Started my day at 6:30am. I had to wash my car, it has been sitting in my dusty garage for 2 weeks. Finally finished about 8:30 and headed out to my first car show of the day about 9:15am. I was at the Queen of all Saints car show in Fraser (the city I spent my high school years and the church was a place that I used to catch the bus at, that is why I decided to go there).

After the car show I went to my former Mother in Laws house. I haven't seen her since her son, my ex-husband died a few years ago. When she opened the door her mouth about hit the floor when she realized it was me. We spent an hour standing in the driveway of her home talking about my kids and how things are going for her. Before my ex passed away he had spent 2 years restoring a car for her. Her last name is Studebaker and she was a huge part in organizing the Studebaker geneology. Party because she had been a medical library librarian for over 30 years and she had her Masters degree in something pertaining to being a librarian. Anyway, the car that he restored is a 1956 Studebaker and I got a peak at the car sitting in her garage.

I got home close to 5pm then headed back out to the local A & W Drive in restaurant about a block from my house. Me and hubby spent a few hours just enjoying the cool breeze and talking to the owner. What a wonderful way to spend a day.

Now just trying to decide where I am going to go tomorrow. My ex Mother in law will be at the Packard Proving grounds, which is about 45 min. north of me. Or go see Ken and his wife at the Wilson Barn Show which is 1/2 hr south of me. Why can't I fly ? Then I could do both.

My day started early again today. I decided to meet Ken and his wife at the Wilson Barn car show. The weather was not looking good but I texted Ken and he said they were going so I left my house about 6:50am. I got to the show and was lucky enough to park a couple cars away from Ken.

And then the rain began. I have to say a HUGE thank you to Ken for allowing me to camp out under his canopy with them. I haven't put my canopy in the trunk and didn't realize it until I was 1/2 way to the show. I did have an umbrella, but it rained for hours.

The sun finaly came out about 1pm and it turned into a beautiful, but hot, day. I made it home a little after 5. I do have a lot of pictures to go thru and then I will post them.

I didn't get anything done all weekend. Had an awful migrane from the moment I woke up yesterday. Had work this morning, then homework. (due tonight) I am off again on Thursday, guess I will just hope and pray the weather and my body plays along.
