Due to Kidney Ordeal I will not be selling at the Reno HAN Swap Meet

 Back in mid-March, I had some problems with what I thought were impacts from the vaccine I had gotten at the VA for the virus.  Serious coughing, lower back pain, and stomach upset, so I went to the ER in Fernley, Nv and after some tests and x-rays, etc., they sent to the Reno Renown ER where I stayed going thru more test and cleaning out my system.  It was determined that the Reno VA hospital had been giving me 5 pills for high blood pressure, which I did not have, and over 500 mg pills for gout, which the medical nephrologist said was overkill.   Anyway, I no longer take the meds for HBP, reduced gout meds to 300 mg, but now all of that has caused some serious impact on my kidneys. 

I am seeing a Renown health medical nephrologist who is monitoring my blood pressure, gout uric acid, and kidneys to ensure I will not have to go on special kidney treatments. 

Based on the above I had to cancel my spaces for this year's Reno Hot August Nights swap meet and hopefully will recover for next year's event.  For the time being, I am selling online through my website at, at my various e-commerce sites at,, and so you should be able to find the classic car or racing tee, ball cap, or flags there at the swap meet prices. 

Contact me at my e-mail addresses;,, or Also, I am at for the time being

Thanks and enjoy the HAN week in Reno, Nevada
