Silver Liningness Sunday

I think fall is actually going to happen. It's chilly! Our furnace was one degree away from turning on today.  Another good and busy week it was.  Seems like I'm becoming just a weekend blogger, but oh well, I'm always floating around whether anything gets posted here or not.

Our P.E.O. Oktoberfest happened yesterday.  We made some good money once again.  I managed to talk Chaco, Wolfgang, and Wolfgang's girlfriend into attending, so it was nice have them along.  Magnum also helped me work the door for a while.  We didn't win any of the raffles.  Guess we'd have had to buy a raffle ticket for that to happen...

Meego was out at another band competition, so missed the wild times.  We could've used him to further help bring down the average age of participants.

I snapped this pic during one of Wolfgang's cross-country meets back in his high school days.  I thought these biker leads and tails looked like they were enjoying their duties.  Yesterday, Wolfgang and a friend did just such volunteering for a local meet.  As I suspected, they had lots of fun and were kept quite busy.  Five races in all, in some good boonies.


We actually saw quite a bit of the college guys this weekend.  Oktoberfest and picking up the mountain bike  yesterday, then they swung by again today because Wolfgang wanted a haircut.  but first, "We're here to eat your food".  All tasks were successfully completed.  

So Wolfgang's been seeing his girlfriend for a while.  They were friends first after meeting at their summer jobs and then started dating (is that the term?)  within this past year.  She seems like a great girl, plus I trust Wolfgang's judgement.  I'm thinking she might need a blog name.  I don't want to jinx things for them, but "Wolfgang's girlfriend" is kinda dull sounding, and requires more keystrokes than I care for.  

In other news, someone actually wants to buy one of those vacuum cleaners.  The excitement never stops!

  1. I think your weekend postings still out number mine. Busy, busy busy.
    Fall has definitely arrived. We went from A/C to heat just like that. But the upcoming week looks to be a bit more like the fall I enjoy. 80 degrees and sun!
    Nice that you got to see your boys this weekend. I think Amp came home, but of course I was at work. I doubt he found any food to eat.
    Congrats on the vacuum cleaner! And to think you have a whole nother one to sell!

    1. The house was pretty full for a while, and now there's hardly any food, but I'm not complaining :)

  2. We've found that, as long as you have food and laundry service, the kids will return to the nest.

    Fall definitely arrived this past week. We dropped into the mid 60s some mornings. It's almost parka time (for some folk around here). Still, a beautiful weekend for all sorts of outdoor activities. Kudos on selling the vacuum cleaner. One down, one to go. Craigslist?

    1. We've done a gradual decrease of their food money with each passing college year. They're starting to visit more often, hmm...
      Yup, good old craigslist.

  5. Autumn is definitely over here... Grey skies, chilly mornings, leaves turning...
    Hm, our kids starting relationships - new and terrifying ground, but all good for us so far...
