K.C. , I can't tell you the exact date yet today, but I'll have business to take care of in Jamesport next week, I'll find out and let everybody know. In any case, it is in the first week of July.
I'll have a few things to sell, so I'll be there both days. Look forward to seeing you there.

We were in Jamesport today. Unfortunately nobody had a flyer yet, but I was told the auction would take place on Wednesday and Thursday of the week of the 4th of July. Since that would be the 4th and the 5th, I'll better wait till they have a flyer so that I can really verify the dates. Anyway, although hardly advertised, the auction is one of the largest in the Midwest when it comes to horse-drawn implements , buggies, carriages etc. Acres and acres of items! Relatively few draft horses are offered, though, in part also because Jamesport itself among the Amish has waning numbers of heavy horses and the few renowned breeders take their horses elsewhere. They sell a lot of riding and buggy horses, though.
The auction certainly would warrant a visit by the esteemed publisher of the RuraL Heritage magazine!!

If it’s July 4-5, I’ll be there. If it’s the week before, I won’t be able to make it but will be heading to Horse Progress Days in Michigan. If it’s the week after I’ll be in Tennessee. Hope it’s July 4-5.

Well, Joe, in this case I'll look forward to seeing you there. It traditionally has been in the week of the 4th of July as long as I have attended it, and that's ever since 1993!
