Once again my friend Dina was involved with an Alzheimer's fundraiser out at Book's Family Farm that I purchased tickets to. Since I didn't have any luck getting any of my friends to be my date, I ended up going by myself. Thankfully, I had a bunch of couples I was meeting there. Like last year, I caught a horse ride from the parking lot to the back of the farm where the event was being held.
This year had such better weather than last. It was still hot in the direct sun, but there was a fabulous breeze and more shade available. I'm glad I went, I ran into a bunch of people I know like my 6th grade teacher Mr. Watson who recognized that he knew me (we ran into him a few years ago at the Japanese Gardens in Portland), my friend Danya from high school, an old council member, and ladies I'd met from Soroptimist. The event was only from 2-5 pm so it was the perfect amount of time for a few bites, a couple of drinks, and an afternoon of good music.
