It’s Father’s Day weekend so we went to the antique car and motorcycle show in Baldwin City.       

 

 

 

 

 

                                                                                            

Here Jim is talking to a guy about his B.S.A. motorcycle.     

                 Jim has one too.                                             

               It was a hot day. Heather and I tried to entertain ourselves so he had time to look. He ran into his friend Terry and his wife Sue. They have an Avanti.    Terry also works at the railroad.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Jim likes Indian motorcycles. Here is one we saw down there.

This is what was what was on Heather’s and my mind though.

 

 

 

 

 

Heather and I walk around town. It is home to Baker University. We ate at Wheat State Pizza which Heather loves. We also went to the quilt store.

                                                                                             

 

 

 

 

 

 

We left Baldwin City and headed for Lawrence where we stopped at several of my favorite places. I will  try to put those pictures on tomorrow.

 

Here it is Wednesday already.

Another warm, humid day here. It is around 84 and windy. Tomorrow they say there could  be some bad storms……………..

I found some more pictures I took of roving I dyed at Yarn School. I did a bit of spinning last night but had to put in the time studying for my Psychology of Women class so I didn’t get a lot done. The upper left piece is the weaving I was doing last weekend.

   This is some yarn I spun when I went to Yarn School in Harveyville, Kansas. I dyed the roving and then spun it up later.
