Picnic in the Park
We went to a picnic in the Placerville park to benefit the Placerville Volunteer Fire Dept. Here's their logo:
I was asking the guy in charge of donations for a vest for the K-9 dog in the poster, if he knew the dog's name. I thought the dog was probably a relative of Molly.
He said, "I'm not sure, but I sometimes see him at car accidents." I guess you had to be there-- he said it the way someone would say "I'm not sure, but I sometimes see him at parties."
There were puppies for sale for $500 each, German short haired pointers. We felt giddy and almost bought one. (not really)
Lunch was beef brisket, corn on the cob and baked beans, with a cupcake for dessert. They put lemon in the baked beans, which was tasty. We met Art Goodtimes, poet and county commissioner, and avoided the weird survivalist guy at the top of the hill.
