To Market, To Market (and 2 Winners)

To market, to market, to buy a fat pig;
Home again, home again, jiggety-gig.
To market, to market, to buy a fat hog;
Home again, home again, jiggety-jog.
To market, to market, to buy a plum cake;
Home again, home again, market is late.
To market, to market, to buy a plum bun;
Home again, home again, market is done.
Forget paper and forget plastic. 
You can even forget the eco-friendly reusable totes
for carrying groceries.

I could find excuses to go grocery shopping
(which I hate)
carrying this old market basket!
I got it tonight at the auction and I can't
wait for our kitchen remodel to be finished
so I'll have a pretty place to store my dish towels.
It gives me a good excuse to buy new dish towels.

I might just sleep with it tonight.

Well, it was number...

Well...ignore the "1" - the winner is "59".
I decided that whatever number I received
when I got to the auction would be the winning number.
(but you can't get a number less than 100 that isn't already reserved,
so I knew I'd have to ignore the disregard the "1")
I like to find fun ways to find the winners!
# 59 was...
