How did kids nowadays get to this spot? I didn't have a party OR a graduation until I finished 8th Grade, and then it was just a graduation.
This kid is cleaning up!!! That's over 50 bucks in his hand!!! This is Braden, my good friend's grandson. I'm sure there will be at least three more graduations in his future.
This is a shorty today, as I'm off to the fairgrounds at 5:30 to help cook breakfast burritos for the kids and parents bringing animals to the fair. It's going to be a hot once, since the temps will be in the 90's today and up to 100 by Wednesday. Hot stove, hot kitchen, hot food ... it's going to be a hot week. Like a sweat box ... so maybe I'll lose even MORE weight!!
I'm showing this image again because I love it. I think it's the best one of Union Pacific 4014, taken by Mike Harriman. I would love to have this hanging on my wall. I think the 4014 got much more publicity than the 150th celebration!! This is the only one in existence in working order.
A quick note about the ice cream. You may not want to leave it in the freezer more than an hour or two before eating. I left it overnight and it required a hammer and chisel to dislodge it from the jar. 30 seconds in the microwave worked too. With every bite I kept thinking "how could you possibly lose weight while eating all this FAT!!"
And so I'm off .... at 5:15 in the morning (what was I thinking when I volunteered for this one??)
I may get up really early in the morning, but I NEVER leave the house before 9:00!!!
