Fireman's Parade - Marching Billy

Yes, I know they are all out of step! Billy looked at the picture and just shook his head. He's a senior next year and is the section leader of percussion...so this will be his first problem! LOL

I worked until 3; the parade started at 3. The foreman let me change at 2:45 and he was standing at the time clock when I came out of the bathroom (from changing). He called me over and said, "Go ahead and leave, I'll punch you out at 3." Soooo, I got to leave 7 minutes early. I snuck around the back streets and found a parking spot only one block from Main Street, right near the judges stand. Granted I parked in the middle of a huge mud puddle in an undeveloped lot at the corner of the RR tracks...but still!

Oh...in case you don't know...Billy is the one on the left...with the quints...and he **is** in step!

Sis's Herbs

Some of you know about my sister's affection towards lavender...and her hubby's love of peppermint and spearmint. Well, here's part of her herb garden...and a close up of her biggest lavender plant. Much to my dismay I can not, under any circumstances, get lavender to winter-over in my garden/landscape. I have peppermint, spearmint, and lemon balm taking over the entire 2 acres...but no lavender!

Another Trip to Sis's House

...and I took pictures this time! :) Remembered the camera...remembered extra batteries...and the weather cooperated enough to take pictures!!! It rained like a bugger on Friday night while we were eating supper, then not again until we were home Sunday night. It was hot, though...hotter than the dickens...and muggy too! Oh the joys of living next to a huge river!

Here's Sis's house...a view from the back. The house, their garage-turned-into-storage-shed, their garden, their birdbath and just a wee bit of one of the many bird feeders. I took this standing up on the hill, almost in the cemetery.

Ahh, Mom and Sis...standing at the top of the hill where the above picture was taken. See the Cemetery??? :) Oh, and if April sees this, she's liable to kill me...she hates her picture taken!

Another picture from my vantage point in the cemetery...the river that is just three blocks and across a six lane highway...this was taken without using any zoom and from exactly the same place as the house picture was taken.
