I spent my 61st birthday (August 13th) traveling to Maggie Valley, NC for vendor set up day. Once there I had the pleasure of setting up a 20x20 tent by myself in the hot sun. Once that was done I had the pleasure of stocking the tent and making sure I was ready to open up at 10 AM Friday morning. May not sound like much of a birthday to some but I really enjoyed it. I have worked for myself for 26 years and I enjoy being my own boss. I don't work that weekly 9 to 5 and I get to travel. Plus I get to be around my own kind. What a blessing.
