Went to the show today

 Iowa Power Farming Show, 

 

Hope it gets better for the exhibitors the next two days.

 

Seed guys were set in their ways, a couple of booths had basically belligerent staff.

 

Way too many let us help you farm for a fee outfits.

 

Many booths the people looked like the Maytag repairman in the old ads of yesteryear.

 

Many folks doing a good job of staying in the center of the walkway.

 

That being said there were things being sold, I helped one out fit rearrange things so they could get part of their display on a cart and rolled out to a loading area.

 

I bought a new tarp for my trailer and an opener with a button, had to wait my turn. I was # 2 at least that did that right after a good pulled pork sandwich, chips, coleslaw, & coke for $15. 

 

Quite a few tarp outfits up there, seemed to be three basic styles, I bought the one with a five year warranty on the motor.  Bet I'll not miss the pilgrimage to the back of the trailer at the scales.

I'm planning to visit Thursday.  Strictly social, as I'm cutting back and not in the buying  mood.
