I realize it has been almost 2 weeks since the Michigan Apostafest, but I havent had computer access. I want to say a big "Thank You" to Jourles for organizing this event. Darin and I left Dayton Ohio on Saturday morning July 22, we thought we were getting a good start and was making good time, until we started hitting traffic jams and road construction. What should have only been a 3 1/2 trip turned into 5 hours. We finally made it to the picnic around 3 PM. We took Luke with us, (Darin's German Shepherd) and he had a good time playing with the kids and chasing frisbees, until the park police made us put him on a leash, Darin was kinda upset, but I figure most parks have leash laws.
The picnic turnout was 22-23 people I believe, and I got to meet many new people. The food was plentiful, and the sausages were awesome. There was more food there than our family reunion. We brought a watermelon and drinks since we were driving far and not sure if hot food would spoil.
After dinner entertainment was provided by me, as I whipped out about 1/2 dozen Watchtower and Awake magazines that I retrieved from a truck stop in Kentucky. We promptly burned them on the BBQ grill and had a few laughs with it. I had also written some funny captions on them too, and Darth Frosty was getting a big kick out of them. That was one of the best picnics I have been to, so a big hats off to Jourles, One more thing, that park was one of the largest city parks I have ever seen in my life, there are state parks here in Tennessee that arent nearly that big.
So here's to the next apostafest,
