It amazes me how fast this summer has gone. I have been busy all the time, sometimes one needs to just sit and watch the prairie grow. I started out last night without a camera but felt out of place not having one with the sun setting and clouds moving in. I regained my composure and knew my journey would be short, I was fixing a late meal for friends when they got off from their jobs, and left without that camera.
After riding across the state on bicycles, I have noticed a few who retained their ride attitude. I have to admit, I have been craving pie and biscuits and gravy made by the various churches. I have always been more partial toward the Methodists with the biscuits and gravy. It is always a sure win through the years. I like to set a standard good price for a slice of pie, and tend to eat a piece at any stand that might have cheap slices. My best daily was nine pieces, but it was a day with a 100 mile trip. One tends to burn lots of calories, but looking into the mirror , not enough. Riding in large groups allows you to draft with many others, but you still need the fuel. this ride is a miniature town with over 15,000 riders. When they pull in for stop they have many times more than doubled the population.
A Corn Festival is this next weekend in my little town. We meet and shuck corn on Friday, then it is all the sweet corn one can eat on Saturday. Many celebrate class reunions to coincide with this event so the little town will become big. It is nice how everyone volunteers to make this festival a real hit. People come from all over to share in this event.
