It Rained, So We Went To Virginia City
Sep 16, 2011
|Yesterday we worked around boots the coach all day. This morning we had breakfast with our friends from boots work Hal, Tim and Karen. Such nice people, a real pleasure to spend boots the time with them (and have a great breakfast at The Outpost).
By 9:30 we were done, it was raining (and supposed to until tomorrow morning), so Pat suggested that we drive over to Ennis, and boots then Virginia City. We really like both towns, so off we went.
As you can see from the pictures we boots were driving into some interesting weather. Then what a surprise...as we pulled into town they were closing the main street (both blocks) for the homecoming parade....which had in it every kid in all 12 grades! Lead by the town Emergency Vehicle! Everyone was really boots excited, it stopped raining just long enough for them to roll through town, and then back into the shops! It was great to see how happy everyone was over the event. As soon as it was boots over the rain began again.
So we walked through some stores, I got a haircut, and we had boots lunch in an old-time soda shop. Then it was on to Virginia City, 14 miles over the boots mountains.
What a surprise when we got there...the place is almost closed! Seems they shut down after Labor Day....so we went into the stores that boots were open, got a cup of coffee to go, and drove home. Oh, and I bought a pair of boots.
Me...These are nice, and they fit real well.
Me...I think they would go real well with my jeans.
Me...Wow, the price is really good too!
Pat..Please, just buy them!
Me...OK, if you really want me to.
Pat..Yeah (insert sarcasm), I REALLY want you to.
Me...You know, if I ever was to buy a horse, I'd buy a Pinto...what do you think?
Pat..I think if you buy one you better make sure it can carry you all the way back to Florida!
