We have had shows for three straight weekends, and I sandwiched a golf trip into the mix earlier this week. And we come home to begin the annual Fall Festival in our store on Monday, October 11. Oh yeah, I also had a birthday somewhere in there. So I have some catching up to do . . .
Last Monday, eight of us headed to eastern Kentucky for a three-day golf trip. Of course, we picked the three coldest days of the season so far – but we stayed dry.
We stayed in cabins at Carter Caves State Park. These are not your typical state park cabins – quite modern and very comfortable.
But the golf was played at Grayson Lake State Park, about 30 miles away. Grayson Lake has a nice golf course, but no lodge or cabins. So we commuted. There were lots of sights to behold . . .
The deer and wild turkeys were everywhere. But some sights were less than natural . . .
This is Leonard. At first glance, his visor looks ordinary. But then the view from behind is a clue that all is not as it seems. The visor is called “Flair Hair” – and he wore it constantly for three days . . .
Just because I thought the clouds were really pretty on Tuesday. And just because Ryan and Zoe missed me and he decided to text a picture to tell me.
I got home Wednesday evening, unpacked and repacked, and headed off to York, PA for this weekend’s show. The show was so busy that I didn’t have an opportunity to pull out my camera. But there were a few things that need to be shared . . .
Polly Weed had a rough week – and she says this had nothing to do with Norm. Apparently she fell and cracked her forehead, and this is what happens as the blood that pooled migrates south.
And this dunce cap was courtesy of the only two people at the show who knew it was my birthday. I was “crowned” by one as several hundred customers were urged to sing “Happy Birthday” to me on the loudspeaker by the other. Thanks, Nikki and Sheila . . .
And this was brought to my attention by a customer – it is the entrance to the women’s restrooms in the convention hall. I’m told that the sign in the middle (close-up at right) has been there all weekend . . .
