Wow, I can not believe how fast the summer is passing us by in Sunshine. The Pot Luck dinner on the 13th was a success. We filled up the school house with many of our neighbors. We even met some of the new neighbors that will be moving in next month. It's always nice to see new faces. The Homebrew Hoedown at the Spread Eagle Lodge went well. All of the bands sounded great. It was quite a mixture of music. There was a wonderful jazz quartet, our band (geezer rock) and several blue grass groups. Oh, oh... and the homebrew was very tasty.
Sunshine events this week include the Team Sunshine meeting, Thursday evening (7:30) at our house and the Sunshine Garden club, which will be meeting at Stephanie's house, Saturday, at 4:30. A few of us are going to try to head up to Cheyenne for the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo. If you have a hankering to see the old west, it's a great place for the whole family. I was born and raised in Cheyenne, and I can tell you, it's quite an experience.
I was happy to see our mayor, Chris at the Homebrew Hoedown. I usually see Chris 3 to 4 times during the week but his gray beard and smiling face has been missing for several weeks. I knew he was home for all of his friends, (foxes, deer, birds, chipmunks and squirrels, not to mention a bear or two) have been hanging around his house. Every now and then I would notice his front door open but did not see his friendly grin. I pulled him aside and we chatted over a pint of honey mead. Chris told me that he had not been feeling at all well. He went to the doctor and has some tests done. It was determined he had a food allergy. I should have known better than to fall for this one. I asked him what he was allergic to....his reply......wedding cake. We had a good laugh over that one.
Remember, If you find yourself in a hole the first thing to do is stop diggin'.
