Whew...A Day At Duwa's Auction... the Fun Never Ends!!!!

Can you see Aletha, clear on top of the load? Oh my...We were all pushing and shoving...determined to get it all loaded... to the point we were pushing each other... oh my.... it was like seeing how many people you can fit into a V.W....
We had a convoy, to Augusta's, in Oxford, for supper... taking back roads...in the dark... oh dear....We all had a great time...
Renate was watching us rack and stack... and wondered if I was going to clear the underpasses... oh dear....We had to keep pulling the Little Ford, out, to make sure, it was going to clear the Garage door opening...oh dear...{Don said we could always let the air out of the tires...oh dear....Thankfully...it didn't come to that...}
The Gang...{from left to right} Harold, the awesome clerk...Don. J., 'Amana Colonies Antiques'...Junelle and Dwight Duwa...Aletha, up front, and Renate...{Bud was hiding...}'Renate's' 
Oh my...A Day at the Auction....
Duwa's Auction Services, had their annual "Amana" auction... I Have Never seen such a crowd.... this is a small portion of the audience.... it was standing room only...I was standing behind Dwight Duwa, the auctioneer... most of the day...
Everyone in the Antique Community was there, or represented.... It was quite the Auction.... I wound up with a pretty good load... and thankfully, could pull inside the building, to load... It was frigid, outside... and I bought some pretty substantial pieces....
There was some amazing stuff there... oh man... If I would have had a huge bank roll...I would have done some serious damage.... as it is, I spent lots...yikes..
I was ever so thankful, to Dwight, Junelle, Bud, Renate, Don and Aletha...Oh my...They helped rack, and stack...we nearly got everything on the Ford, 'til the tires were almost rubbing.... It was a late night... and a long day...I'm going to get the rest, Monday...
I have to unload...and figure out where I'm going to stash everything...then deliver the massive kitchen cupboard, to sweet Audrey...{Sweet Cheeks Tasty Treats}This afternoon.... It's going to be an amazing work horse for her!
Then...I'm taring into the Shop...Oh dear...just a week 'til the Anamosa Show...a Cold...Cold week...a fun time to be loading...
{it was great seeing everyone... Jerry...Carole... Tom...Steve... Ken...Louie...Kevin...Vivian...all the 'Amana Gals'... Julie S.... Just everyone....}
