"Leave Me A Note"

3:00 p.m. - 2004-06-30

Folk, Festivals, and Frippery

T and I did something extraordinary last night! We left the house!!! No really! We went downtown to take in some of the Folk festival. In all my 18 plus years in this city this is the first time I’ve actually taken in any kind of festival. Oh, I’ve wandered around downtown during various and different festivals, but never paid to enter one. Our inner harbour is small enough that you can be pretty much within a city block and you’ll hear everything anyway. But to actually be amongst the madding crowd is something out of the ordinary.

I highly recommend it if you’re in the vicinity this weekend. It’s only 6 bucks, and has a variety of things to see, hear, taste, and feel. A virtual variety pack on the senses. The wristband pass is good for the entire festival. Do yourself a treat and check it out. (Except Laura-Jane – I don’t think her feet could handle it).

On a lighter note, thanks to Fuzzmom I’ve found another silly, senseless survey to fill out. Thought you might like a little something to while away your visiting time.

In the mean time – have a most excellent July 1st Canadian readers. Weird having a day off in the middle of the week, but do make the most of it and celebrate 137 years of confederation. To you American readers who actually get a long weekend – stars and stripes to you too!!

Cheers – LJ
