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.
