This weekend, we went back to Toppenish, Washington for the annual Washington State Patrol Retirees Association reunion. Cary retired from the State Patrol a few years back, and it is really neat to meet the people that he used to work with.
It has been a very relaxing time. We didn't bring the dogs, and I am so glad that we didn't. It is very hot here (98*) and humid. It wouldn't have been much fun for them, but I had fun swimming in the pool yesterday.
I have the 5th wheel set up the way that I want it now, and am enjoying the fruits of my labor. The new lamps are just what we needed, and it is great to have the laptop.
I took these pictures from my cell phone last night. That silk bouquet is something that Cary won at the auction for $60. Amongst the flowers are little bottles of booze! He thought that it was a great design idea.
It has been fun getting to know Cary's old friends and my new friends better. We have been spending a lot of time with Lee and Fran. Fran is a retired teacher. She designs and sells some of her work on a website called "Teachers Pay Teachers". I'm going to look into that; I think that I might be able to sell some of my flashcards over there. Fran also gave me some tips on formatting my writing work and using Powerpoint.
Well, that is about it. I really haven't taken any pictures this weekend except for these. Here is a link the photos of the Toppenish murals that I took last year though, if you want to take a look: "CLICK HERE".
Hope that you all have a wonderful upcoming week!
