Auction & Bazaar

Underwoods have an auction in Seward Saturday in direct competition with the United Methodist Church Women's  4-Seasons Bazaar. The auction will feature a large collection of vases, figurines, and items similar to this Flamingo. The UMC Bazaar has new leadership this year and will have many hand-crafted items that have been made by members over the past several months. One of the "featured items" is a hand crafted Ukulele made by the husband of one of the ladies. It will be offered along with a few other special items, in a silent auction that will be open during the day. I will try to get to both events along with playing golf, watching Nebraska football, and the post season baseball games. It's not that I expect to buy anything but for some of us who don't travel very far from home, it's great entertainment. Not only to see other peoples "collectibles" but also to visit with our auction friends. In the past, the Bazaar has included homemade apple butter which was a best seller. I don't expect there will be any of that available this year. When you get to be my age, buying more stuff doesn't have much appeal unless you can eat it, drink it, or really need it.
