As promised, here is a picture of an artists booth at the Bethel Arts and Music Festival yesterday. A mounted deer head and a chair. Now, I have nothing against taxidermy. If you insist on having decapitated wildlife in your living room, it's really the only way to go but I had never seen it at an art fair before. The street was open for traffic so it was easy for him to pass out cards to cars stopped at the traffic light. The taxidermist seemed to have a good time, the deer, not so much.
The day was very cold and blustery.Temps were in the 40's and gusts of 35 to 45 mph made a very rough day on the street and a light turnout. My tent was securely weighted but the wind kept twisting it so much that I was afraid it would be damaged. Luckily my brother stopped by and we recruited a couple of other guys to move it to an open area and strike it about noon. I sold some mugs and enough jars and woodfired pieces to make it a low average day in the country but the weather was so brutal that I was wearing everything I could find in the truck except the floor mats. After a "be back" actually came back and bought a large woodfired jar about 3pm I said enough is enough and my hypothermic fingers started packing up to go home. Oh yeah, One more high spot was Dominos Pizza was behind my booth.I ran in and ordered a a sandwich which they were kind enough to bring out to the booth. Turned out to be a recession special.You know, they couldn't make both ends meat. Oh well, sauce cheese and bread had to be good for me. At least it was warm.
