Shirlee and I spent Friday quilt shop hopping. Thanks to her knowledge of Des Moines and willingness to drive, I got to see 4 very nice quilt shops. Highlight of the day was the shop in Ames and going to Laura's to see her and her beautiful children. Thanks, Shirlee. Now I still have to put my stash away.
Saturday was the benefit for Ross Butterbrodt with a bean bag toss tournament which Sue entered. There was a car show and shine in which we put the Edsel. After the supper they had the auction of many, many items and there was a silent auction also. Hopefully a lot of money was donated to a very deserving family.
Yesterday after spending the morning doing corn; we took the Edsel to Tipton for a show at the retirement home and then on a cruise through Clarence past Ross' house, Oxford Junction and Anamosa to Stone City where the majority of the cruisers ate supper. We left from there and picked up Mother to go to the Lowden Lions' pork chop sandwich/sweet corn supper. Today--back to reality!
