My mom worked in the office on Monday's and Tuesday's. I worked in the write up booth at the east end of the barn. The restaurant upstairs had the best hotdogs! Ahhh the smell of livestock as you were eating. Loved that place.

This was the Howell Livestock Auction in Howell, Michigan.

My mother in law ran the restaurant
Food was so good. One of many reason I married my wife

I wish I could tell you about all of the animals that got loose there. I and other Officers spent many hours chasing them off Grand River. Anyone remember Arnie that had the little building on the very corner of Chilson that fixed gas pumps?
