Toledo has just undergone its celebration of Cheese Days, and the weather was just right for the occasion. The day was cloudy and not too hot, yet not raining, perfect conditions to have a parade. After the all you can eat pancake breakfast, the town was prepared to celebrate and when the parade was all said and done, the town rejoiced for grilled cheeses, just as they did 95 years ago on the first Cheese Days.

Since it has been so hot lately, I was thinking about when I was a kid and we would go to Isaac Walton. How many remember that great swimming hole? You could picnic with your family and swim with all the people from Winlock. It used to be a great place to hang out in the summer, there was a bulk head (dam) on one side and it was on the deep end... Another great time in small town America!
