Cliff took a vacation day Friday: We'd planned to go to the Harley open house early, but that was just going to be too much of a whirlwind day, so we skipped it. We went to my daughters' girls Grandparents' Day festivities at school shortly after noon; I could kick myself for not taking my camera along.
Then we went for a scenic motorcycle ride through Arrow Rock to Boonville and spent a little over an hour at the tractor show. We stayed off the Interstate as much as possible both going and coming, and it was a nice ride.
Saturday we had planned to ride to Cliff's family fish-fry on the motorcycle, with his sister and her husband. But rain threatened, so we took the car instead. It was a nice, comfortable day, and I got to know some of Cliff's cousins and second-cousins better. Last year we had all toured Ron's house, under construction at the time; and I was anxious to see how it was shaping up; they aren't living in it full-time yet. The balcony level is for grandchildren, when they come to visit.
Sunday afternoon Cliff's brother Phil and his wife had a surprise anniversary party thrown by their kids that we attended, and we saw many of the same folks we'd seen the previous day at the reunion.
Wow, what a run-around weekend we had!
