Happy Sunday!  I hope that it was a perfect day for you and yours. For me it was a learning moment.  Yesterday I had such a great day we saddled up and headed out to WoodCraft to pick up our woodturning club’s items for the Jacksonville Fair and deliver them to the fairgrounds.  Kat and I left home about 9 and hung out at WoodCraft until noon.  Well thank God we thought to bring some warm clothes!  It was a balmy 50 degrees but we got to spend some time with our turning buddies and catch up.  We ended up with 35 entries and they are stunning.  Bernard and Susie met us at the fair to help unpack the boxes – Thank you guys!  The fair people will set the display and next Saturday is judging.

We were out of there by 1:30 heading to The Dreamette for an well deserved ice-cream cone and then home for a nap.  I got up about 6 and Kathy fixed pork barbecue sandwiches for dinner.

Guys I will be brutally honest – I overdid it this weekend and I can barely think! My throat hurts and I am weak. That is why I started with the lesson of the day.  Next weekend I am only planning one fun thing and if it is a must do, I’ll have my back-up buddies in place. So, with a grin and a groan I am going to bid you goodnight and head for the bed. I had a great weekend, learned some stuff and tomorrow is another day.  Peace Out
