–If I were the betting kind, and someone asked what one word described July Brimfield
to most people, I would have to put my money on “hot.” Or maybe “humid.”
–But, I am going to take the high road. I won’t complain, at least not now that I am
luxuriating in my air-conditioned house. Besides, I came home with two truck and trailer
loads of exceptionally fabulous stuff, saw old friends, made some new ones and was so
impressed, once again, with the good humor and kind hospitality of the dealers.
–In addition to the things that they brought to sell, bottles of water, sandwiches, ice-
soaked towels, a chair in front of the fan were proffered. These offerings, many times made
by dealers I had never before met, were gratefully accepted… and not only refreshed my
body and spirit but added to my store of experiences that reinforce my belief that
people are good.
–As I sit here now, thinking and writing , I realize that I’ve changed my mind. The only
word that I could put my money on to describe Brimfield would be “gracious.”
