I work this festival with a friend every year. We are "the gourd ladies". This is Amador City.
I would be a city mouse/country mouse and have the little old house in town... in addition to the farm.
I know... I'm a dreamer. It's like wanting the houseboat on the river and an old driftwood fenced house at the ocean. I guess I will never be happy in just one place.
Anyway, we had a wonderful evening. It was Friday, the 13th... but I figured that the week couldn't get any worse than it had been, so it was all up hill from here.
We listened to Herb Boxhorn and his talented duo play wonderful summertime songs next to the river.
This was just what I needed to get away and forget the empty goat house for a while.
Our table was in front of the Bell Flower Home and Garden outdoor store. They sell metal flowers, fences, gates and animals.
I refrained from buying this wonderful creature and enjoyed the rest of the evening.
My sister arrived on Sunday. She is here for a short visit. The Corgi boys were so happy to see her.
Yesterday we drove to Amador City. Most of the stores were closed and the streets were empty. It looked so different than Friday night.
Then we hit Starbucks and got pedicures in Jackson. We drove home and guess what happen?
Carl and Cutter are not happy about this.
He was incensed at its audacity for standing right there and glaring at him.
All day, when the dogs went outside they would repeat the whole " Oh my gosh, what is this?" scenario again. It was really funny..... The growling, the posturing, and the ability to forget that this usurper was there, each time they went outside.
So...Donkey spent the night out there. He seemed OK about it. And the dogs?...
Today, they are fine with this visitor and seem to have accepted him as part of the garden art. I guess it's because he doesn't move or smell. He has become a fixture and I'm personally hoping that my sister will forget him when she goes home.
Don't say a word ... She's 60 this year. She is, sometimes, forgetful .
Don't you think he looks good right where he is?
