5 days 'til Rhinebeck

And a few more photos from Lancaster. Here we have a big giant fake cow, followed by two big giant real cow-like creatures. Oxen? I don't know, but I couldn't get over how big their heads were! They were pulling a large cart for the tourists to ride in.

On the Irish dance front - two big wins for the Kid this weekend - the exact trophy she needed (and one for good luck) to move up permanently to Preliminary Champion. She was so happy when she found out she stood there and cried in the results room. I know some of you are not into the whole Irish dance thing, but let me just say that this was a BIG FREAKING DEAL and the Kid and I are both so happy we could burst.

Tons of work to do this week so I can relax with a clear conscience at Rhinebeck (did I mention it is only five days away?) so I must get to work.

If you are looking for me for bingo or just to say hello, I will definitely be at the following places:

Saturday 1 - 3, Ellen's Half Pint Farm, building 26, booth N. I will be collecting preemie hats for Hats for Alex, if you are so inclined.

Sunday 10 am - the giant author tent of chaos. Me, the Harlot, the Mason-Dixon ladies, and Stitchy McYarnpants and many others courtesy of the fine folks at Merritt Books.

1 - 3, back at Ellen's Half Pint for more frivolity and more hat collecting.

PLEASE say hello, even if you don't want to buy a book or have one signed. I love meeting my internet friends.

Woohoo! Congrats to the Kiddo!!

I can't believe Rhinebeck is only 5 days away! Can't wait to see you again. And thank you again for being a hat collection point!
