Then the lovely and generous Linda from RV Vagabonds sent me a beautifully beaded batty bracelet that she made for me. I am adding this to this years accessories for my Madame Zoleena's fortune tellers costume for Halloween. My only payment for this bracelet is that I have the grands take a picture of me as the mystic herself. Thank you Ms. Linda. Will do.
I haven't been to one of these humongous craft shows in many years. I used to sell, then attended, then it became too much to endure with the crowds, the heat and my bad old legs. But I promised Shel and the kids that after they had gotten up at the butt crack of dawn and watched the final mass ascension that I would go with them to the Rio Grande......for the adventure. It was a lot of fun seeing old friends doing new things, meeting new crafts people with vivid and wonderful items to sell. The grands, Shel and I got matching rings from a jewelery maker I've known for over 20 years, clay donkeys for our herd corner and wonderful recycle useful art from a new friend.
But the best part of the day was when we stopped to have a bite to eat at the food court (Indian fry bread tacos) and the kids joined in the entertainment by dancing their feet off to the Watermelon Jug Band music and then played recycled junk as percussion instruments with the Recycle Man. RyLeigh was jumping all over the place and attracted the attention of the Recycle Man before RM even started his set. GK trying to get her brother to 2 step to a Hank Williams Sr. song, "Hey, hey good looking" was a crowd pleaser, especially when she "dipped" her bro. The Cuckoos showed their ham bones again. And so another "good time" was had by all.
Tonight will be a very welcome time to join with many as we begin a new moon cycle and welcome in the Samhain time. I have Halloweened myself to pieces in the last two weeks and now it is time to center and glean the messages and focus energies to the remembering of the ancients and closing out the year with acknowledgment of lessons learned and prospects of new opportunities to learn in the new year. I will be directing myself towards another new year. Oma Linda
