It was just too damp to go sit and watch the parade Saturday. Late yesterday we decided to make a run through the park, doesn't take much to make us happy, huh? The park was a mess, not with litter. I'm not sure if the visitors were that neat or if the city had already cleaned up. The pretty green grass had ugly wet ruts everywhere. The people had to park somewhere, so it wasn't their fault. I'm anxious to see what if anything the city will do to make it look better. Probably hasn't rained that much before and during Cowboy Homecoming since it started. It was always in August and was so hot and dry the attendance was probably much better this month with the cooler weather. The small trailers and barbeque pits, and people were all gone. The carnival booths and rides were still loading up, while the ducks were swimming peacefully down the middle of the river.
