Osage Bend Picnic

It was another beautiful day in the country. Jeremy and Lori's church had their annual picnic. The grounds were crowded with people visiting and quite a few politicians mixed in.

The meal, served family style, consisted of golden fried chicken, pot roast, real mashed potatoes, green beans, the best slaw, cucumber salad, fresh sliced tomatoes, and your choice of desserts.

Elizabeth loved her mashed potatoes.

Here is the first quilt up for auction. It brought $500.00.
The second one went for $450.
The third also went for $450.

After that I forgot the numbers.

This one was was bought by our friends, Pam and Loren. It has the cutest ruffle all the way around it.

Cardinal birds were all over this one.

Someone's 4-H ham was purchased at the fair this week. The banker who bought it donated it to the church auction. It brought $90, that buyer then donated it back again. The next person bought it for $70 and kept it to eat. He's going to have some fine country cured ham for breakfast tomorrow!

One of the best things at the picnic??? The pie I got with my meal was raisin!!! Yummy in my tummy! My mother-in-law used to make the best raisin pie for me and my late father-in-law. We were about the only two in the family that ate it. How I miss him and that raisin pie!

Beautiful quilts and delicious food! I miss the old 4-H days. John would cure two hams - one to sell & one for us to EAT. They were delish! Raisin pie sounds good too. Gee thx, Patti, now I'm starved! :-p -T

We went to Wardsville picnic a few weeks ago. Didn't make it to Osage Bend. Those quilts are gorgeous! Jim loves raisin and goosberry pie... the only time he gets them is when somebody else makes them (I'm not a fan!) My grandma used to make prune pie - now that is a treat!

Isn't this heat awful?
