Hydroplane Boat Race Pictures

These first pictures are from inside the tent that was put up. We have a private area that my husband's company pays for and gives out the tickets to it.

Here's hubby standing watching the boats or something anyway. The crane in background is where they put the boats in the water and work on the boats.
This fellow bought one of my pillows last year and added a very large bra to tie it on his lawn chair!
This is looking up the river towards the start-finish line.
Here's one of the boats driving by after the race was over.

Mike and Andy went Sturgeon fishing yesterday with a friend. This is Andy's only fish that he caught. They estimate it to be 6.5 to 7 feet long! It took all 3 of them taking turns reeling it in to get it to the boat. They released all of them.Here's Andy struggling with the big fish.
Mike caught 5 smaller ones.
Here it is from behind the boat.

Long Week, Nice Weekend

Last week was kind of long. My brother had a seizure on Monday night and got to spend 3 days in the hospital. They did another MRI and can see that 'Thelma' appears to be growing. Since he was in the hospital, he missed 2 appointments at the cancer center. He had one this morning and the other will be on Wednesday. We're all hoping that they can start his radiation and chemo treatments this week.

Mike and the boys went to Wenatchee to see his family. They had a nice time, went to a movie and had a big BBQ. I stayed home with the dogs, crocheted, watched videos and ate Chinese food. It was a very quiet weekend.

So what did you all do for your weekend?

The Past Week

Well, my brother and SIL are back home now. They have been told that he can have radiation and chemotherapy for the tumor and his treatments can be done here locally. They didn't waste any time moving home when they got the news.
They should find out this week how soon he can start.

Last Thursday, my nephew had his gall bladder removed in the morning and was home mid-afternoon! I can't believe he didn't have to stay overnight for it. He had some pain over the weekend, but that was from moving around too much. Typical man, doing too much! He learned a lesson, let's hope it sticks this time. haha

We spent Saturday night and a different nephew's house for a BBQ and party. It was fun. We enjoyed ourselves and had lots of food. My sister's boys can both BBQ, smoke and do whatever with meat like no one else I know! They love to cook meat and it always tastes so yummy!

I've been trying to get some stock ready for the boat races. They are the last weekend of the month. I'm not sure if Mike is going this year or not. I might have to go too to sell everything. I haven't been there in a couple of years, so we'll see. They did really well last year on my stuff. I even had some special orders to work on until late Saturday night. I got them all done though and they were bought.

Over at Crochetmania, we're getting ready for a crochet or knitting olympics. What we do is to set a personal goal for ourselves and we can't start it until the torch is lit and have to finish when the torch is put out. Then we report how much we accomplished for out medal. It's pretty much on the honor system. I'm trying to decide what project or projects what I want to work on for it. It would be a good time to finish up a couple of my big WIPS to get done.
I'll post more on this when it gets closer to the Olympics starting.

Well, I don't know what the week is going to bring. We may be taking a trip to Wenatchee this weekend. We haven't decided yet on that.
