Hit 25,000

Had this post in the queue and I forgot to post it. oops. ;-) So I rolled over my 25,000th mile back on July 25th. Seriously the novelty of trying to match the milage and dates has worn off but this time it was merely a coincidence. Anyways, my MINI is still running strong. My other daily driver is not doing so well though so I tend to take the MINI out just a little more often than normal. Not that I am complaining, it certainly is a joy to zip to and from work. Some would say a little too much fun. :-D


4th of July Parade 2008

Plenty of fireworks to go around this year. CMMC once again was invited to join the 4th of July parade, this year in Oak Lawn. There was a great crowd with plenty of young ones darting for the candy what we were encouraged to toss at the crowds. In fact the kids were treated to a load of free hot wheels cars that Cathy and Gary tossed out. The kids went nuts for those! Below are my picts from the event. You can check out everyone else's picts here. I had a wonderful time again and look forward to raiding the clearance items to add to my decorations for next year. Good times!
