We had a wonderful Spark get together in Frankenmuth, Michigan yesterday! There were a total of seven Sparkers there.. We neded up taking pictures of each other, a nice tourist sitting watching a band play at the Bavarian Inn outdoors, was kidn enough to use all of our cameras and take groups shots of us,, We even took one of him taking one of us!
Joy and Kathy were standing right next to Pam and Delores without knowing that they were looking for each other. Kristy and I walked up, I told her that I KNEW that was Joy: who was wearing a hat and had a camera,, ( I saw a picture of her in a hat on her page before)). Steve was the only person Kristy and I knew from our previous meeting.. he lives in town.

We had laughs, saw pictures of Pam's beautiful new grandson, son and the rest of her family.
Turns out that Joy was already spinning her wheels as a trunk-slammer: they already went to Bronner's, some of the shops, were going to go to more today and tomorrow. We got to introduce Steve to four new sparkfriends,, we all laughed, told stories, and finally were the last ones left outside in the dark parking lot when the band quit, all had gone home. Joy and Kathy were still going to head up the street to places that may still be opened for business. We finally arrived home after 10pm!!

It was a great meeting and I wold love to have made it longer...

We went to the Habitat home dedication last evening. She had the highest turnout of all of the four homes they dedicated this year!!

Everybody loved our welcome mat,, I did not know ahead of time, BUT the floral pattern on the mat matched the flowers right next to her porch!!
One thing I did notice is how much I appreciate my savings plan to purchase central a/c a few years ago!! Her home was sweltering!! They had every door and window opened, all of the ceiling fans going full blast and box fans everywhere!! It was horrible,,
I am very glad it was not tonight: I would not have attended,, I almost fainted last night, the temp and humidity is about ten degrees higher now!!

Tomorrow is our Spark meet up with Joysgarden, summerlovn, steve06,lecates, tweetykc and I.. it is supposed to be 90 degrees tomorrow,, I am sure the humidity would steam clams,,
I will be ducking into every place that has a/c,,
Poor Joy, every day I update her on the weather channel online,, it gets hotter each day when I look at the forecast,, I started out telling her to pack some warm weather clothes, next day I told her capri's and cool shirts; day after that it was shorts, sleeveless tops, swimsuit,, yesterday it was sunscreen sunglasses, cooler full of ice. I am kind of scared to look at it today,, the only thing left to tell her is a hat, sandals, thongs and see-through anything!!!!
We Do have a nudist camp here in Michigan, I could steer them to that, it is on the western side of the state though.. nearer lake Michigan. but you never know!! Poor lady will never want to see this place again!!

I am very tired today, worked very hard at work, got lots of cardio in today,, tonight is the grand opening of the Habitat home for a friend.. I bought her a huge WELCOME mat for the front porch. She has a deck on the second story behind the kitchen, but no stairs to get up or down, so this will fit nicely on her front porch. We could hardly lift it into my trunk.. Needless to say, I am not wrapping it,,,

    Way to go PICKIE, I think that is a great idea a huge welcome mat. I had a new door put in a while ago and we had the sill dropped. Now my wonderful COCO Mat no longer fits under the door. It languishes in the driveway at the basement door, No-one uses that dooe any more it used to be hy sewing shop. HUGS.
PS I loved your comment about LEONE on Debs BLOG emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticonHave a good sleep. Pat in Maine. emoticon

Today after work we did run errands to C.U, dealership car wash, then on to shopping for a friend's housewarming gift for Thursday. She is moving into a Habitat home,, been waiting for two years,, they had bad management, fired the bad ones and finally finished her home.
Unlike years ago, now they are buying repossessed homes, gutting them, and saving a LOT of money on foundations, walls,etc..

We did find her a nice gift,, hope she likes it..
Sat with the neighbor by her pool and chatted for along time, now I am behind on the things I wanted to accomplish today,, oh well, we very seldom get to talk, so I am glad we did,, DD and I rushed home to get moving on things we needed to do...

    Taking time to chat is good when it is not done too often, It keeps the conversation fresh. HUGS I am glad your friend has a home now. Growing up with out a place to call our home was never easy. School got tired of my address changes. Too bad for them, they should have been more understanding. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
