The dang computer is in the shop……..again. What the hell? Every few months we are shelling out money for the d.a.m.n. thing. And, well, I’m a professional blogger now and I must not be thwarted in my attempts to spew things online. The reason I know I’m a professional blogger is because it has spilled over into my real life. Like this…..When I called the bun man (that’s what I call him) to make my order for the 800 buns I needed for the big lunch I asked him what time I needed to meet him for the delivery. When he told me between 9:00 and 9:30 a.m. I blurted out without thinking “I LOVE YOU!!” Because when you have a blog and you frequently leave comments on other blogs you do so with great enthusiasm, lots of exclamation marks, and overuse of capital letters. And the reason I said, “I LOVE YOU!!” is because in years past I’ve always had to meet him between 5:30 and 6:00 a.m. Needless to say I think he suddenly became very wary of doing business with me.
Anyway, blah, blah, blah…….so the computer thing….. I only have a couple of pictures from Friday. But with the help of some great volunteers we cooked up 220 lbs. of BBQ beef, cut and plated about 400 servings of dessert, poured 100’s of glasses of tea and soda, surrounded by men in bib overalls and seed caps, farm implements, garden test plots, and University of Missouri Ag teachers. I was so tired afterwards that I went to bed at 9:00 p.m.
Here is one of the pictures I took from one of the event tents. The first photo is the original and the second I played with it on Picnik.
P.S. These are the last official days for signing up for the Illuminated Phrase. Thanks to everyone who has signed up already. I can’t wait to see what the projects will be. When I get the computer back I will list the participants in a post.
