We don't have the Labor of Love here. But we do have a two day event every spring. It is for 8 hours both on a Saturday and Sunday at a local high school gym. They do free preventative medical care, dental and vision on a first come first served basis. They usually see about 900 patients over the two days. Like you said, it really is just a drop in the bucket of what is needed, but every bit helps.

Sending you a box of virtual apples so that you can make some virtual apple pies and cobblers!

Hah! I would then be posting to complain that I don't know what to do with all the venison. Now, elk meat? That would work nicely!

I grilled a bone in rib eye steak, with baked potato, bbq beans, Olathe Sweet sweet corn for supper with home made peach ice cream (used Palisade peaches).


Hope everyone has an enjoyable Labor Day tomorrow.
Happy (belated) birthday Jim! I will turn 67 myself on the 25th of September. We are growing ooooOLD! LOL!

JRR: I beat you..... I'm 76.



jim9251: Happy Birthday to you!! Sounds like you had a nice meal!


I am willing to bet there are more than a few of us who are surprised at how our lives turned out. Could have been better but could have been a heckuvalot worse!!!

Just got back from our last concert in the park for the year; a big band performance by the community band. Last night was the Bryan Symphony Orchestra which played everything from Brahms to West Side Story. Both absolutely beautiful night to be outside; low 70s and not a cloud in the sky, just stars. Treated ourselves each night to ice cream from Cream City afterwards; finishing up the season in style. The summer sure zipped by. We do still have Shakespeare in the Park later this month; Much Ado About Nothing.

Can't seem to shake the warm weather this year. Looks to be in the high 80s for the next week. Did see the first sign of autumn today; just a touch of red starting on a maple tree down the street from us.

That sounds wonderful JRR. Glad you have the chance to enjoy it. I remember reading your posts from the start of your journey. So glad you found your 'spot'.

If it wasn't for my allergies, I would be your neighbor. But Arizona is working great for me.

It is interesting how things work out, isn't it. Eighteen months ago would you have thought that you would be living in the Sierra Vista, Arizona area? And we were so sure that we would retire in the mountains of North Carolina that we even bought 2 acres of land there for a retirement home.

And yet, here we both are, both happily settled in somewhat unexpected areas.
