Ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of the year to say… The 6th Annual Newton County Christmas for Kids Chili/Non-Chili Cookoff has come and gone. How on earth can that be? But it’s true. This is one of the largest fundraisers conducted to raise money for Newton County Christmas for Kids. If you’ll remember, last week, there was a blog post on what Newton County Christmas for Kids is and what they accomplish. If you missed that post, I highly suggest you go read it… Now! I’ll wait!
Now that you’re back… This year, the chili cookoff got moved back to the first weekend of November trying to avoid prior commitments… i.e. Halloween parties, The Underwater Pumpkin Carving, Maple Leaf, etc. October seems to be a busy month. The one problem with pushing back so late in the year can be the weather. Now here is where the blogger (that’s me) will tell you about the dream I had… finally.
I was afraid to mention what I thought the weather would be like prior to the event. But, I had a dream that I discussed the weather with Deb and it was going to be pouring down rain. I refused to mention those words prior to the event or even during the event. I left a lot of people wondering what my dream was about. Luckily, the weather held out and it was a beautiful evening. A little windy, but no rain until well after 10 pm when the event was over and we were all cleaned up.
