[a city boy’s day in the country]
Lemonade-stand profits are definitely up, as folks at church yesterday gave me money even though they didn’t get any lemonade. They sure are nice people at that church, aren’t they?
I fed the catfish and blue gill at Miz Sue’s pond. The fish fought for the disgusting biscuit pieces that I threw to them (the biscuits were so bad we wouldn’t eat them, but the fish liked them very much – fish don’t know much about biscuits, that’s for sure!).
I picked wild flowers for Miz Sue. She liked them very much. The flowers were yellow, white and purple. Daddy put them in a pretty little vase for her. We had a good time at Miz Sue’s. She gave me a wooden whistle on a rope I could wear on my wrist.
Later we watched some World Cup. We missed the USA/Portugal game but we did see Algeria – they looked pretty good.
And then we went to Maggie’s house. We had steak to eat – it was chewy but the flavor was good. And grilled asparagus. And s’mores for desert - they were yummy.
Maggie and I played tag and we rolled down the hill and we ran – a lot. It was very fun.
Gran and I hunted lightening bugs but we didn’t catch any.
Then we both went to bed. We were very tired. It was a good time.
