LESS YOU THINK I AM NO LONG BLOGGING
Some of you might be wondering why I haven't posted quite as much lately! I try not to talk about how busy I am for fear you make think I am crazy! This weekend is a good example!
On Saturday the Historic District Merchants put on the "Let The Good Times Sock Hop" in Bancroft Park and 800-1000 people attended. I am the director for this group here in our Historic 3 block District. For this I baked 2 lemon meringue pies, a chocolate cake (my wonderful one) and my peppermint brownies. I was in charge of making the trophies and organizing the prizes for the event. I made root beer floats at the event and took photos. You can view the event at:

Our board spent weeks working with our administrator/event planner working together getting ready for this event. After Saturday was over - the Good Times Car Show (collectible cars) came Sunday and they closed the streets here for that event with hundreds of cars on display. Today, the USA Pro Cycling came through with the streets closed again. The bikers rode at about 60 miles per hour spaced a few minutes apart - there were helicopters, hundreds of vehicles before and after them with mounted cameras - I have never seen a bike go so fast in my life! It was unbelieveable. Did I mention that I still have my bike from the 1970's - a three speed in perfect condition. It is perfect because I never ride it!
Anyway, I am hoping now my life will slow down! I feel like I have been going 60 miles per hour myself! Whew......
