What really cold exhibitors do


I think this was Sunday.
No rain, sixty high.
A fellow exhibitor offered to take our picture.
My hands are clutched around handwarmers in my pocket.
I believe we had gone through all the handwarmers by Sunday;
I probably had toewarmers in my fists.


"No, no. Give us a gangster sign."
Whatever. Let me put my hands back in my pockets.


See the blue and white rug at the top left.
That is the one the chatty lady wanted in the quiet man's bathroom with all the boats.

  2. Those hand warmers and foot warmers are so handy when you are out and not moving around too much. You were wise to have them.

  4. Did he get that rug? I can't remember. Next time I will have non-expired hand/foot warmers. They work much better.

  8. I'm often disappointed myself when what looks to be a sunny warm day turns out to be sunny and freezing.
    I hope you did well, lots of sales. The only hand warmers I know about are called gloves.

  12. She chose well, the chatty lady.

    Mind you, you look cosy - is there any chance the handwarmers were baked potatoes like in dear old stories of pioneer America?

  17. The best thing about being out in temperatures like that all day is the relief of the warmth when you finally get into a heated room again ... The gangster sign photo is awesome :)

  18. When you are just standing around, hand warmers are a must 8 months a year in the north.
