Friday we went to Lowe's in Fernley and we were actually back in time to have lunch at home. Spent about $250.00 to get the stuff we needed for ther sewer system and a new mailbox. Our mailgirl (usually I have other names for her)..has a bad habit of leaving packages tied to the mailbox or anywhere else she can put them.too much trouble for her to drive down the driveway I guess..we have gone to the post office and filled out a form to not deliver any packages to the house..but some still end up tied to the mailbox..geezzz..so Ken installed a bigger one..so we'll see..
Nevada Day is a big celebration in the state. So we decided what the heck let's head for Carson City where there was a big parade and all kinds of other things going on. Our neighbors, Joe, Stacey, Stacey's mom and little Rylee were going to be going too as there was a beard contest and since Joe is a Clamper the Clampers were in the parade too. We all ended up leaving at about the same time, and amazingly when we got there we took our chairs downtown and ended up sitting right next to them!
Had a great time at the parade! I have to say we were very impressed with the salutes to veterans, Jr ROTC and active MIlitary. There were lots of Jr Highs and High School marching bands which i love to watch...very impressive. Everyone enjoyed! They probably had close to 200 different groups go through there. Of course plenty of beer and drinks flowing!
After the parade we took our stuff back to the car and headed over to the beard judging contest! Gotta say that was something to see..just alot of fun and a perfect day for it! We ended up leaving after that..well, after a drink at Cactus Jacks just to sit for a bit. We will go again next year..as I'm sure the party was rocking and rollin when we left..but think we'll get a room that way no one has to drive home.
