So about the time I gave up on parking cars yesterday, I loafed around on the couch and went to bed early (I even missed - though recorded - Breaking Bad!). I am trying to make this post from work and I've had a non-stop parade of folks in my office this morning, so this will be shorter than my standard (which, in the case of My-Sugar-Na, will be a relief).
'Twas an odd day in the car park industry. Had no real problems filling all 13 spots by about 3:00 PM. I went inside, watched the end of the Brewers game, and fell asleep on the couch as it started to rain about 4:00 PM. Woke up around 5:00 PM to see my wife trying to fill spots on our yard.
I went out and took inventory, and we had four cars gone. But I had noticed it much cooler, and less humid. I figure there would be no problem filling those spaces. Proves what I know. The only neighborhood traffic was everybody leaving.
I figure that those at the Fair on Sunday evening had the place to themselves, because by the time I gave up last night, I only had four cars still in my yard, and nobody looking for a place to park.
The James Family total for cars parked in 2011 is at 60 (which is three above last year), but revenue is down a touch. The Monday of the Fair is usually very sparse as far as people looking to park on yards, but we'll see.
