SATURDAY, AUGUST 13.
Definitely had a threat of rain all morning, but not one drop fell. We really need the rain and when it threatens like this, there is no way I'm taking the boat out. I like to float on the water, not have it on me.
We met some of the Usual Suspects (Glen, Barb, Kevin and Kelly) at Cabana's on the Chain on Pistakee Lake at 2:30 p.m., and enjoyed the dueling pianos. A local favorite named Michael Lescher was one of the pianists. Nothing like sitting outside on a beautiful (though hot) afternoon and being entertained while sipping ice cold Miller draft beer (for $7 a pitcher). Real big crowd.
The threatening rain finally left us.
Stopped at Sunnyside in Johnsburg and had a drink.
Then went to the Spring Grove Fireman's Steak Fry at Horse Fair Park. It cost $20 for a ribeye steak, baked potato, corn on the cob, roll, cole slaw and cherry pie. And, for a good cause. Entertainment was provided by jukebox deejays. I really dislike the new group of deejays who just play music off their laptop computers and say nothing except make a rare announcement. Definitely not my idea of deejaying.
Went back to Sunnyside and then came home.
