Last run to Carowinds

This weekend Mike and I took our last trip to Carowinds in Charlotte, NC. We got to ride The Borg three times, Top Gun (Mike four and me three) times and a bunch of my other favorites. They had the last of the Paramount logo items for sale at a tent near the front. You paid $20 dollars and were given a bag. Fill it up without ripping or over flowing and the goods were yours. We picked up some shirts for us, rain ponchos, water bottles and I found some kid items to send in my next box donation to Online Angels. Well I am off to bed, seriously dragging after the weekend.

Wilson Pumpkin Decorating Contest

Here are some photos of the progress of my entry for the contest The Hobby Lobby is hosting in Wilson, NC. The entry is called "Agri-Culture." The square grid side is inspired by the works of Piet Mondrian and the circle side is inspired by the works of Wassily Kandinsky.
