A couple weeks ago my good friend Sheila's husband was selected as First Citizen of their town. Wow!! What an honor, and what an all together nice guy he is and very deserving as well! There is a dinner to acknowledge him and celebrate his award, well of course I want to go and I see in the paper last week that Wednesday is the last day to get the tickets so I have Dave stop on his way home and get our tickets. So far so good, and I didn't mention to Sheila that we would be coming so then I decide not to say anything and let them be surprised to see us. And if you have been reading for long on this blog you know we don't go out very often, for a variety of reasons. But this was a really great honor and I wanted to be there, so it was worth the hassle.
Okay it started at 6pm, Dave comes home changes clothers and I tell him I think we need to be a little less casual, so he changes again... I change and we are off, naturally it is a couple minutes after 6pm when we pull in to the big parking lot at the Catholic Church where the dinner is to be held. There are close to a million cars in the parking lot, it is raining cats and dogs, but what the heck, it is worth getting soaked to do what you want to do... We go to the room where I know the dinner will be held, huh... there is only one young woman in the room and she is feeding her baby. I asked her, where is the First Citizen Dinner being held? She turns to me and says, it was Monday.... Surprise!!! Oh by the way, did you know it was Lent? Don't you just hate surprises??
Hopefully the next one won't take so long. I am happy with the results and now I am on the hunt for more sacks. I love that they are incredibly strong and durable, webbed plastic.... what could be more durable?? Originally I was trying to make a bag that could be used as a reusable grocery bag, and that is why I wanted it to be strong. Now that it is finished, I can think of a lot of uses. Who could have enough bags to carry their treasures?
I'm collecting things for Expo, it is next week. I found several of these, they would be great for storing all kinds of things.
On second thought maybe I should think about keeping them, as an attempt to be organized???
