Are any of you KY folks going to Court Days in Mt Sterling, KY this weekend. I'm headed there tomorrow. If anyone is not familiar with it they close the streets and trade anything and everything except animals.

I'm less than 20 miles from it and have never been there for that. I have been to a version of it in Preston, KY just up the road in Bath County. They have animals there of all kinds, horses, goats, dogs, chickens, even seen people carrying pigs.

It starts the 16th. With the prices they charge for the small space are there any deals, dang? (Pricing for a 10’ x 18’ spot is $150! For a 10’ x 20’ space-- $250. That is $1250 for a 1000 feet) Sounds like somebody is doing well and it is not the venders. Hope you find some good deals.

It's kind of funny for me, I go to Mt. Sterling fairly often, but I have always stayed away from there during Court Days. I have been on I-64 and seen traffic backed up on the exit ramp plum out on the interstate. The times that I have been to Preston, it seems like that one is growing every year. I hope that the weather stays good for your trip.

Is one of those "Bring the women" type of deals? Where you try to marry them off to guys from out of town? You know, to get new blood into the village?
