Beachy, Just Beachy
In July, I did manage to spend three lovely days (except for my aching back) out at Victoria Beach and had hoped to spend a few more on a weekend in September, but alas, I think that is not to be. Schedules and preparing for heavy duty fall commitments has left little time to idle at the beach. However, I do think that taking a day off here and there would do wonders!
I've done lots of market type events this summer; almost one every weekend. At the most recent one, (The Morden Corn and Apple Festival) I encountered Breanne, who is also a polymer clay person of sorts. I say that tongue in cheek, because she is also an aeronautical engineer. (Yah, really) but she has a fun side to her, that makes an explanation of why the extrusion of a Klimt Cane in mathematical terms makes sense; in terms that a mere regular science type can understand. (Watching too many of Big Bang Theory Lectures I think!) Anyway, last year I had made a few of these light switches and she asked for a couple more, so I'm showing this one here, before it's gone.
This weekend I'll actually be at two 'events'. On Saturday I'll be at the "Christmas in September" Art and Craft Sale at the Victoria Beach Sports Club, and then on Sunday we'll be setting up the tent at the Locks Market under the bridge by Skinner's in Lockport. Two weekends ago they celebrated the Lockport Dam Festival there and in spite of a cruel wind on the Saturday, the Festival was a great success. Unfortunately, Hubby's $20 000 tagged catfish wasn't caught (again) this year, but the committee did see fit to award some substantial merchandise prizes to a few lucky participants who entered the contest. Those tagged catfish are swimmin' around somewhere wondering, "Why am I wearing this tag thing on my dorsal fin?" I wonder just how many of those dam catfish have similar 'garb'?
