I have pretended that the silliest ideas in the world were smart instead of stupid.  And, I have pretended, that I believed the stupid people around me were geniuses  I did this to be polite and try to "fit in."

I have tried to discuss this early morning lawn mowing with this lawn mower enthusiast, but he has been a little difficult to have a conversation with.  People who know him will understand what I mean by that.

I am hosting a picnic at Murphy Park in New Harmony, Indiana on June 27th and 28th 2015 from Noon to 5:00 PM both days. I call it the New Harmony Ordinary People Picnic. I hope it becomes an annual event. It is a bring your own EVERYTHING (BYOE) type of picnic. So please bring your own food, beverages, grill, musical instruments and games. We have rented the shelter house at Murphy Park for those two days. The area is shaded by big trees, is clean, has ceiling fans and inside seating inside for about 100 people. Clean modern restrooms are within 50 feet of the shelter house, and there a HUGE wooden Playtopia for the kiddies.

A lot of people ask me, why on the green earth have I organized such a picnic for ordinary people?

My response is ……………………
