and that isn't a bird egg.  It is a  jumbo white egg.  I bought two bushel  of these potatoes.  Just about everyone of them were this size.   I mean, one potato is enough to feed four people.   They were grown in Shady Valley, TN

We made it to Virginia Beach and back without any incidents .  Bill made it better than I thought he would.  The weather was almost perfect.  It rained a little going up Thursday and a little sprinkle as we were coming home Sunday.  What more could you ask for?  The temperature was in the 70's.    The Shriner's kept food out at all times for three days.  We went out to eat seafood one time with a total of  $56.35.   That's the only money we spent for food.   The rest was on the house.  And it wasn't "junk" food.  I mean real food like chicken, shrimp, barbeque, ham, turkey, and just about anything you can mention.   Thank You Shriner's.  The parade was terrific.  It lasted three hours.  You have never seen a parade until you see one of their's.  Below are a few  pictures I made.  Click on any picture to make it bigger.

Fish and Their Pond......

I'm practicing uploading pictures because I upgraded my post editor.   Before I could post only five pictures in one post and I sometimes I needed to post more.   This is my fish pond that I cleaned out this morning.   Remember the Koi Lisa bought me for my birthday?   They are growing.
O.K.  Lets see if I have this right!

It will take a while to get used to this.   Bear with me!  Please!
