Award-Rewarding

Award-Rewarding

So inevitably, when I hear about awards, I jump to the scene in A Christmas Story, where the father wins “A Prestigious Award.” Fra-geel-lay, must be Italian. Last week was the High Peaks Art Festival which was my first real juried art show, with awards. I wasn’t expecting anything, but was a little hopeful. Friday I set up my brand spanking new, official art show booth tent. No more Walmart special that is falling apart, needs new screws, buttons are…

Fairs in the Mountains

Fairs in the Mountains

So, it is my goal to pop from mountain-town to mountain-town doing arts and crafts shows during the weekends in summer.

I called, and lo and behold, there was free trailer parking! I arrived, and the gentleman working the door pointed…

The Road Less Traveled

The Road Less Traveled

It’s been one week since I opened the trailer door on full-time RVing. My water ran out today, so that’s another think to figure out how to do. As with most things on the “rig” (not used to calling my home and tow-vehicle a “rig” it’s a little twitch-worthy for me) it’s not hard, just a lot to navigate. I thought my propane tanks were already empty, pulled up to a place and found that they were practically full. With…
