Weekend recap

Thursday we did go out and celebrate Mary holding down a steady job for eight years.  We went to the Cumming Fair.  It was opening night and admission was free!  Parking, rides, and games were not free… however we did restrain and only rode one ride.  There was a lot going on at the fair this year.  Lots of “carnie” shows.  Two in particular interested Mary; an elephant act and a tiger act.  Both were put on by the same outfit.  It was the first time during an animal act that we’ve seen the cats let into their arena to stretch and play before and after their performance.  These folks not only stated that they really care about their animals, but it showed in their actions.  The elephant was not chained in between performances but actually had a pen that she was free to roam around in.  Pictures are posted.

Friday came and went without much fan fare, but on Saturday Mary’s company Royston held their annual picnic.  Usually they set up tents at the plant, have a BBQ lunch catered, and set up a mini “fair-like” atmosphere (games, blow up slides, ball houses, etc.), but this year the company rented an arcade facility from 10 am to 2 pm.  The facility cooked hotdogs, hamburgers, grilled chicken and all the usually picnic sides (cole slaw, potato salad, baked beans, etc.).  Originally we didn’t plan to stay the whole time, but we really were having fun watching air hockey and playing some pool… listening to the karaoke and watching the rock climbing… so we stayed there until 2-ish.  Pictures are up online.

And that brings us to today… a rather boring day of chores, but hey they have to be done.
