Yes, it’s today! I’m thankful it wasn’t this hot 25 years ago!
The reception was held in the haymow with many American flags hung from the rafters and little white lights strung throughout. When I look through these photos I see so many folks that are no longer alive, kids that are grown with families of their own and friends I haven’t seen in years.
And believe it or not , the bride was NOT as interesting as what might be in the barn downstairs! Haha!
(Ellen – recognize anyone here? Smile!)
Here is a photo taken at a Christmas event just to show the decor.
Prior to the reception we rented scaffolding to clean the beams and rafters and to hang the flags. (I have spent way too much time searching for those pictures – when or if I ever find them I’ll add them to a post. Ugh.)
So I am celebrating today by corralling the puppies and Rick is on his way to Mayo – no pet sitter and it’s too hot to leave them home alone.
I wrote about the wedding and all in the Goat Gazette – there was even a special Wedding Edition! Sounds pretty funny now.
So it’s really hot today and we’re staying inside as much as possible. I’ll be refilling water buckets several times for chickens, goats and geese. The pond has not been cleaned so the geese can’t swim to cool off.
Stay cool, All! One of my next posts will be questions to readers so watch and answer. I keep notes and those who have had surgery for example, need to provide updates. I’m also going to review our old book At the Lake – there are several great quilts that I can offer as $5 patterns. Does anyone remember our very first book On Behalf of Chickens? Take a look at the cover quilt – Connie is working hard on this remake.
I know UPS just dropped a package at my gate and I know what it is! It’s an advance copy of our new book coming out in September- I gotta go get it!
Happy Flag Day!
