We had a fundraising market yesterday so it was another long day for us that began with an early rise shortly after 0500. I had a few things to finish off for the bake table our group Animal Advocates of Pedasi/Defensores de los Animales de Pedasi; otherwise I might have tried to get away with an extra hour of snoozing before the 0630 meet time.
Near the end of a busy day, when the market was winding down, two young fellows cruised by the town basketball court/community center/everything meeting center to one and all to take a look at the few items remaining. This young guy immediately zeroed in on this leather jacket and we were happy to sell it to him for $2.00. I have a feeling that he had scoped out the jacket earlier in the day and returned with his bus driver father hoping that it was still there. It was, and the price must have been right for papa. Although the sleeves are a little short on him the now proud owner was thrilled with his purchase and posed for a photo for me, even though his buddy thought it was quite amusing.
Our little “Michael Jackson/Elvis Presley” left the building, hopped on his bicycle and tore up the streets of Pedasi with his amigo in the bright afternoon sunshine as his dad drove off in his bus. ¡Qué guapo! What a handsome man…in the campo!
