Day 26 - Carthage, MO

Dateline:  July 12, 2014; Carthage, MO

When we are on one of our trips, our daughter, Ruth, always has her birthday in some strange locale.  This year, she had her celebration fall during our Rally.  There were no presents to open - she's asked for a new reading chair for her bedroom at home (that's my girl!).  Still, she got to go out to lunch at Lucky J's.  The whole FMC Rally went and took the place over.  Turns out this is Jim W.'s PLACE!  We had great lunches and got to watch some of the actual show events which was fun.

Warm ups before the event started. 


Greg and I saw this abandoned grain elevator on the drive home.  Isn't it gorgeous? 

Happy birthday, Ruth! 
(Please ignore the Dr Pepper can, it was next to the cake, not on it!)

At the end of the day, we had a big pot luck dinner with hot dogs roasting on the fire and leftover pork from the night before.  It was a delicious meal, as always, with tons of good food.  Of course, sharing it with good people makes all the difference!
