My dear husband and I enjoyed the visit of our daughter and her husband over the weekend. We celebrated my father’s 80th birthday with a family dinner at Silver Lake Restaurant; attended the 4th of July picnic in Eskridge, Kansas on Saturday; did a little geocaching at the Eskridge Cemetery; found a little dog named Pugsley and was instrumental in getting him back to his mistress; sorted through baby things (no I am not a grandmother); watched a fantastic fireworks display at Lake Wabaunsee; and stayed up to 1:00 A.M. listening to our neighborhood revelers’ fireworks! Needless to say, Sunday was as busy, but the evening was pleasant enough for a motorcycle ride over to Alma.
We did take a leisurely ride around the perimeter road of the lake early Saturday evening. Cars were everywhere; motorcycles were everywhere; and the golf carts monopolized the roadway and the smell of gunpowder filled the air! Additionally, our little neighbor (named Ray), who came by our house on his big-wheels trike, said that the cops were giving tickets to a lot of people. Sure enough, the Sherriff’s Patrol was on duty, watching for speeders and golf cart violators. Yep, the most traffic at the lake and on the lake that I’ve seen in quite a while.
But it was fun! I hope your holiday was fantastic and safe. Until next time, take care and God bless you and your family! Vicky
