On Saturday myself, my sister Terry Dixon, and our parents P-nut and Jean Blair had plans to go to Virginia to some flea markets but were rained out, so we went to the new vendors mall at Fleming-Neon. It is a nice big place. Not all the booths are taken but there were a few with things in them. It’s worth going and checking out. Afterward we went out to eat and had a really nice day, even with the rain.
We have been trying to find somewhere to buy peanut beans or some people call them pink beans and can’t find any. If anyone knows where I could get, some please call me at 606- 633-0008.
