Millie and I drove the KWCH 60th anniversary car in the Ellsworth Cowtown parade Saturday. We had a great time, but I'm not sure Millie was that excited for the random gunshots that were fired in the air during the parade. I stacked a bunch of pillows up so she could look out the passenger side window during the parade, but once the shots were fired, she spent the rest of the route in my lap. It was a memorable experience and glad we could be there for the event. The organizer said there were 95 entries... probably one of the biggest in Cowtown Days history.
Our weather pattern will finally change and dry out. There are mixed feelings about it, even though the majority probably want the dry stretch so outdoor projects can resume. The pattern we are about to see is typical for summer, and if this were the middle of July, we'd likely be heading for 100 degree temperatures again. Considering it's the second half of August, we're not likely to break 100 degrees, but we will see a string of 90s that may last for 8 or 10 days in a row. So we won't have to worry about counting a bunch of 100 degree temperatures like we did the last two summers. And hard to believe the first day of fall is just about one month away. Summer seems to go faster each year.
