A few of the people were wondering if it was because the county north of us was finishing up their county fair yesterday (the fairgrounds are maybe a 15-20 minute drive from here, so a lot of people from around here go).

The president had planned to have a notice put in the newspaper about it, but decided last minute not to do it because of the cost factor.

The president, drum major and I all put notice about it in our statuses on FB last week. And the middle school band teacher sent out an email about it.

So as far as spreading news by word of mouth goes, I think that was done quite well.

I don't know if the timing was just wrong with it being the last weekend before school started, or what.

It was raining here when I woke up this morning but it stopped by noon. We ended up with just shy of 1/2 inch.
ha ha No, we'll get the flash flood warnings next. Our road is currently like a river. It runs down and into the small washes which run down to the main ones. During monsoon we just don't get nice soaking rains.

County fair could be part of it and I'm sure having it before school started back may also have been a factor. Oh well. You can always try again.

Yeah no. You needed more notice and flyers going home to every student, which means having it after school starts. Avoid big conflicts like the fair.


You need to build it up big in the flyers, tempting prizes. Maybe two sets of flyers home to parents, two weeks apart.


We did a Silent Auction at the elementary in Florida and nobody had done one but we got word out good! That's the most important thing. People. Good luck with the next one!!!!

Have any of you seen Chopped Grill Masters. It was filmed at Old Tucson studios just a week after DS1 and I went there on a field trip back in march!

I was able to get one good shot of my boys in action close together. There's a color guard girl behind YDS twirling her flag; she really isn't wearing a wacky skirt. And yes, those ARE hay bales in the background. Gotta love our rural setting...
How tall is that handsome boy!

Anyway he came out at 11am and we did a 5 mile walk at Herrick Lake. Then went to Naf Naf for a very late lunch. Then we sat outside with Shadow and talked till about 6pm.

He had to head back in to the city for a performance -- his friend was in a show which is why he was in Chicago to begin with.

Anyway it was great to see him.
So, he didn't spend the night? Bummer.

Is skinny dipping a big deal? I'm reading another thread and it seems to be a big deal to some. To me, its not even note worthy. Different levels of comfort, I guess.

We had my brother's reception this weekend. It was nice. A steel drum band, which was really cool. DS2 was overwhelmed by the amount of people in the room and the noise of the band. We had to make several trips outside to the patio.

To me it depends on the context. I saw the thread but didn't read it yet.

DD has no activities tonight. Its strange! We're looking forward to nothing on a Monday night for once. No worries...the rest of the week makes up for it. Soccer practice and cheer practice tomorrow. Two games on Wednesday and I also chaperone a dance at school for cheerleading. I have a school council meeting on Thursday, DS1 has practice(DH is coach) and DD has practice, Friday is another dance that I chaperone and another soccer game. Saturday is a soccer game. Yup...thankful for Monday.

Right. I can see that. It would be grossly inappropriate at a family oriented public pool. Actually, I think it would always be inappropriate at a public pool. But, an ocean at night...I'm good with that.

Glanced at the thread before I go. Seems like if you're a conservative Congressman, it might not have been the best choice. ROFL


I have done it at a private lake with my very first boyfriend. Um, 40 years ago.

I agree...not a great idea. But still, not a big deal to me and not something that would make me not vote for someone.

OK I pulled up the article. I'm no religious scholar when I saw "Sea of Galilee" I shook my head. Why would he get naked for that? weirdly disrespectful.

Naked at Lake whatsit'sname anywhere else would have been fine.

Back.

Found some tops, a cardigan and a really nice fuzzy non-hooded jacket that'll probably be great for winters here.

Naked at Lake whatsit'sname anywhere else would have been fine.
I don't think that anyone found religious offense to it. I haven't read anything to indicate that. What I read is that people were offended that he did it while on a trip in official capacity as a Congressman and that he pushes legislation based on "morals". I can understand that, I guess.

The article I read stated it was against the law to be nude there. I skimmed the thread.

Looks like we found something that I'm more liberal about than y'all! Score!!! BB likes the nudity!

We went while in PR with about fifteen or twenty people, a couple who we just met while having drinks at the pool. Heck, I don't know. No one was offended. My brother was there too. Nudity just wasn't a big deal to us. We weren't running around naked on the beach, but swimming in the water in the dark didn't bother any of us.

ugh. Such is the news. I just read something saying it wasn't illegal. If it was illegal, then I have more of a problem with it. Still, not much of a problem but a problem nonetheless.
