Today started off with a pancake breakfast for the 4-H. Normally on the fourth Sunday we go the pancake breakfast they have at the Veteran’s Memorial Hall. This is a big Ferndale tradition. Why the 4-H scheduled their breakfast for the same weekend, I’m not sure. We heard some people hit both. We were joined at the table by Ken and Sharon, the recently retired owners of the Gingerbread Mansion. (Hi Ken!) We also ran into Wayne, who has offered us a tour of their old house. We met Wayne and Linda at the sesquicentennial parade. Wayne is an old car buff, and is good friends with Dan Erceg, who we know from the VPA. Wayne and Linda recently purchased a house in Ferndale, in fact they live next door to the one that burned down in December. So Wayne wanted us to come back and see the house under better conditions than pouring rain and blazing fire. Afterwards, he gave us a ride in his Studebaker touring car. I forget the year, but it is really nice looking and it was pretty fun driving the backroads of Ferndale in such a fine car.
