Flying Burger Scarf

Well I had to buy this silk scarf the other day at a consignment shop. The owner and I spent 10 minutes trying to figure out what these things are -- furry hamburgers? She said hats. My husband thinks they are Czechoslovakian chestnuts. Whatever they are, why are they blue inside? And what are those blue spots?

Decoration Committee

Sometimes, you get asked to be on the Decoration Committee, a job which I always have fun with! This time, it was for a Memorial Picnic in the park, celebrating the life and music of a friend of ours who passed away this year. CT Tucker was the leader of a band called the Blue Sparks from Hell, and in addition to being a great entertainer, he raised potbellied pigs and other animals.

Over the past week, 60 day-glo pigs were in production, and were destined to swing from the rafters of the party pavillion, along with giant banners featuring song names and phrases. All in all we had a great time, hundreds of people came, and the little piggies danced every time the wind blew!
