Saturday, 9/20/08

A perfect fall day in Southern Vermont-sunny, cool, breezy. Visitors can't believe how good the weather is here. We had such good weather that the usual political junkies took a break to just enjoy the day. 
This was the first day for hot apple cider-leaf season cannot be far behind-peepers stopping their cars in the middle of the road to snap pictures.
After Market we held a memorial for Dwight Miller. People talked of their memories of Dwight, and we sang several verses of "America the Beautiful". It was decided to plant a tree in his memory next spring-its a little late for planting this year. 

Priscilla returns from New Hampshire for a Market visit.

Don't forget to vote. This means you!

Sunny, warm September day-many international visitors (the weak dollar has its benefits).
Chocolate Chip Guy was there. He loves chocolate chip cookies. Also, Mr Conspiracy, Old Original Hippy, Miss Cape Cod, and Gold Dollar Dude, all among my regulars,  turned up for the sunny Market.

I notice the changing tastes of the kids as they grow. Donut eating toddlers turn into cookie crunching 8 year olds, and whoopie pie devouring teens. 

Kurt update-Kurt Hackler, our intrepid bread guy and awesome cyclist, has reached Germany on his bike trip from above the Arctic circle in Norway, to Spain. Follow his and Oracle Jen's exploits on his blog, The 411-2WDs Riding Chronicles.

Politics update-Everyone previously torqued off about the national election is still torqued off. Maybe I should sell them decaf instead of high test...Nah. See you next week. Rara

Patty Austin, who makes things like.. (see below)

...these perfect little confections.

Howie's flowers, plants and veggies-the most colorful booth at Market.

Happy Birthday, Ingrid!!

Warnings of Hurricane Hanna-nothing at Market except overcast and quite humid. Some fair weather vendors failed to show up-good news for their competition who saw increased business. I felt pretty dopey all day-blah weather saps my energy. 
Everyone seemed to be caught up in the national political goings on. I heard many conversations about Sarah, Joe, Barack and John-Sounds like a Dion song; (insert musical notation here)" I saw them walking up over the hill, Barack-Sarah-Joseph-and John". 
Here's a few Market pix.

Very colorful and creatively designed bags.

Thelma and Louise live!!

Lunch tastes better at Market.

Kids belong outside.
