
They also have a big craft fair, and food stands all over both walk up or sit down. It is more than a show it is a happening.
Many people come year after year, from many states and our friends in Canada. And I know we have a couple coming from N.Z. this year.
If your son doesn't live in the T.C. you will have to hurry to get signed up for a camping space on grounds. There are two camp grounds on site, North and South and I know the North is full.
If it sounds like I'm pushing the show I am. I was head guy for 4 years and help run it for a total of 11 years. I started getting the vendors there when we opened the show up to everyone. But I think most members of M.R.S.A. are just like me when it comes to the 50's, they can't wait for the show to start.
Think about it, if you come I don't think you will be sorry, and I'm pretty sure you will tell others about it.
I did say we give prizes on Sunday, about $30,000 worth or more not sure.
I would like to get a bunch off here to come and we could have a get together on the grounds Sat. afternoon.
