Corn Days Quilt




Every year, toward the end of August, our town has their 'Corn Days'.  Burgers and all-you-can-eat corn at the park, garage sales and craft stands and pony rides.  Greta especially likes the pony rides and the miniature train ride.

Mama found this delightful quilt for me at a rummage sale that weekend.  I love it.  It sits over the back of the orange chair in my living room.

Also every year they have a parade.  A good one.  We like to sit on Caleb's parents' lawn, conveniently located on the parade route.  This year my family joined us, and my Grammy Rose too.  Everybody shines up their restored cars and tractors, all the local queens and princesses of this and that dress up and wave to us from their float.  Local businesses throw us a year's supply of candy.  Motorcycle groups do figure-eights and the fire trucks blare their horn.  It's definitely something we look forward to.
