[Paul . . . oh, you knew that from previous photos.]

7-26-14-6 - Copy

 Patchouli @ Art-in-the-Park

7-27-14-1 - Copy

[Looked dreary, decided not to take the convertible.  Danny was up north with the pick-up.  His Smart Car was the smart choice.  Nokomis was a parking lot for miles in all directions – we drove right in, a kid cheerfully pointed us to this spot where no one else would fit.  We couldn’t have found a closer spot!  🙂   ]

7-27-14-2 - Copy

[There mostly to see Julie and Bruce . . . ]

7-27-14-3 - Copy

[The wind was at their back, so we were protected in the front row . . . ]

7-27-14-10 - Copy

[And it was howling too, with the temp in the mid-60’s.  Felt great, most of the time this is the hottest weekend of the year with temps in the 90’s.]

7-27-14-11 - Copy[Looking across Lake Agnes to downtown Alex . . . ]

7-27-14-17 - Copy

[If you grew up in Alex in the 50’s, you had swimming lessons here – the City Park beach.]

7-27-14-18 - Copy

[The place was hopping – and 3 degrees cooler, we could have had snow!]

[The cross-country coach told us later, we got the kettle corn from Megan, who with twin sister Bethany, are the best high school cross-country runners in the state.]

7-27-14-22 - Copy

[Say good-bye, Ruthie!]

7-27-14-23 - Copy

[The Smart Car is still there.  In this time frame, we also “experienced” Kalee Joy at the winery (too windy), The Salty Dogs at Bug-A-Boo (too noisy and crowded), and Components at SAWA (too noisy with bad sight lines).  Photographic evidence was hampered by the parentheticals.]

Up next:  Gotta get back to France.

reunion7-24-14-2

[They call me Mellow Yellow . . . The class of ’65 was astonished we weren’t “carded” during lunch at Bella’s?]
