Re: Happy 4th of July

A bit dry here too, but not terrible.  I did my part; I washed my car
yesterday.  It's been almost a year since I last washed it.  Even took all
the canvas off and scrubbed it.  Touched up stone nicks.  Vaccuumed.  Good
grief!  Straw - mulch - soil - paperclips - gloves-hats-snow scrapers -
packing peanuts, etc.  What a slob!  So I figured it would rain today.
Yesterday's paper had predicted 40% chance.  Today's papaer says 20%.  You'd
think after I went to the supreme effort of washing the car that we'd get a
torrential thunderstorm.

Oh, well, I have to consider the Wing Ding; rain wouldn't appeal to them.
The Gold Wingers are back in town for their annual Wing Ding festival.  They
were here in 2002 and they voted to come back here again this year.
Apparently they like the ice cream (big Edy's plant here, several Zestos and
DQs).  My niece, who works for Visit Fort Wayne, is working on the WD
convention and has to work all day today - her birthday.

neIN, Z5
