I began the day by going to the Ag Pavilion where Schweitzer's conducted an auction of "collectibles". There were many interesting things to look at including a beautiful '89 Buick Reatta. but I didn't buy anything. I believe a high percentage of the items were bought by Dealers. I stopped at a Garage Sale in our neighborhood, got acquainted with the owner, and bought an 18" dia. exercise ball for $1.00. This Collard Dove and its mate were "ground feeding" under our feeder when I got this picture through our kitchen window.
We went to Orscheln's this afternoon for bird feed and also bought some Salvia and Petunia plants. We planted them around our old black kettle and added the white Petunias to the Geraniums planted previously. In addition to many people in town for the last day of the City Wide Garage Sales, there were literally hundreds of Cyclist in the Spare Time Lounge area. This evening we watched the running of the Preakness at Pimlico in Baltimore. Elaine and I have happy memories of attending that race with all the Black-Eyed Susan's during one of our last years while living in the Washington area. It was a nice day.
