Where are you guys? LOL I hardly have anything worth reading, but I like to read what you guys have going on.
Today I've done a bit of gardening, dh is mowing, and later plan to go see a frail uncle that's not doing well. Who knows after that. Yesterday we spent 5 hrs in the sun at an auction, all dh bought was a metal cabinet for $27. Bil bought a box blade. Had fun though!
Everyone have a great day!!
...even though I am a newbie here. This is the biggest weekend of the summer with hundreds of people in town.
I slept really, really long and well last night--best in months. Woke up on the late side and we went to the community breakfast at the park put on by the PTO. Then we found a spot in front of the park for the parade:
--Started with a color guard of veterans, I'd say mostly WW2 and Korea.
--Pickup truck with king and queen sitting on lawn chairs in the back.
--Mayor in a convertible borrowed from the pharmacist in the town 20 miles away.
--Float from the Baptist church: Wizard of Oz, followed by kids in Oz costumes throwing candy with Bible verses attached.
--Marching unit from TOPS club wearing matching tie-dyed T-shirts.
--Guy in a chicken costume riding in the back of a pickup with his two little foo-foo dogs.
--'69 Dodge Charger painted like the General Lee.
--Four old cars in various states of disrepair, including a 1940 Chevrolet business coupe like the one DH's parents had when he was a little boy..
--Two fancy-dan fire trucks from the St. Maries Volunteer Fire Department, which services this area.
--One 1948 fire truck from the East Side Co-op Fire District from north of town.
--Two ambulances from the Harrison volunteer EMTs.
--Sheriff's SUV trailering two Wave Runners with cop lights on them (they patrol the lake).
The parade was 1-1/2 blocks long, lasted 20 minutes, and was a huge hit! I was surprised it didn't include the snowplow, which is a 4WD pickup with a load of gravel in the back.
We went to the Baptist church service after the parade and walked home. The EMTs are barbecuing hamburgers in the park all after noon. After the barbecue, I'm going to hit the yard sale at the museum and then we're going to give boating another try--having problems with the idle, so keep your fingers crossed. For those of you coveting your neighbor's boat, don't forget that it's just a hole in the water that you throw money into.
We are coming home in the morning.
