No pictures today I'm afraid.
Yesterday me and my friend Gina went to the Alaska State Fair. Mostly we wanted to see how the doll dress our friend Donna's daughter made did in the craft competition (Blue Ribbon, way to go you!!) - then we went and looked around.
There were little chicks coming out of eggs and baby pigs and goats and all kinds of kid games. And wonderful African acrobats doing all kinds of unbelievable stuff. And artists who did beautamous Alaskan images. One feller did wonderful paintings, including some of the Alaska Rail Road my dad would love. Another lady did gorgeous critter pictures using torn art paper collages. Unfortunately she didn't have art cards or anything I could afford, but gosh was her work pretty.
Oh - the mutant alien cabbages? Well they can grow some monster veggies up here - I mean like a cabbage that would outweigh a medium sized dog, and a turnip the size of my head. Pretty darn weird looking at, I tell you. Though it does leave one oddly hungry..
Oh, and I found a truck. Just need to wait to have the seller put the starter back in and bolt the hood down. And go pay for it of course. Finally, some mobility!
Lastly - just went to my first class Monday night. Looks like it's gonna be interesting, and pretty fast paced. Whooie...
