As I sit here and type this, the thunder is very loud. Lots of lightning too. I didn't expect this. At first I thought the noise was the neighbor taking the garbarge can to the road, but wondered why it was so loud.
Earlier it was hot. After church today, Pat invited me to go with her to Alden Lane Nursery in Livermore.
See the large tree behind Pat. The next picture is a close-up of it.
It was really a fun afternoon.
If this nursery was closer to home, I would go there often!!

We played catch-up on what was going on in our worlds. They are keeping very busy.
It must be hard to give away something when she puts so much into it.
Kathryn showed me material for her next project; a quilt for herself.
My daughter Sandy is always knitting. I think it must be difficult for her to give away some of the beautiful things she knits. Must be nice to have talent.

We parked about 2 blocks from where the parade was to begin; an easy walk. We found Don and his Model A on Winton Way. A friend of his was trying to get the car started!! Don had driven to Ballico and all over and it was working fine until now.
Couldn't get it started, so we left the car, walked a block to watch the parade. Several minutes later and before the parade got started, Don decided to walk back to the car and try to start it again.
He walked back to get us and and said he got the car started. We got back in the rumble seat and moved slowly to get in line. Don had a good position this year in the parade. Number 3 in line. The Model A's were all riding together, and we slowly inched along. Then everyone stopped. Don's Model A stopped too. And wouldn't start again. That was the end of our riding in the parade.
We watched the parade in the shade of the big trees on the corner of Elm and Winton Way. It was still a fun day.
