First, was the Special Olympics for our county. A group of us from church volunteered and worked in the Hospitality Tent. We also got to enjoy the games!
This is our group at about 8:30 AM....it was about 38 degrees. I am not sure what happened to the warm weather we were having. But, I hear it'll be back next week. I hope, anyway.
The Parade of Athletes
We got to watch some of the races. This man is a friend who comes to our Open Door Meal we have once a month.
While walking, we saw a few street bands and performers. We heard some very interesting lyrics including this one...."You are so pretty, I will throw a flower at you"....Not sure that guy was ready for American Idol.
We found that it was to be a 45 minute to an hour wait to eat so we went out and walked a bit more.
And that's when we saw this guy.......
For supper, I ordered the Venerated Veggie Bowl.
Next time I go to eat there, because I do plan on going back, I plan to order the SHOO-Mercy Shrimp and Grits! Seriously, can you stand it?!!?
....maybe they had a little too much fun!
