The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

This morning, DH and I took a pumpkin and zucchini to the county fair.  We entered them in the largest vegetable contest.  I'm sure no one's pumpkin can beat ours.  We could barely load it into the back of the truck.  A worker from the fair helped DH load it onto a drivable cart.  They will judge them later this morning.  Too bad the fair is closed today.  It did give us two more fair tickets.  DH is going to give them to some friends that might not be able to afford them.  He's a sweetie, that way.

BTW, I won 2 blue ribbons and a red on my earlier entries.

July 3rd Lesson

Every three months I have to give the Presidency lesson on the first Sunday of the month.  Since it was the day before the 4th of July, I decided to talk about something I know a little about, WWII.  I film the lessons each week and post them on YouTube for those that don't get a chance to see them.

This is a pic of my Dad.  They must have decided to take pics on the spur of the moment, because he's only wearing his jacket over his civies.

My guess is the photo is from 1945-46.  It's not marked.  This would make Dad 24 or 25-years-old.  My lesson is in 3 parts, below.

I hope you enjoy it.

Little Saigon

Since our Tuesday class is over for the summer D and K and myself decided to do things to occupy our Tuesday's.  This week we went to Little Saigon. None of us had ever really been before and so off we went.

Whale Watching

No whales, but we did see sea lions and lots of dolphins.

I've got a new blog!  I'm a pretty creative person, so I decided to snap pictures of anything that might inspire me.Good Muse Pix. ... And in a shameless ploy to get more followers...I am giving away a bracelet. (I made it.)

My loyal 15 followers get three automatic chances (yippee!!) since they publicly follow me.  If you sign up as a follower I will enter your name in the drawing.  If you sign up to follow both blogs you get two chances.  I will put the names in a hat and the lucky winner gets the bracelet.  How easy is that? I promise I will take better photos tomorrow. The colors are much nicer than this photo shows.
