When at last the work is done....

I have been a very bad blogger. I have dropped down to two posts
or less during the summer.
I have not been resting, I have been busy.. First up..
We ventured (my wife Harriet and I) out to Altamont Fair
and made a bee line to the sheep shed.















While we were there, I got to photograph some
ribbon winning crafts and a spinning competition.




















Spinning with a spindle




















I have to say, I STILL can't
spin with a spindle.. maybe I don't have the touch
for it..

But we can't leave the fairgrounds
until we meet up with friends
and get some FAIR FOOD...



















Deadly to Harriet, FRIED DOUGH
oooh look at that sugary glutenous mass!!!

I also have to look up to the Heldebergs..















Did I forget to mention, the fair always falls on
the HOTTEST days of the year?

No matter... the next day we got to
hang out at my Sister In Law Susan's house...

The Twins were there...

The soon to be Harvard Grad Allison and I
















The soon to be Vassar grad Matt...



















We don't get to see those two often enough!

The Blogless Father In Law, Lester..
with Claire















It was a great weekend.

Stay tuned, next post for Knitting content.

  1. What a great picture of my dad and Claire. And also of you and Allison. And now, today, we go back to spend MORE time with the family.
