Hey now, it's just like a mini-mall.

The weekend Flea Market in Albuquerque is awesome. Great mix of old and new stuff, smell of roasting chiles in the air, and freaks for weeks to watch while walking through it. My buddy and I have a running bet regarding who first sees a regular that is always there. He's a black guy who walks, actually kind of stalks, through the place. He looks at nothing except straight ahead. He usually has some kind of stick/club with him. He has an old cassette walkman and old 80s headphones through which he blasts music that obviously pumps him up. He's covered in satanic tattoos, some quite scary on the face. He has an intense look and he breaths deeply and sounds like some kind of demon on the exhale. We've laughed wondering what exactly is in his headphones because it's probably something dark and scary, but the thought of it being Ace of Base is hilarious. The first person to spot Satan Jr. as we've come to call him gets their breakfast bought by the other. I've considered taking a picture of this cat but fear of being caught by him keeps me from doing it.

I love flea markets. This headline is truth and made me LOL.

So, the boiled peanuts are now also roasted?

Blame it on the space heater being too close to some records, paper, etc..... I was wondering when the first of the season - Fire caused by space heater© story would be. I guess last night is the winner. 

/// Next week is the - Entire family killed by CO2 from generator or space heater© winner 
/// Followed by the - Razor blade found in apple (we think) week©

That's exactly what he wants you to do. Steal his soul. You take his picture, his evil soul enters you and next thing you know, you're walking around town with tattoos and a cassette player.

Hang on. I've got to get this idea off to Steven King. He pays $25 for each one that he uses. This one is going to be better than when I saw a clown car accident and there was this clown stuck in the sewer. I'm just glad he changed to to a clown's face instead of a clown's scary, scary ass.

Better cue up next month's fire caused by frying whole turkey, then December's bad wiring burns up christmas tree and all gifts followed by January's man burns down house trying to thaw pipes with blowtorch.

Some one should write a book about this.

A grandfather, father, son and brother were killed; the death toll stands at one.

The value of the burnt goods is both zero and infinite at the same time in a state of quantum flea market uncertainty.

local insurance co. sales reps breath mighty sigh of relief knowing their phones won't be ringing.

The no brand tube sock market will never recover.

windowseat: The no brand tube sock market will never recover.


Neither will the shoplifted Tide market.

Oriental Trading Company merch lost in fire... decorative Pakistani lock-blade knives, dead electric/ electronic gear, stolen crap jewelry, chipped glass & pottery, Taiwanese (Buffalo brand!) socket wrenches, thin fabric UberPatriot t-shirts, boxes of VHS tapes, just the usual stuff.

Where will I get my Confederate flag memorabilia now? Oh, whew--at all the other Georgia flea markets.

I'm not sure which was better--the flea markets in Georgia, or the ones in southern New Mexico. I never bought anything at either one of them. You went just for the experience.

Just think of all the lost royalty payments that copyright holders will miss from all the second hand books, CDs, DVDs ect.

Nothing funny about a fire, and a flea market can be a nightmare for firefighters.
