If you’re from Danville, you know that one sure sign that it’s going to be getting warmer is the opening of Hunter’s Dairy Freez. It’s like Punxatawney Phil, but it always means the end of winter. So, yesterday was the first day of Hunter’s, and we were there – including my niece Leah who decided it was high-time she had some ice cream to celebrate Hunter’s open doors.
She’s just too cute, isn’t she?
Here’s another one:
So as you go outside and see snow piles, don’t worry – summer’s alsmost here, I can feel it!

Last night was the Danville Halloween parade, and anybody who’s anybody in Danville was there, duh.
That includes the Bowmans and the Wislocks! (We happen to have spots near each other’s so I know this for a fact- and yes, in Danville, you have parade route “spots”)
It was good – we couldn’t stay for the whole thing because my niece (photos of her in her Halloween costume coming next week!) was getting restless and cold, but the good portion we saw was really good.
Lots of floats and plenty of goodies for everyone!
Here’s some highlights from our photographer:
And my personal favorite highlight comes from Brandt Bowman, whose dad, city editor Bill Bowman, took this photo of him eating the munchkins given away by Dunkin Donuts.
