Backyard Barbecue

This weekend we had a cookout at Tamarack! While I don't usually eat hamburgers, the people sure seemed to enjoy them, and the barbecue, too. My personal favorite was the roast corn. We had nice, hot July weather for four days. Now, it's pouring outside. I'm sure glad that the storm didn't roll in until we were finished out there! Tamarack's staff did a great job. Chef Jamie said we can do it again on Labor Day, if the weather is cooperative.

This photo shows Chris Canfield flipping those burgers.

Mountain State Art and Craft Fair

There is nothing I enjoy more than a great craft fair - and that's what Mountain State Art and Craft Fair is. I've been going for years, and I never tire of it. It takes place every year in Ripley, WV, over the July 4th holiday!

Here are some of the new friends that I made at the fair this year. From left to right: Bill Meadows takes a liking to me; Susan and Rick Bisgyer, Ridgetop Pottery; Judith Miller with her award winning video, The Captives; Chad Pitts, Art Attacks and Strokes (glass beads); Chad and me, monkeying around!
