Random summer photos
Tonight's bounty from my garden: two big cucs, five small sweet onions, 4 good sized plum tomatoes, and PILES of beautiful carrots!! The tomatoes are ripening up as we speak, and soon I'll be able to stew up plenty of plum tomatoes for homemade marinara. The cucs are just getting started, and the carrots are done. I planted more beets, and some more lettuce and spinach for fall.
And now some photos from the Nordic Fest. This is a giant ear of corn, because it WAS Iowa after all.
The Winneshiek County Democrats of Decorah Iowa, keeping Democracy strong and halting the spread of neo-facism in the Heartland.
Isn't this the most pathetic queen you've ever seen? Her utter disdain for the whole parade scene is just so evident. They need to give those crowns to middle-aged women like me. I'd have whooped it up and given those folks a SHOW!!!
These are local teens doing live modeling in a downtown clothing store. The handsome chap with the green man-purse is my nephew E. By the time I found him that afternoon, he was done modeling. I stated I was really sad because I wanted a photo, so he excitedly said "I'll go back!" which he promptly did and crawled back in the window for his auntie. Isn't he a good boy?
These are the famous Luren Singers from Decorah. It started as a Norwegian mens singing group, but they've lowered their standards and now they'll take Swedes, Germans, etc. Just as long as you're an old guy and can sing, you're in!
