Where are we today ?
clic on a pic to enlarge itThis morning started off much cooler and gonna be like this for a few days now mid 70's I find almost chilly, compared to what we have been having. Started with a nice walkabout town about 7:30 and after a few blocks was called into good friends Marc and Erin's house for a coffee. Nice to see them again and chat for a long while. Finally got home about 9:30 and of course Suzie wondering who I got talking to, small town ya know.
Just puttered around for a while and an early lunch, then 1 'clock around the corner to pay our respects to the family of a good friend Kenn who had passed away recently.
Back home and Suzie's Dad met with us to follow us down the back roads about 2 miles, to Elmer and Kay's place for a dual function at 2 o'clock. First to Celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary and secondly the yearly "Pa Feast" with Elmer being Pa and Kay as Ma. They have been doing this for I think close to 60 years as well. Elmer was the arena Manager in Plattsville for most of those years too I believe.
