We first placed the bikes by the boat dock and the kayak by the lake at the end of our street. We then went home and started running from our house to the lake. We jumped in the kayak and paddled to the boat dock, where we grabbed our bikes and road home!
All the ladies had the same name except me. They were Susan, Suzanne and Sue. I felt left out.
Last year we had it at our house and Miss Carol's farm, but this year we'll use the church grounds.
On a sad note, Miss Carol passed away yesterday. She had suffered for many months from a stroke earlier this year. We'll miss her, and and are glad for the 4 years we enjoyed being her next door neighbor.

We went to the Pikes theater, because it is only showing in a few theaters. It was a small theater with only two screens, but happily, with stadium seating. We arrived at 4:30 for the 4:50 showing, and got the last two adjacent seats not on the front row! There were already 45 people in the theater, and none of them under 70! We wondered if they all knew something we didn't know!
We loved the show and enjoyed seeing it with an audience where nobody was tempted to kick our chairs or crawl over us in the middle of the show to go to the bathroom. We might go back again someday!
We played men against the women, and I'm sad to say the women went down in defeat. We almost pulled it off. Our last category (X-rated movies and their stars) seemed an unlikely challenge for a bunch of Mormons. Happily, one of the ladies knew and embarrassingly large number of those! But don't worry, M! We won't tease you about it for the rest of your life!
Sorry about the shaky video (by me)! Here is Swallowtail Jig by B4.
And here they are again, on Country Roads!
Here we are on Shoo Fly Pie, the only song we have memorized! We also did Berry Picking Time, which was a lot of fun!

Right behind her was a bulldozer, trying to smooth out the ruts in an area that is a running stream bed in the rain! He was having a hard time getting traction in the soft mud!
She said arms and legs from amputees were buried all over the city, and pop up now and then. Ross said they should have put them in the Armory. Ed said they could have put the legs in the Leggery. What would one keep in the skullery?

We got home last night to find my bonsai plant had flourished during our absence. We had left it in a giant Zip lock bag and well watered. It created it's own ecosystem. The second one had passed away peacefully just prior to our trip. I hope we can keep this one alive another year or so.
