Big disappointment.

Hot dogs anyone? We were expecting a big crowd at the winery for the Blessing of the vines but People just didn't show up. We had some people but only about half as many as the summer festival. So now we have lots and lots of hot dogs. The weather was just about perfect so that wasn't the reason for the sparse crowd. I guess the economy has everyone scared. This mountain of hot dogs has me scared. Not really, I do have a plan. I will tell you more if I am able to pull it off.



The BBQ people next to us didn't do well either. They also brought bottled water but they were selling it for $2.00 a bottle and we just couldn't do that to people so we kept our price at $1.00. Once people found this out, they came to us for water. At the end of the day, we barely broke even so we didn't get rich like we planned.



This morning I got up early and went out and got a cup of coffee. I felt I earned it by working all day Saturday. After I got the coffee I went down to the local boat landing and watched the sunrise. The weather was again just about perfect and the sunrise was spectacular. After the sunrise, I came back home and fixed breakfast for everyone. Then we headed out to church. Today's service was titled "How to be rich". The first thing the preacher said though cracked most of us up. He said, I am not going to tell you how to get rich, just how to be rich. It was a great sermon and the point was that most of us don't realize just how well off we are. There will always be someone with more money than I have but I bet they don't have more hotdogs. :)



So let me leave you with the sunrise as seen from Wadmalaw Island. The first two pictures are of Church creek and the rest were taken at the boatlanding.Even though Saturday was a disappointment, this sunrise made up for it.























Have a great day,
Greg

Beautiful sunrise, Greg. Your Sunday made up for your Saturday. You ARE rich!

PS - Can you send me a hot dog...with mustard and a little relish?? ;)

People here are playing things close to the chest and our economy hasn't been hit quite as hard yet. But you did get to catch a gorgeous sunrise. I am often up before dawn but I fail to look out the window as it's getting light. I'm not sure there's much to see anyway with the houses in the way.

Wow - love your photos! We had an AMAZING visit to your fair city this week. You were right- the carriage tour was worth it. Loved, loved, loved Charleston. Thanks for your tips.

The photos are AMAZING! They look like professional photos. I especially loved the one with all the blues.

We are indeed rich. Although the thought of left over hotdogs makes me feel a little sickish. Too many as a kid I think!

Truly Beautiful pictures! So sorry that Sat. was a disappointment for you, but thankful that you broke even and that the Lord blessed you with the beautiful sunrise this morning. Thanks for sharing the pictures.

My husband and I have been praying for the financial provision to take a trip to the South. Your pictures have only encouraged my desire!

Living in California, we want to take our four children on one last road trip before our daughter starts college next year.

Still praying over here!

Your pictures are awesome!

As for the hot dogs...my 17 year old and his friends are always eating everything in sight. I'll take a case please.

God really did spare you, didn't He? You were going out to get more hot dogs, weren't you? :-)

The pictures are gorgeous. You really got the better end of the deal with that Sonday morning sunrise.

What stunning photos!

Sorry to hear that you got stuck with all those hotdogs. Can't you donate them to a food pantry? If not can't you freeze them?

ChrisJ said...

You will always be rich with photos like these.

Marla said...

Great photos of the sunrise! Sorry about your Saturday. I should have come for the hot dog, you would have had two less that you have now!

At least you have that beautiful scenery to off-set your disappointment. I am sorry you didn't have a good turn-out.
