Got to Carson City at about 1030 for Rockabilly!  Didn't know what to expect but what a great time!  It wasn't too hot to start with, which was definitely nice!  Lot's of families, cars, cops, music, tattoos.. We walked up and the Motorcycle Officer Competition was going on.  They have an obstacle course they ride in competition with other agencies.  Of course there was NHP, Douglas County Sheriff, others and then Gilroy and West Sacramento too.  It was pretty cool to watch, some of them looked like they were going to dump the bike but didn't!  Don't know who won the competition but it was all pretty good.  

Obstacle course...

Competition between law enforcement agencies

We walked over and looked at a bunch of cars, everything from Rat Rods to just nice old cars. Then they had some drag races going on..so we walked back and forth from the competition to the races and all around.  

Clean Bronco!

My favorite truck!

Burn Out Competition

They also had a bunch of tattoo artists in the building showing off their work and giving tattoos.  Walked through there, but no tattoos for us.  So then we left and headed over to Minden. 

Carson Valley Inn for a late lunch.  Yum!  On the way out we saw this long haired guy with a long beard walking to the hotel.  He came out of the bus that was parked in the lot.  Oak Ridge Boys!  They had a concert that night and he was one of them!  Didn't get a picture of him, but did get the bus!  My favorite song they do..."Thank God for kids"....Home and the day was done.

These guys getting ready for pictures in front of the bus!

Yesterday we hung out at home, had the air conditioner running from the morning.  Around 100 degrees.  Ken enclosed the wall behind the tub in the kids room and I cleaned house.  

Today we were around, and Ken weedeated around the house and yard.  Looks so much better.  I washed the decking out front.  It sure needed it, looks so much better.  It's that tech deck stuff which we wouldn't use, but it was here when we bought the house.  So with the cover Ken built it works.  

Lizards all over...I hate those things! Now it seems we have two different kinds, yuk!  Made me jump and scream a few times.  But got it done.  

Talked to Adam today, he said Boys State was ok, but not one of the best. But glad he did it! 

Eric and Chris and family left Amarillo yesterday and are in Colorado Springs today.  They were headed to the Royal Gorge today. No pictures yet!  We went to the Royal Gorge back in 97 or 98 and Eric went with us. Doesn't seem that long ago, and now he's there with his own family.  
Nice family pic!

Outside "The Big Texan"

Tomorrow morning we head for Winnemucca for our twice yearly dr appointment.  We're just doing a one day turnaround, so we'll be home late afternoon.
