Orville Redenbacher and A Golden September Morning

The golden hour of a September morning
outside my bedroom window
6:45 a.m..

Today is the Popcorn Festival.  Orville Redenbacher and his partner, Charlie Bowman,  perfected the perfect kernel around these parts back in the early 1970s.  I'm not sure how Orvillle won out in the name department!  I do think it has a better "ring" to it than Charlie Bowman.  Sorry Charlie!!  Anyway, I understand it is a fun-filled day that takes over the city.  As I ran some late afternoon errands yesterday, workers were bustling about setting up colorful tents around town.  We'll be staying home.  We don't even have any popcorn for a private celebration.  Maybe we'll just drive up to the lakefront.  It should be quiet and peaceful.  Everyone else will be at the festival.

Have a great weekend!!
