What I Did Over the 4th of July Weekend

Diane and I went to agility trials at the Dixon Fairgrounds on the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th of July. Farli turned 12 on the 2nd, and she also had two clean runs in her agility classes. She got a first place and third place ribbon that day. Farli did pretty OK in runs on the other days, qualifying in about half of the runs. I did my usual thing of taking pictures at the event. I can do a lot of things if I have a camera with me that otherwise would not be engaging. Things got started early in the morning so that the agility runs would be over by mid-afternoon, when the Dixon Fairgrounds turn into a fair approximation of a skillet in the summertime.

Saturday evening we spent at a “Bay Racers” flyball club dinner and meeting. I was bushed, so I took a nap during the meeting part.

In the afternoon of the 4th, we went to a party at Genie Scott’s house. We took along our duck, Fala, who mooched food off of people and had a fine time in the fountain in the backyard there.

In the evenings of the 3rd and 4th, I was able to take some pictures of the fireworks put on by the local Calvary Temple church. They used the Concord High School grounds, conveniently located on the other side of our backyard.
