This weekend begins the start of the Marigold Festival 2010. This will be my first year to be living here while the festival is taking place. I plan to attend some of the activities on Sunday after church. Probably not on Saturday as I will have visitors here, unless of course they want to attend some of the events. Pekin is the Marigold Capital of the World.

A beautiful young lady by the name of Jordan Davis has been crowned Miss Marigold 2010. Her picture is below.
My street was oiled and graveled or whatever you call it this afternoon. Below is a picture of the action. I hope it is dry in the morning as I need to make a grocery store run.
I spoke to my friends Anne and Bill today. Bill was Jim’s best friend. He has been undergoing treatment for cancer and has not responded well. Please remember Bill in your thoughts and prayers. Anne’s sister is also in the final stages of cancer. My heart goes out to these two old friends of mine.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
