The crepe myrtle in my dad's backyard is loving this cooler weather.

Do you have a junk drawer? You know, one drawer in your house, usually in the kitchen, that stores anything and everything that doesn't have a specific place to live? This is ours! I remember when we moved into the house 20 years ago, this was one of the first drawers I designated with a purpose. Oh, I clean it out from time to time, but nothing ever gets put back in any since of order. Just remember...if you can't find it, check the junk drawer!

This is another band at the Walnut Valley Bluegrass Festival called "Mountain Heart". The band is from Tennessee. The festival has five "official" stages, and several "unofficial" stages located in the campgrounds that surround the fairgrounds. About a week or so before the festival starts, they have what is called the "Land Rush", which is where people stake out their campsites by putting up tents, setting up campers and RV's. We've never stayed out there, but I hear many people never make it to the actual fairgrounds due to all the "pickin' & grinnin' " going on in the campgrounds.

Yesterday, Tim & I went to the Walnut Valley Festival in Wellington, Kansas. If you like bluegrass, folk and rockabilly music, this is the place to go. The act on stage is "The Greencards". If you haven't heard of them, look them up on iTunes. Their music is great.

Mother Nature's on the rampage tonight! Storms rolled in around 5:30p, with heavy rain and hail, eventually causing the tornado sirens to sound. I haven't seen hail like this in a long time. Glad we paid the extra to upgrade the shingles on our new roof last year.

There is a small park area down the road at the lake where three horse shoe pits were set up. Now by the looks of them, they have been there for quite a while. However, it gave us the inspiration to purchase a set and make our own pit. Many games were played over the Labor Day weekend.

This weekend was our big Labor Day Bash at the lake. This year's theme was "Mardi Gras." We had jambalya, Gumbo, red beans & rice, as well as other cajun-type dishes. Forty-two friends & family showed up for the event. Although the wind blew like crazy, everyone seemed to have a great time.

This is part of the "Fairmont Creamery" building in Council Grove, KS. They are in the process of knocking down this building. I'm not sure what, if anything, will take it's place. In the mean time, it makes a good place to take pictures.
