Trudy and other stuff

Just a few scenes from last weekend.
First up, I would like to introduce you to Trudy

Trudy travels


I was standing there watching this guy and the lady who the pottery wheel belonged to started talking to me. She was having a bit of an anxiety attack because she said she NEVER lets her wheel get this messy. He had that stuff everywhere. He had even wiped stripes of it under his eyes.


No monkey business here. Or is it?

Has anyone else had problems uploading pictures to blogger today? It took forever to upload these today.

Is that a real monkey? Is that a real calliope?? Wow, I would love to see one!

A very interesting selection Ann ... do wish I could have heard the organ. It is an organ, isn't it? The pottery wheel reminded me of a delightful comedy called 'The Good Life' - leading characters Tom and Barbara who give up their jobs and decide to dig up their front and back garden in serberbia to live off the land. I couldn't find the clip where they take a course in pot throwing on a wheel but here is where they make some home-made wine: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aAh2xAhEbuQ

Happy Weekend to you and yours!

You did have a cool weekend!!!
I haven't had any problems with Blogger today.

Well those are things that we don't see around here! Looks like a fun event whatever it was!

I didn't have trouble with blogger earlier today but an Etsy teammate had trouble loading photos an hour ago.

I think pottery wheels should get messy. Much more fun being creative if you don't worry about a bit of untidiness.

verrrryyy interesting my dear! i would love to see the organ grinder with the monkey. i did not have any problems uploading, but i did mine early, so late could mean there was a problem. the man looks like a little kid playing in mud pies. i used to love to make mud pies

I hope Ms. Trudy never has to travel on I-80 in your fair state. That is, unless they have greatly improved road conditions since the last time I made a trip on it. For she would surely be shook into a million pieces.

Grampy said...

Great Pictures Ann. Sorry about the blogger problem. I heard someone else complain about it.

Marg said...

That looks like a very interesting visit you had. Trudy is very interesting. That clay person looks like they are making some good stuff. The monkey man is great too. Hope you have a great Sunday and a better Fourth of July.

Ann said...

Looks like a fun time - true Americana. No trouble with photos, but can't get to my dashboard from my homepage... always somethin'! Hope it will sort itself out soon.

Did you go to a fair? Lots of interesting things there. Haven't loaded any pictures yet - but with the 4th of July there is probably an internet surge.

Happy 4th.

Anny said...
