Well, this was an exceptional show, even for Corning which always has a good show. The weather was perfect, unlike earlier years when recent rains would make the show field soggy. Tractor Dan and I left West Tennessee early and got there just in time to get a good parking place.
Dan came by around 5:30 and we left for Arkansas stopping in Kennett Mo for breakfast, then on to Corning Ark by way of Rector Ark and over the Crawley Ridge. The leaves were just turning and farmers were out in the fields bringing in the cotton, rice and soy beans. I took around 170 images and videos and selected some 140 for here. If you see someone you know, please let them know that their photo is on the internet. The Ahrent family provided a lot of the equipment (in it's working clothes and working)If you see a photo that you are interested in, email me and I will forward the full size image along with any extra images that I did not post here.
There were over 200 antique/classic cars at the car show. I always see sometinig new and different at this car show (like and Auburn Boat tail one year).
The folks there were very friendly and the flea market was no exception. There was live intertainment at the stage all day from a square dancing group early to rock bands and country bands probably up into the night after we left.
When floks find Corning, they come back.

This was what it was all about. A large elevator loading barges with soy beans to go down to the gulf and on to parts of the world. Let me know what you think and let my know that you were here. Pass on information to floks that you know that you saw here.

If I had a tree as big as this, huge cottonwood in my back yard I would have to build a tree house in it. No telling how old this tree is or how many ropes have been thrown around it from barges and steam boats from earlier times.
