Started the day early because Gary needed to drop his car off for a new set of tires. Fed critters and ran up to Harvard to the dealer. Except he'll have to go back Monday. After scheduling the service, he found a coupon for a $100 rebate on a set of tires on the Ford web site. They said they would honor the coupon, but it called for a brand of tires they didn't have in stock, so they had to order them in for Monday morning. Oops. Well, that much saving is worth the extra trip.
Then we went to the county fair, because I wanted to see and photograph the fiber craft exhibits now that they would be all assembled, and we like looking at the various livestock. My hunch seems to have been correct. The number of knitting and weaving entries was down this year due to their failure to print a premium book or prospectus, or to mail notices of any kind. You can't expect all those older ladies who do this stuff to be hanging on a web site looking for news. You just can't. Someone doesn't get it.
Then we went looking for a couple of geocaches. I walked in a tight circle around the first one a couple of times before Gary spotted it. It was his first time bagging one of these critters, but he insisted on photographic me holding the prize. It's strictly a catch and release sport, so after signing the log book and snapping photos, we put the little guy back right where we had found him.
After that we tried for a second cache, but were not successful. I'm sure we would have found it eventually, and we were probably just about tripping over it, but the mosquitoes in the second location were horrendous and we hadn't brought any repellent. I notice on geocaching.com that the hunter who located it yesterday says he actually had to wear a mosquito netting hood to go in there for it. Yuck. We'll go back later in the month when things have dried out. That particular park has two other caches very close to the one we were seeking, so it's worth the trip.
Came home, took care of horses and sheep, and made Caesar salad with chicken grilled over applewood. Also homemade biscuits. Tasty and not too terribly unhealthy either.
