One more day and the Puyallup fair is over. Oh happy day!!!! We who live with the fair grow very weary of the whole mess. Then there is the topic of what the fair does to our businesses. There is a reason many close for vacation or shorten their hours. So next week we will celebrate another fair over and life begins again. The quiet two weeks is nice in some respects. Store rooms get cleaned, walls get painted, floor sets are changed and we actually get to visit with each other. But like any vacation we are looking forward to regular hours and seeing our customers again.
Next weekend is the Art and Wine Walk from 3:00 to 7:00 pm here in downtown Puyallup. The tickets are $20.00 for eight tastes. This fall we will be featuring blended wines to go with our theme "Come Together". Please join us.

Wow, I've decided I'm way to old to do far away one day shows. We left at 4:00 am this morning to be in Portland in plenty of time to set up for the Crossroads Doll and Bear Show.We were home by 8:00 pm so now I've been up for 18 hours and have gotten by second breath. Soon I will crash, but it was great to see old friends. The three bears, pictured, made the journey and all three came home again, so they are still available. Enjoy the weekend.
