Ann's visit

One of my friends from "old" work, Ann, came for a visit to New Johnsonville TN. She came for some fishing but as it turned out the fish said "it's too hot, let's dive to cooler water." So she and Theda didn't catch anything. Hated it as I was looking forward to a fish fry. Oh well, maybe later in the year when things get cooler.

On Saturday we decided to go to McEwen, TN for an Irish Picnic. This is a picnic put on by St Patrick's church and school. Now my idea of an Irish Picnic was not what I got. There was bluegrass music and barbecue and lots and lots of games for the kiddes. We ate a barbecue sandwich and milled around to look at things. We had stopped earlier and voted and got the little stickers that said I voted today and it was a good thing because there were all kinds of politics going on. Every possible candidate was represented. I was a little disappointed in the picnic but we still had a good time.

We came back and I fixed my salmon dish and we played dominoes into the evening. Got a surprise few texts from my BFF, Becky. She was at a casino in Henderson NV celebrating her 40th wedding anniversary. As the texts continued it was clear that Becky may have been indulging in some Long Island Ice Teas. Yep, sure enough she gave us a call so we could celebrate with her. Wow, 40 years is a very long time. Congratulations to Becky and Ron.

Ann and Theda tried their hand again on Sunday morning to fish. They went out on the boat but the fish were not biting there either. Oh well! We had a good time visiting with each other and getting caught up. Ann is changing jobs and is really looking forward to doing something different in a better work environment. WTG, Ann.
