|Johnny is #925 in the Bike Race|
Johnny has #925 on his back...
He finished the race in about 2 3/4 hours. He did better than last year. I stayed in the cabin and watched a movie and read some magazines. Then when he came back he took a hot bath and we ate lunch. Then we had to get down to Heber for my good friend Heidi's wedding reception. We passed through the thriving metropolis of Randolph, Utah. Look at this "Smallest Store in Utah" pic I took. So funny!
|It is crazy! This tiny store looks like a Tuff Shed!|
|Where the deer and the antelope play?|
|I'm thinking the antelope didn't like John's choice of Leonard Skinnerd on the CD player? They skeedaddled!|
|The tiny Randolph, Utah courthouse (Kangaroo court)|
Jeez you wouldn't believe it unless you'd been there. It was like that show Night Court! The judge had cowboy boots and a flannel shirt on! I said kinda loudly "THAT'S the judge?" and John elbowed me in the ribs. hehe But they had bailiffs, a bouncer cop, lawyers for the county, clerk of the court, the whole 9 yards. Then they read every little offense you made in front of like 50 kids sitting in this miniscule courtroom that had all been busted for drinking (underage) on the beach It was crazy! Then dramatically, the judge says that all these offenses (including no insurance on the boat, who knew you needed insurance? NOT us obviously) they all added up to $400 bucks fine. WTH!
|We stopped here the day of the ticket and inquired about getting a giant teepee for our grandkids at this fun little shop!|
|This giftshop in Randolph seriously is a 12 x 12 building with a gazillion gifts of every type inside!|
|We saw lots of deer as we drove down Highway 80|
That started another loud guffaw of laughter in the courtroom. By then all the clerks and cops were laughing too It was kind of a slap in the face to the "system". I was wondering if this was daily fare for the court people. But the judge started chuckling too after John just smiled and admitted it all. Then the judge gave John some fierce advice about oars and whistles and he knocked the charge down to a $100 fine. It was a total embarrasment to us as we both slinked out of that courtroom. The strong arm of the law and all that.
|Windmills for sale along the road...|
Anyway we were on our way through all these small towns and it started really raining hard with lightening and thunder. We were almost to Evanston and I saw this cute little windmill advertising in a little old farmer's yard. There were big windmills and cute tiny ones. I'd like to get one of those for my cabin...very cute!
We stopped for a snack at McDonalds and returned our Redbox movie too. Did you know you could return Red box movies even interstate? We rented it in Utah and returned it in Wyoming!
|Everything is so green too! Spring has finally sprung!|
|I noticed all the rivers were right up to the edge! EEK, floodin' may be a'comin|
|Echo Reservoir...a fun place to go boating in the summer!|
We finally got to Park City and turned off to go through to the small valley of Heber, Utah.
|Beautiful green Heber...It's one of my most favorite towns!|
|Snapped this pic out the car window...so green and pretty!|
I wrapped up a pretty wrought iron and glass beverage dispenser and we went to the reception. It was in this million dollar vacation home in Heber. It had the most beautiful view which I forgot to take a picture of. We met up with lots of friends and had a great time. The bride and groom looked so happy together.
|They had little crabcake appetizers with corn salsa in little clam shells...mmmm yummy!|
Eric Olson and Layne Halverson kept us in stitches telling stories (both are business owners) of finding skunks, racoons, and bats in other people's homes and how they went about getting rid of them, or working with them. Too funny!
|Yummy salads and salmon and grilled meats...so delish!|
|We really laughed at the racoon and gopher stories...the guys were so funny!|
|Heidi and Alex...Congrats you guys!|
