The Haystack

Elkhart County 4H Fairground
Goshen, IN

Where do the days go?  We woke up before 8 am and the next thing I knew, it was noon.  Miles Patten stopped to talk with me as I was putting the laundry in the truck.  Pretty soon, Bill came out and Margie also joined us.  I was telling Miles of places to see near Louisville.  We decided to all go for the haystack dinner at the nearby school later.  

There was no charge, just a donation box.  The students had two lines, on for to go boxes and one for eating at the tables.

Miles and Margie have never had a haystack before.  They were willing to try something different.  The first thing on the plate was crushed crackers, and the stack continued with meat, rice, lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, onion, Doritos crackers, black olives, green olives, jalapenos, sour cream, and topped with melted cheese.  It was very good and we liked the fact that we were supporting the local school.

I brought my camera, but thought I shouldn't take photos.  Then I saw one of the students taking photos and asked her if she would take a photo of all four of us.  
Coffee was also included and they came by often to fill Bill's cup.

As I was standing in line to get some ice cream, the fellow in front of me noticed my Escapees shirt.  He had given the water filter seminar at the Montana Rally.  A great selection of toppings for the ice cream was provided.  

It was nice to be able to spend some time with Miles and Margie.  It's just not the same when you are surrounded by another 150 people at a rally.

We haven't really decided which way we are going when we leave here.  Our previous plans had us going to West Virginia and then heading to Charleston, SC and Savannah.  Every time we get close to those two cities, the heat and humidity make us decide to change direction.  Now the flooding has us heading southwest.  
This young man was on the county road earlier with a young girl.  Notice the cart is made out of bicycle wheels.
