Tea stands for Cancer Fundraiser

For TEA this week I have a multitude of pictures to share.  We traveled to Ramona, CA for a cancer fundraiser that was put on for one of my son's employees.  It was discovered, early this summer, that he the had three cancer tumors, stage 4 in his head.  They could remove all but one, and he is right at the end of all the treatments and is doing quite well, for the circumstances.  So, with a multitude of bills, even though he has insurance, my son, friends and family put on this fundraiser. Of all the pictures I took and I didn't get one of Brian and his family, of course just trying to get them together FOR a picture was an other story.  His daughter and son were too busy having fun with all the rest of the kids.  I don't know how much was raised, but there were over 200 people at $20.00 a plate or $40. for a family.  Brian has kept a positive attitude and a smile on his face, and we are blessed to call him and his family our friends.
So, now get your cups filled, 'cause we are onto the pictures.............. you may have to click on them to see the labels.

Ernie has quite the setup for something like this, and does a lot of special parties

The bands were really good, and played a large selection of music

I was really taken in by how he had everything set up, and what he had collected.

Some of the pictures were taken from the roof of the saloon
It was a great weekend, but we were pooped when we got home at 11:30 PM Sunday night.  Monday there was the unloading of the Playhouse, that includes a 300 lb BBQ we took with us.  Of course what is brought back into the house had to be put away, and the laundry done.  Since we were a dry camp, that means all the holding tanks of the trailer have to be emptied and rinsed and emptied again.  Then DH got called to work and I finished up everything that I could.  When he finally got back home we sat down to relax, and I promptly fell asleep.....and that is how we spent our 41st anniversary......and why I'm so late in getting this posted for Tea with Elizabeth this week. 
Since I fell asleep so early last night all the pictures were still on my camera this morning....LOL

Thanks for stopping by weather it was for tea, or just because, let me know you were here.

Inky Hugs

Ernie has this posted in the saloon....thought it was fitting....LOL

  7. Before I forget, happy, happy belated anniversary. Sounds like you and I were on the same wavelength sleepwise.

    I'm late getting here, because my body needed a rest too today. I was up at 3 am after only two hours sleep, cleaned my kitchen, mopped the kitchen floor, visited a few T friends, went to the bank, then went shopping. Came home about 2 pm, put things away, and promptly fell asleep.

    What a remarkable place. I really enjoyed the array of photos and how you put them together. I love to live vicariously, so this was a really enjoyable treat to see all the people who showed up for the fundraiser. Worthy cause, too, I might add.

    Thanks for sharing your weekend with us for T this week. Once again, happy, happy 41st.
