Chillin' and Grillin"

Saturday brought more warm, beautiful weather here in Wauchula.  And when we heard about the Chillin' and Grillin' festival we couldn't resist.  We rode the bike into town and spent some time walking around where the vendors were.  Two of our friends and fellow full-timers (Rich and Dee) had a tent set up with all their silver jewelry.  They also had their new machine that allows them to imprint names, etc. on stainless and gold rings. They looked very nice and Rich and Dee did a good business at the festival.  Then it was off to get some lunch.  We decided on two plates of pulled pork, baked beans and coleslaw, and after waiting way too long in line (I think there was more molasses in the people working there than in the barbecue sauce) we sat down to a lot of food.  And man was it good.  Definitely worth the wait.  Of course we had to follow it up with some homemade strawberry ice-cream made the old fashion way with ice and rock salt.  You could taste the cream and fresh strawberries.  Very nice.
We met up with some friends after that and sat around talking and listening to a bluegrass band and a couple of young girls that competed in the Wauchula American Idol contest.  They were all pretty good.  All in all it was a great day.
