25th Anniversary Celebration

John and I wanted a local thing. So didn't invite everyone we knew from everywhere, mostly just local folks that we knew, and put a little announcement in our church bulletin. It was pretty scalable, we'd supply drinks, everyone else would bring a potluck dessert.

We rented the local pool, which was available on Sundays after 7.

For the last two weeks at about 3 or 4 a thunderstorm roared in, wind blowing, rain falling, and thunder and lightning cracking all through the sky.

Today, for the first time in all that time, we didn't get the huge cloud build up. There were clouds drifting by, but they were thin, not the big thunderheads we get around here, and they simply cut the worst of the sun. By 6:30 it was obvious it wasn't going to thunderstorm, and we loaded up the van with 5 gallons of my ginger ale, 3 gallons of lemonade, and a couple gallons of iced tea for those that didn't want more sugar with their dessert along with our swim gear. We'd bought cups, plates, plastic utensils, and got them all in a couple of bags as well.
