|Today's post continues on with our day spent at Gold Discovery Day's. After packing up our chairs we headed down the block to the car show. It was a bit warm as the day progressed but the sun kept moving in & out of the clouds making it fairly nice at least a portion of the time. There was a large turnout once again which was exciting to see as it's been pretty slow here in town so far this summer. I guess the economy has hurt many families and this whole area does not have the normal amount of traffic for this time of year. There were many really nice vehicles on show. We're so impressed with the amount of time & effort involved in making them so. They certainly deserve to win a trophy. And they give out some interesting one's! All handmade I think, you be the judge as you look at the photo of them.
Our buddies, Pleasant Valley Sunday, played all afternoon. We pulled up a chair and enjoyed our lunch while listening to them. Afterward I took a walk to the adjoining park & enjoyed watching the kids on the many 'jump thingy's'. They love them! There was also a volleyball tournament going on so we watched that for a bit. Too strenuous for us these days, you have to be a young pup to join in I think, lol....
A couple of hours later we headed home to give Onyx a walk before joining a group of friends at the VFW for a bit. Our circle of 'local' friends is growing each and every year and we love it. There are so many NICE people living here in Custer. One of the many perks of small town living I suppose. In any case, they all certainly make our summers here very enjoyable and we really appreciate their welcoming attitudes. Beautiful scenery, great weather and good friends. What more could we ask for??? Maybe a few of our family members visiting? Hint, hint, hint...
