Except for cooking and a few trips to the market, I have slept or rested for most of the last two days. That long drive really takes it out of me!
Walking through the flea market right before leaving, I passed by a young couple who had just packed up their space. The man got behind the wheel of his big pickup truck, laughing and joking, started it up -- and hit the air horns as several of us walked past. Loudest thing I have heard in years! I covered my ears but it was on my right side and the hearing in my right ear has been wonky ever since. Thanks, idiot. Hoping it will wear off.
Still not sorry I went. Maybe next year I'll be able to leave earlier.
