Sunday-Sweet Corn-Singing

Well to begin with we went to church. Very good for us. Meeting was well attended and was reasonably well participated in. (There I go ending a sentence incorrectly.) Rusty & Childern were here and I don't know how long they are staying but the Bellew crew were present & accounted for.(There I go again.) After church we invited several over but everyone was going out to eat. We came home and grilled some steaks and fixed Olathe Sweet sweet corn. It was totally fab. You Oregonians don't know what you are missing. After dinner Randy & Cheri came by and we visited. I just love having them in Colorado. If they were to move I would bawl for a good long time. Jim & Angela Mc came by and picked greens with Scotty & Sara Esser and their kids. Then everyone came in and had ice cream. Nothing like chocolate ice cream to bring people together. Luke came with Jim & Ang and brought his instruments and we had an impromptu singing. It was well attended and well participated in by adults and children alike.

There was a mens meeting tonight and I told Alan he must go or I would refuse to listen to him gripe about anything for the next month. So There. So he went.

Oh I just remembered to day is a birthday for two of my very good friends from childhood and beyond. Happy Birthday Bro. Dennis & Bro. Dravin. Not that either of them ever read my blog but just in case. Dennis - you have only one year until you join the fogey crowd!

Well that is just about all I have to say at this point. Have a good week.

Olathe Sweet Corn is seriously the BEST! I took full advantage of the all you can eat at the Corn Festival. I think I had like 13 ears ;) I wish I could have picked some green beans, they are my favorite veggie by far! It was great being there, but even GREATER being home!!!!

I just got back from blueberry picking, and my hubby just walked in the door, so gotta go for now.

This little Oregonian does know what she's missing! I've been to the Olathe Sweet Corn festival and tasted those wonderful ears! They really are the best! They actually sell Olathe Sweet Corn out here, but it doesn't taste the same.

It sounds like you guys had a wonderful day filled with good brethren and good food. You just can't hardly beat a day like that.

I love sweet corn grown sweet on the stalk. No white sugar added right?
