Mickclose upMickey here writing for Mommy again. Me and Mommy and Daddy-man are on vacation in our house on wheels and Daddy-man won’t let Mommy use her computer or she will try and get work stuff done. Daddy-man says Mommy is supposed to relax and not to any work stuff this week, so I is filling in again!

Mommy said that when we get back she will be very busy getting ready for Herington Vintage Days on August 23! I heard there will be lots of antique tractors and farm equipment to look at; Daddy-man is even bringing his old 1955 Fordson Major tractor. There will also be lots of old games for the kids to play like 3 legged races and gunny sack races and Money in the Hay. Also vintage crafts and stories and vintage demonstrations like sheep shearers, blacksmiths, and weavers.

Mommy really excited about the street dance that night right on Broadway in front of the City building. She said maybe the Clearview Band will play her favorite song, Mustang Sally, and she will dance.

We are having fun traveling around rural Kansas and Nebraska, but we’ll be back soon and we’ll let Mommy get back on her computer then.

Mickclose upHello everyone, this is Mickey and I is writing Momma’s column this week because she is working hard at the fireworks stand. I don’t like that stupid fireworks stand because Momma spends too much time there that she should be spending with her puppy! Luckily my Aunt Lisa is visiting and plays ball with me.

I heard Momma say that she is very grateful to all the helpers she has at the stand this week. She said that set up day went nice and easy because the Mud Dogs helped. At first I had a big mad because I thought she was playing with other dogs, but she said that is a baseball team. Momma also said that the VFW guys have all be really helpful too and she appreciated all their help. Lots of other people have come and helped work at the stand, too many to list, but she says they know who they are and she appreciates them all especially Aunt Lisa and Grandpa (Momma’s Dad) who came all the way from Texas this week to help!

Momma also said that she is grateful to all the local people for supporting the fireworks stand and for understanding why the Chamber office is closed all week and to Kay’s Pharmacy for being a UPS drop-off spot while her office is closed. Momma will be back in her office on Monday morning.

Next week she will write her own column and I will go back to napping, ball playing, and protecting my yard from vicious bunny rabbits. (but not Miss Vikki’s big fluffy cat, who still scares me)
