This has been a very nice weekend. My dad was here. He brought a load of meat to Rescue Rita and my other friend Paula. They each bought half a steer. He was very nice to deliver it for them. Then he left from my house and went to his high school reunion. I think he had a good day. My DH and his mother and The Littles took off for the day to a local park with a pond and I was looking forward to a quiet day to myself, THEN Rescue Rita called and said Apples are falling off the tree and we need to go pick if we can. So off we went. We picked 5 boxes of apples, one for a neighbor that LOVES these apples and some for me and my friend Anita. After we were done picking apples - which by the way are the biggest I have ever seen in my life! Mr. Eytzen said the biggest he has ever measured was 13 inches around. They are Giant Buckleys and Giants they are! Oh back to the story, we went out to Birch Bay and roasted hot dogs and had a lovely dinner on the bay.
