This was at a (very) small town's "Homecoming Weekend". 30 or so
antique/crafts vendors on the church lawn, car show, etc. We left about
a half hour before they closed the only 3 roads out of town for a 2 hour
Best part of the morning was the tent with the Big Green Egg and Traeger
grills. Free wood fired pizza, pork loin, bacon and that old time favorite,
"seasoned and smoked" Goldfish crackers. ;-)

I gotta admit that I don't really agree with the sentiment in that song.
I like doing adult things with my 4 kids a whole lot more than I ever
enjoyed doing the kid stuff with them. The teenage years, with sports
and school projects were fine, but the diaper/toddler/grade school
days? Nope, not a spec of nostalgia.
Maybe having 4 kids in 6 years will do that to a person.

My issue is that once they moved out, they kept moving! I bought a trailer when my
kids raced in the Soap Box Derby. A 13 year span that ended a decade ago. I still
have the trailer, mainly because *someone* has moved almost every year since.
When I hauled Derby cars, it was set up with 3 rolling trays, using garage door tracks and
Now the walls are fitted with E-track so I can tie down furniture.
2 of the 4 kids are now thousands of miles away, so I don't think I'll be helping them next
time. The closer 2 (merely hundreds of miles away) will probably need my help again.
Nice trailer!! I never had kids but I have a lot of nieces and nephews. I'd
visit them for a while but I'd leave when they started getting fussy. My sister
would give me that look and say 'coward' under her breath. All but two are
grown and have their own kids now.

I still have the rack system stored under my deck. My kids aren't showing
any signs of having kids, so if you want to get your grand-nieces and nephews
into Soap Box Derby racing, you can have the hardware. They can start racing
at age 7.
I might even toss in some world-championship winning secrets. My son was
13 when he won the World Championship in the Masters Division. That earned
our family a ride in the Good Year Blimp. It was a pretty cool experience.
Let me know if you want any more information. I'm still involved with my
local race organization.
Thanks for the offer but I don't think there's a market in my extended family.
:-) I'll be 80 in Feb. and all my siblings are only 3, 5, 10 and 16 years
younger than me. Most all my nieces and nephews are in their 40s except a couple
of very late bloomers whose kids are 5 years an a 3 month old infant.

That is a nice one, but alas, it was a one day competition on Saturday.
We left before the show was over to avoid getting stuck in town by the
parade taking over the one main street. We went back later that night
to watch the local acting company perform Gilbert and Sullivan's "Yeoman
of the Guard". We tried to find out which quilt won, but the sidewalks -
not that there actually were any - were rolled up and put away by 7PM. We
were able to walk right down the middle of Main St. Saw maybe 2 cars in
a half hour. Big difference from earlier that day.
Hey, thank her for voting anyway! ;-)

quilt and those who hand quilt (her guild does hand quilting). Either way
, the end products are beautiful.

I can't help but picture rival guilds playing a "friendly" softball game wh
Margaret slides into second, spikes high. The ensuing bench clearing brawl
be a sight to behold.
