A Day Out

Thanks to our good friends of many years, Donna and Terry, we were able to go to the Shad Festival yesterday.

That brought back memories of times past except we were in our hey day and went at night for the dance....  Streets were closed off and a band was installed on a flat bed trailer loaned by a local hauling company.  The music was of course then Country and Shag was the dance......

That was more years ago than I want to reveal but we came away with memories to remember now that we are to tired at night to shag.........

We left home about 11:00 and headed to Grifton......  Forgot the parade was at that time so we went to Spring Fling at Happy's instead......



They were having a big sale and we never want to miss a sale at Happy's..................


Terry and Lem found a place to rest by the refreshment table while Donna and I feathered our nest....  I found some  great things for gifts at Christmas....  Maybe I will get them done this year..  Time will tell.


Then we went back to Grifton.............  Funnel Cakes.........  Hot dogs......Thai food........BBQ.....sausage dogs........More food than I can remember........



Lots of people enjoying a fine day among friends......


Unbelievably we had just arrived when we met Jason and Kim.....  Even got to see the grands and wee grands....... 


Small town America.........  These dedicated local civic leaders have a real grasp of what a budget means and makes the most of the funds they oversee........


Found Miss Grifton in the crowd and she was glad to have her picture taken........



In spite of the attention of the beauty queen Lem was glad to go home with he queen of our castle... ME....


Found a vendor selling steamed oysters........  One of Lem's great favorites is oysters so we got steamed ones to bring home.....

Did I mention that we were in bed by nine?
