Fantastic flooring

My husband can remember years ago helping to set up his family's business at the State Fair. They would start a month early on design followed up by two or three weeks of completely building from scratch. The whole booth and displays were all handmade. It was a long drawn out process.

In today's world it's so much easier because of companies that are making so many different designs in furnishings starting with trade show flooring. It's so nice just to interlock all the square pieces as you lay them down. What an improvement and so fast. Very impressive.

We travelled to Syracuse New York this year to watch the world bowling championship and all the flooring was trade show carpet. For me it was easy to notice because I had worked with it before and as with the regular flooring the carpet looked great. The logo mats were so bright and brilliant with their insignia you probably should have had sunglasses if you were standing next to them for any length of time. The logo canopy were used in a different way inside to cover some of the concession booths.

Central Square apple festival

This weekend is the Apple picking carnival in our village. We always like going there to taste and pick up a couple of gallons of the freshest apple cider around. Of course, they have plenty of rides for the smaller children that's why my son loves it so much when we go there. They also have some terrific barbecue chicken with salt potatoes which is my favorite. It's a yummy time.

Criss-cross to Calgary

Meeting new neighbors you just never know what kind of people they are. The ones that moved in a few years back came from Calgary. When I first talked to them I told them it was kind of funny because I just had a girlfriend moved there from the neighborhood to be with her fiance'. When looking for properties she went to, she was telling me how beautiful it is there.

After my girlfriend had moved there, I had new neighbors moved in to a three bedroom raised ranch house next door. I was almost instantly friends with the mom. The husband seemed really nice but he didn't talk much I guess he just kept to himself. After talking to his wife I found out that he is a cardiologist specialist. They had been in five different locations in the United States in the last two years including Calgary. To our amazement both girls had known each other in Calgary and not to know that they had just reversed neighborhoods in their travels over three thousand miles away.  

Fun at home with the ATV's

We had a fun weekend just staying at home. My husband got  the old ATV running so that meant that we had three to drive around. It looked like we were having a rally race around our property. Our five year old and thirteen year old headed up the pack along with my nephew pulling up the rear. It started at 10 o'clock in the morning and didn't end until they started running out of gas at 4:30 pm. What a long day and the dirt was flying everywhere.. They have so much fun on the ATV's. But now it's almost snowmobile time and I can't wait.
