Before I start my actual blog today I wanted to share a couple of pictures of friends I had a chance to spend time with in the last couple of weeks
|I was thrilled to be able to spend time with my friends Lois and Scott and......|
|I also had a chance to meet up with entertainer friend Kerry Grombacher when he did a concert at the Tigard Library last week. Joe and I had the opportunity to meet him a few years ago in Tombstone, Arizona. It was good to see him again and visit a few minutes before the concert.|
I love to go to fairs. Town fairs, county fairs, state fairs...... it doesn't matter. I missed the Clackamas County fair and Rodeo this year, but I'll be there again next year.
So that was the first trip to the fair. The second time was Saturday. After going to the concert at the library in Tigard with my daughter in law and granddaughter, we picked up my son David from his work and off we went to the fair again.
The young lady on your left is my granddaughter Cassie and her mom (my daughter in law Jennifer). They bought new hats at the fair and I brought mine from home. The scarves around our neck are coolers. It was a bit warm that evening.

Well friends, this ends part 1 of "Fair Season". Part one you ask? Is there a part 2 coming? Oh yeah,.....I'll keep you posted. In a few days I'm heading for my sister's in Washington to the Big One. The Washington State Fair. I'm 76 years old and except for a few years when I was living in Alaska and Idaho, I've been going to the fair since elementry school when they let school out for the day and the kids were given free tickets into the fair....
It's been 10 months now since I've been on this journey of living life alone. When friends ask how I'm doing my answer with a smile is "less tears and more smiles" I've expanded my borders as to how far I feel comfortable driving. While I'm in Washington this time I'm driving further North to Lynden, WA to spend time with my sister in law before heading home. That will be my last trip with the car until next spring. I've put in an application for a volunteer position some where one day a week for now and will say more about it after I hear if I've been accepted. More great grandbabies are on their way and I'm loving the love that my adult kids shower me with. I am one blessed woman!!
Bye for now
I'll love you for ever and for always
