My long weekend was tiring, but we had a great time. No big troubles. I spent the better part of Saturday getting kites in the air for kids. There is still a kite on my roof. I enjoyed showing the kids how to feel the wind in the string. Odd, since I never flew a kite when I was a kid ......
The golf cart parade was great fun , too. I actually locked the store and rode. It occurred to me that I had never ridden in one before. Gavin, my grandson is usually here and I let him have my seat. It was going quite well until the lead cart (mine) lost power. It was a bad battery, which was new. Butch has a gas cart and he came to the rescue. He towed us out of the way and the parade continued.
The fireworks are over and I am heading south. My daughter is here and we are all set to leave in the morning. My Dad's prognosis has changed an we all want to spend time with him as much as we can while we can. Next month I will go with my other daughter, then with son in September. I will go every time I can.
