Grand Daughter and a jacket

Just a short post tonight, as I will get up tomorrow at 0600 for the Hambash here in Kansas City. It is in the Ararat Shrine over on the Missouri side East of downtown. They will take over the whole building with flea market tables and vendor booths.

I truck load of Des Moines hams are to leave in the wee hours of the morning, in order to be here by 8 AM. This should be a good time!

Today was uneventful, except that we had the youngest grand daughter for the day. She really like coming to grandma's house. Well, grandpa too but he makes her eat her peas, before she can have ice cream, so he isn't nearly as special.

I took off on the scooter and went to the dealer for a couple of hours mid day. They had ordered a mesh three season jacket for me in the giant economy size! I went to get it, and stopped by at several stores on the way. The jacket has some armour padded forearms and elbows, should those areas of your body inadvertantly come in contact with the road.

The entire jacket is made of a ripstop mesh fabric, with removable interior liners, that take it from winter to summer. I'm sure you will have to keep moving right along to wear it in the heat of a Kansas day. But we shall learn about this as well.

Better go get some sleep!
