Antique Club Trip.
Yesterday was our second annual trip of the antique club. We had a full bus signed up, but then a rain storm came in, and only eight people showed up. I guess we could have postponed the trip, as it was very rainy, windy, and not the most pleasant weather, but we didn't!! The eight of us went on the trip to one of our favorite places and enjoyed it anyway. We had to have our trusty umbrellas with us at all times, as the rain did not let up at any point!! We went on our way, looked in the various shops, bought a few things, or at least I did!! Then we had a nice lunch and looked some more. I got a really neat book of poetry for my granddaughter who, is 17 today!! She writes poetry and likes the old poetry books. I also found a creamer with roses, Victorian I think, and also a beautiful rose plate. The plate will go to my daughter. All in all a good trip. I wish that it would have been sunny, so we could have walked without carrying an umbrella, but we needed the rain badly, as we've had a couple of drought years, so won't complain at all. :-) You make what you can of what you have, and if you can manage that, you can be happy!!! I got up early as usual to walk, but walking partner's knee was bothering her, so walked alone after the volunteering was done. I got some nice pictures around the lake and ducks, so was happy, and felt better for having walked. Antique Rose
