The Nomads Annual Meeting came to a close on Friday morning and the members are drifting away to meet up again at some future service project or the next annual meeting. We have made a lot of new friends and look forward to working with them sometime/someplace.
We went back to the county park where we spent some time last week, but we didn’t stay. The “weekenders” had taken over, and we didn’t have reservations. We might have been able to grab a last spot, but it was crowded, noisy, and already smoky. We came back to the fairground where a very few NOMADS haven’t yet left, and returned to our original spot. It is quiet and flat here, and our neighbors are great.
The drive to the county park was very colorful! The leaves in some areas are almost at 100% color. With all the hills and windy roads around here, it is a very pretty time of the year for a drive.
By the way, the fairgrounds are in
which is where the sandwich of the same
name was originally offered to the public.
According to local legend a couple of food vendors at the county fair
had been serving sliced, grilled sausage to their customers until they ran out
of sausage and began to substitute spiced ground beef in its place. That was in 1885. Similarly, the nearby city of Hamburg,
is supposedly the birthplace of spicy chicken wings. Buffalo
The forecast is for rain tomorrow. We’ll probably go to church in
then have a quiet day as we smell the delicious sticky chicken cooking in the
crockpot. It’s nice to have a stay at
home day – just so the rain doesn’t stay around too long! Hamburg
