We went to the 2nd Annual River City Arts Festival and it was funtastic, so much to look at and enjoy! The Garlic container and the Driftwood House came home with us.

Buddy had his grooming, they give him a scarf every time. Next time he will get a Blueberry Facial. Sounds good. I could use one lol. He is all ready to go Visiting.

Playing around with the Garlic, planning next years crop. The spinach is growing.
Summer is so busy, this time in the season. Fall is looking good. Everything in its time. Around here the whole month has been hot and sunny and there has been lots going on. My dear old Dad is off to Nashville for a Shaklee Convention where he will Celebrate his 93rd years young Birthday on August 4th. Happy Birthday Dad!!!

You are an inspiration to me and so many others.
