Marian Days, 2010

Our small town hosted about 60,000 people this last weekend, and most of them stayed in tents a few blocks from us. We did not go down this year, although during the three day event the temps did go down to mere 92. Still too hot for us to want to be elbow to elbow with others. The Vietnamese are quiet and respectful; their event celebrates their religious thanksgiving to Jesus and His Mother Mary for saving them and leading them to safety here.

Very interesting. We have a huge Vietnamese population here too. Sunflowers make me happy.
