G home by 5 and we got the white car and headed to Ed's Odds & Ends and to pick up our auction wins. G was unaware of the overall plan... Ed G and I set up a chute in his warehouse and then positioned G up there. Soon some old friends I used to work with at D1 showed up and G had to throw down 159 penguin cookie jars down or chute and they loaded them up.  NOT DONE YET!!! Then the Scouts showed up and G had to throw another 150 penguin cookie jars! we moved 329 cookie jars in total. I was ready to go but G and Ed started walking around looking at baseball cards... Ed was ready to make deals and G was ready to buy. G and Ed made deals for another hour and G spent another $300 on about 300,000 baseball cards! we got everything loaded up and headed to waffle house for dinner.

L out in the yard and she got her pressure washer she got for her 50th bday out and SHE LOVES IT! she was outside all day cleaning things off with her sprayer. She got G to help for a minute and he thought it was cool too. While working I got a strange text today... 'Why does your kid look like he escaped from Azkaban?". Well that's an easy answer; because he hasn't gotten his hair cut in the last 2 years... Hung out around the house for the evening.

Home and had our treats on the back porch and then L&I headed over to the Pettit's to pick up Chris & Karen and head to the concert at Headley Park. There weren't that many folks at the concert, of course it was 90 out, but we had our tent and made some shade and listened to the music and chatted. After the concert we headed to Flanagan's for some pizza, wings, beer, more music and conversation. It was a lovely afternoon and evening activities and we got home about 9:30.
