What A Positively Wonderful Day With Googly Eyes & All...

In our neck of the woods, we had a wonderful event, entitled~

Positively Pomfret Day

What it entailed was a bit of a small town fair, of crafters, small businesses, activities for the kids such as games & crafts, music, town government departments with tables & booths doing public relations with the town residents, which of course included our town's~ Conservation Commission.

This is the second year that the Pomfret Conservation Commission did an ecological craft with the children of the community. Last year the kids worked on; Conservation/Nature Flags, which really was a big hit, & due to that, we certainly had to make sure we got these flags, once again out of storage, to take to the breeze, & enjoy, which we did!

This years craft project was listed as Mr. & Mrs. Potato Head, & let me say, in all honesty I didn't think last year's flag project could be out done, but I think perhaps it was, for by approximately 1:05pm or so, the last potato was being worked on by one of our very talented customers. What can I say, potatoes here, & potatoes there, what a history of~ one of the most versatile vegetables to come out of the ground~
Mr. Mrs. & shall we say, Miss, & Ms. Potato Head, too!

Potato salad anyone?

Thanks Barb. It was a fun event, & it kept the week chugging along, as we just did our UN Peace Day event only last Sunday!
Time does fly, & sometimes, it's quite the challenge w/ just 24 hours to a day, & now it's onward towards Rosh Hashanah, "the head of the year"!
