I changed my mind! No vintage baseball game pics tonight – I’ll get them up eventually, but I took a lot photos today, and I want to share those with you instead.
About 10 minutes before I should have been walking down the hill to work this morning I checked the radar on weather.com and saw a big blob of red and yellow closing in on the island. I hurriedly got all my stuff together and walked over to the Carriage Museum where I begged Denise for a ride downtown on one of the empty wagons, and she said, “Sure!” I climbed on with Josh and talked his ear off all the way down the hill. As we turned off Cadotte onto Market, the skies opened, and when he let me off at Astor St., I made a mad dash for the Stuart House – not anywhere close to as wet as I would have been walking down. Thank you Denise and Josh!
We went out to dinner at the Seabiscuit and soon Patty and Buz came in. Then Joyce (a blog reader) and her family arrived. We all ended up sitting at almost touching tables and having a great time talking and laughing with each other. Life in this small community is just so much fun!
Tomorrow we have plans to get out on the backroads and really give the Red Ryder a try-out. Charlie’s looking forward to seeing all the places we’ve been telling him about for the last two summers – back tomorrow night with pics of all the fun!
Note: Lowell’s cataract surgery went spectacularly well. He was home and resting by noon and is thankful for all the prayers.
P.S. Don’t you love how I’m only posting a photo or two during the week!
