Local festivals are charming and the Yuma Lettuce Festival promised to entertain and delight. A man encloses himself in a balloon and bounces all over the street. We somehow missed him but we did get to see the ladies modeling their hats and jewelry made of lettuce, brussel sprouts, onions and...well you get the idea. They really got into it and played to the crowd and it WAS charming. However, Murphys has so many street festivals that I attend (or not), that I realized half the fun is meeting and greeting half your neighbors and friends. Even, so, I would opt to do it again.
The local quilt faire was quite well done, as well. Our own guild in Calaveras County, the Independence Hall Quilters does a superb job and their workmanship is superior. (Of course, I'm biased.) But, hail to all quilters and lettuce queens. It was an excellent last day in Yuma.
Until Tomorrow
Back in Murphys, Karen tells me they have had false spring. She says,
"We can't send it back, so we might as well enjoy it."
(Jim is jealous of our weather...Heh, heh, heh!)
