Whew!!! BIG AUCTION!!! BIG...BIG...AUCTION!!!


Holy Smokes!!!
I was on the road...before Sun Up!!!
Called Dwight Duwa...{the Auctioneer} en route!...got him out of bed!!!
{He said I didn't... but I bet...he wasn't movin' too fast!}
: )
Dwight and Junell...had called to tell me about this Auction...they were having...
several days ago....
Said...there were some things on it... they were sure...I'd Like...: )
I had never been to their Machinery Auction...
My Southern Iowa...Pal...Lynn...always goes...and warned me it was a ZOO!!!
and Parking...could be...'Difficult'...: )
I don't...like...'Difficult'...parking...
so...knew...I had to be there...
EARLY!!!
{and...had No Idea...Where...would be...the best Place...to Park the Ford...to be able to carry...
The Loads...I Knew...I was going to Harvest!!!: ) }
Dwight...helped...me find a Great...Spot!
{There were people...parked in Corn and Bean Fields...when those filled... they parked for miles...in Every Direction...}
This...was Bar None...The Biggest Farm Machinery Auction...I have ever...attended... There was everything from...Industrial...to Semi's...and Dump Trucks...
Every Sort...of Massive Harvesting Equipment....to...a Sea... of Riding Lawn Mowers!
Hog Buildings...Old...Sheds...and...new ones!
It  covered...ACRES!!!!
I don't know...how many Auctioneers...they had going...but...I would say...around... 7...
{think...about this Song... playing...7 times..over... Spinning..around your Head all in unison...!!! oh my...Lord! CRAZY!!!}
I was running....{literally...}... from one end...of the Massive....Event...to the Other!!!!
So many of the things...I was interested in.... were...selling...at the same time!!!
Thanks...to Lynn...he watched for me...and I watched for him...on separate piles....
Like he said....we really needed a person...for each Auctioneer...
oh...but that...would be...too...easy...
oh...my...
I missed one group...of things...I had wanted... by...about...one...minute...
I was...SICK!!!
Dang!
I just couldn't run...any faster...!!!!
oh well...
That's the way it goes...
as it was...I bought some...GREAT...Stuff!!!
Got a Nice Load!!!
Everyone...was having such a good time...
LOVE...AUCTIONS!!!!
Love to Ya...
Barb C.
{I thought of Dad....so many times...throughout the Day....
He would have been in Hog Heaven!!!!}
 
 
 
 
oh.. my... there was Everything....from Horse Drawn... to...Hundreds.. of Horse Powered...
Monsters!!!.
 
This...was a Crazy.....Day!

It was Dark....when I arrived...but...saw this...Darling...
I thought...Long...and Hard...about buying the Darling Shed...{The one...that has...Keota Iowa painted...on it!!} Lynn and I both... looked it over....
He thought...it would be...cool...for The Rabbit Hole...too...
I just knew...it would be...a headache...getting it home....
I have too many headaches... now
Got a Lovely...Load....
Full of Surprises!!!!
for...
The Garden Party!!!
: )
{I want to Thank...Dwight...and Junell Duwa... {Duwa's Auctions Wellman, Iowa....} for the Invite... They...are Priceless...
It was Great...seeing...the other...Auctioneers...
Willy...Harold...Andy...{had no Idea...he'd be there....{Hoge's Auctions... Coggon, Iowa... Andy...has a Great...Auction House... {I have known his...Dad...Kenny....{another...Great...Auctioneer....for Years! Since...he was selling...Livestock...oh my....Waaaaay...Back! }
 and has an...Impressive...Machinery Auction... but...even...Andy...was a...Bit...{a...lot...}Taken...Back... by this....Big...Big....Auction, Dwight...and Junell...Put Together!!!! {Holy...Smokes!!! }
We were...Impressed....
Beyond....Impressed...
{Holy....Smokes!!!}
It was Great...meeting New...Auctioneers... from other areas....who invited me...to their...Auctions...as well...
{unless...they call me...
 like...Dwight... I won't...know...: ) and...they probably...won't...
but...It was Great Fun...Meeting Them!
{Auctioneers...as I have known....since I was...a little girl...
doing...my Dad's...bidding...for him...
 are...'Characters'...
Hard...Working...
Fun...Loving...
Characters...: )
yes...
Wonderful...Characters...
Love 'em!
They...are... 'Priceless'...: ) }
  Thanks So...Much....to Lynn...for Helping...Load...
{and...the Folks...I didn't know... for lending a hand...
{God...I Love...Iowa...: ) }
