How do you know when you're not in California anymore? When you look outside on August 1 and see this.
This is not only a wonderful table my Sister-in-law painted, but there is WATER on it!
These are not dew drops.
These are RAIN DROPS!
Every time we have traveled to Oregon it has rained!
That must be why Oregon has flowers and gardens that look like this...
and can be planted in containers like this!
After the rain settled we traveled to the town of Silverton to see the
Homer Davenport Day Parade.
Yes, this is an Elvis impersonator...(Look at the legs draped over the back. I was so taken by the performance that I never noticed the legs until I downloaded the photo!)
and yes this is the local nurses performing in the Bedpan Brigade.Well, the weekend didn't end there. We had a wonderful Family Reunion with Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Nieces and Nephews. This time we seemed to know everyone. Last time an unknown Hispanic family showed up. They stayed to themselves mostly and no one asked who they were because we were all too embarrassed since we figured we were related somehow! We still don't know.....who knows, they too may have wondered where they were!
And I did what I tell my children to never do!
I met up with someone I met on the internet!
Well, here in blogland and it was Sammy!
You know Sammystuff!
That was Awesome! She took me to two of the Russian fabric stores in the area
and then off to her AMAZING STUDIO!
Talk about overwhelming! I could hardly breath!
Cool art and stuff...Sammys Stuff everywhere!
I even received gifts that I'll share with you later!
