Jim, who went to high school in Yakima, Washington, was a good sport about meeting and talking with a bunch of folks he didn't know. Everyone was warm and welcoming; it was good get together.
Today we went to the Wellington Cheese Festival. Click here to read a post I did last year about the festival, which celebrates Wellington's one-time position as the nation's largest cheese producer. This year we also got to watch the parade. Main event: 20 pieces of farm equipment courtesy of Wellington Implement Company, which is celebrating its 85th year in business.
