Our church had a BIG outdoor picnic/carnival today. Dialup is extra slow today, and I'm uploading pics. Only one so far.

I had to hand off my camera to others so I could man (or woman) the deejay table. The camera was kind of passed around, and it was fun to see what people came up with.

Here's the first shot. Picnic tent on the left, carnival stuff center rear, yours truly on the right there.

More pictures as they come available.

While we ate, a pie and cake judging was held. I'm told the competition was formidable.

An army of church volunteers kept us fed.

BTW, all food, soda and water was free. Sadly, Kitty, no Dr. Pepper was made available to the thirsty masses.

Face painting.

Still Dee-Jaying.

After the pie and cake winners were announced, they auctioned off the "gently used" entries. (Hey, they had to taste 'em to judge 'em.) Proceeds went to the Christian school where I teach.

I believe the word you are looking for is "attend". ;)

Thanks for the great pictures. Looks like a fun time was had by all, including the deejay!

Seeing all the summer clothes is making me look forward to summer over here.

Shalom,
Ian

Every church needs ladies like these. They pray for us. They're our heroes.

Fellowshippin'. There's Whistlenut flanked by his mom and dad. To the left of his dad is the other guitarist in our band. Very talented.

The afternoon was almost over and I FINALLY got my camera back. Nobody had taken any pictures of the car show ?????, so I headed over there.
Image


I tried a suggestion from Adrian....forget what people think, they already think I'm kind of weird anyway. I laid down, pointed the camera and got this angle.

Hey, you Rocky Mountain people know those flatlanders who roar into town towing a jeep, looking around for road signs that say, "Drive at your own risk," and even, "Driving NOT Recommended"? Then they head up that road in their jeeps? Well, a few of those jeeps turned up at our car show.
Image

These tractors are popular around here.
Image

My song was about done, so I had to go back and change the CD, but on the way back I ran into this lady who looked how I felt--exhausted.
Image

This lady (waving at her grandbaby) is MY hero. She prays for me.
Image


Well, that's about it. It was a fun day, deejaying, snapping pictures, and looking at everyone else's pictures. My skin now matches that shirt I was wearing.

People of my complexion have a saying: A sunburn looks better than pasty white. :? True, but a sunburn wears you out. Going to bed.

Looks like everyone had a great time. :D

Nice to see whistlenut & family. :)

The deejay's table could have used a bit of shade. Did you get a sunburn?
