Car Show Fun

Every year my church has a car show combined with an outdoor service. Five years in a row everyone's prayed for nice weather and five years it's been beautiful. We have a blast and yesterday's car show was no exception. It's all free and we manage to feed anywhere from 500 to 1000 people all free with food donated and made by the church members. It's truly a miracle just like the loaves and fishes.
Sweetie Man and I have a tent of our own called Ed's Hot Zone. He makes HOT HOT HOT guacamole and salsa and I make hot jalepeno brownies. (yep, I said Hot as in SPICY....email me if you want the recipe) Anyway it's a blast and here are some pics to prove it.
First is the man himself...HOT ZONE ED!!! (what a cutie-pie!!)

Mr. and Mrs. Hot Zone Ed!!!


I made this sign which sits in front of our tent. Everyone says they hope we show up as they love the stuff we make.
This picture is really great. It's "LUCY" the scooter. The story behind this is that it was lime green and sitting in out back yard for sometime...make that years. Its was bought with good intentions....let's just leave it at that. We know how much our Pastor loves to use props for his sermons so we donated it to the church as it was useless to us after all these years. He in turn asked if anyone would like to fix it up. My good friend, Keri, and her husband, Frank, jumped at the chance and low and behold....Keri drove "LUCY" to the car show. She's a sleek black with butterflies on her...and better yet....she won a prize and was even part of the car show sermon our Pastor gave. Thanks, Frank and Keri,....she's a beauty!!

This is our church band getting ready for the service. They call themselves "misfits from The River"....but they really are AWESOME and a blast to listen too. They play very modern Christian music from today's top artists and sometimes even write their own.
I was about to take a pic of the cars but my zany lady friends insisted that they be included...gotta love 'em crazy church ladies. The purple shirts by the way say, "I Don't Go To Church" on the front....and the back says "....I AM the Church". We usually wear these on our Church Without Walls Weekends when we go out into the community and work.
Today I'm a bit tired from helping Sweetie Man with all the preparations...as I'm sure all the church members who helped prepare for this awesome day in the life of our church. I'm so proud to call them my church family.....the most loving, caring, God fearing people I could every know....Thanks for a great day everyone.....till next time, yinz crazy guys!

Looks like you had a great showing for the program. What a fun sign for your tent, and the scooter looks wonderful all painted like that. Loved your earlier pictures of your stitching retreat as well, what an awesome place to stay and have a getaway at.
