Craft Fair Day

It was a little chilly outside this morning so most folks donned a light jacket.  We still had plenty of beautiful clear sky and sunshine.....and good spirits, friendship, and FUN.

Cool temps didn't keep the water volleyball enthusiasts from playing.  They had a great time anyway.  Click on this link to watch a short video.

The new shuffleboard courts work very well.  The only complaint I heard is that their aim happens to be a little "off" but I don't think they can blame the courts.  

 

Say Howdy to the folks back home.
 

The second Tuesday of each month we all head up to the big craft fair.  Here's jubulant Tracey Madison again as she tries on the latest fashion in crazy hats.  Looks like it is a perfect fit for her fun loving personality.
 
Doug and Mona Conkle were busy at work assuring everything was on time and running smoothly.  We always look important when we carry a clipboard.  Makes us look professional.  (Cute hat Mona!)
 
 

There was a nice crowd as shoppers poured over the merchandise.  Carolyn Stone has a booth where she sells her quilting and sewing handiwork.  Her cloth children's books are just awesome.
 
I called out her name and certainly attracted everyone's attention.
 

The Lions Club is sponsoring a DUCK RACE.  Yup.  A duck race.  Buy one of these cute little plastic ducks and you become the proud sponsor of a racing duck.  At a date to be announced later, they'll release these little critters in Palm Creek waterway and away they'll go.  The ducks are numbered on the bottom so we'll know who the lucky winners are.  Watch for future announcements.
 

Actually.....the lucky winners will be the therapy dogs that are sponsored by the Lions Club.  I forgot this fella's name but he is in training as a therapy dog and visits hospitals and nursing homes to visit the patients and bring a smile to their faces.  Sounds like a very worthy cause......I bought two and will definitely be on hand to photograph the winners.
 

Inside the ballroom were MANY shoppers.  I only took one photo inside, but it is worthy of the space.  What beautiful workmanship.  I wish the sewing group would start a blog to show off all the beautiful projects they create.  They do so much for charities as well.  
 

Meanwhile....back in the kitchen....Marilyn Goeken and Pat Mitchel were hard at work making lunch for everyone.  Thank you to the whole staff for a great meal.  It is so nice to get a lunch here and then join friends out on the pretty patio by the pool.
