Sanna's Bag

“I never seem to have what I need when I need it. I’m going to make a belt-bag that’s bigger on the inside than on the outside, and just carry everything with me.”

Lynksys is no my fren'

All weekend, when it came to getting online with the laptop, I was the bug. Today, however, I am all windshield, all the way! so here are a few photos of what we did when I wasn't trying to get on line.
Saturday morning, we got out the bikes before it got too hot and took a ride. And oh, my, we wound up riding along a stretch of railroad track where some steam engine buffs have got an old locomotive out and running.

See all the happy men and boys? There were more grins on more males than I have seen in a long time. It was loud and dirty and just too cool!

And they had a really nice caboose, too. I like a good caboose, don't you?
After the train went by, we pedaled further along the bike path. At 2.5 miles I had to stop and take a aphoto, (and rest my legs just a bit) Isn't this a lovely city?

That eveninng, we met J & C downtown for dinner, got a good meal for a good price with good company. Then we strolled around a bit since it was warm and people were out watching one another and we had all eaten wayy too much. (I had cioppino. I love the crunchy squiddy bits. Blossoms of little legs, and those dear little rings. Yum, yum!) We meandered over to Pioneer Courthouse Square, and I got my photo taken with the umbrella man. I wanted a photo op with the dinner party, but didn't see anyone I trusted to give the camera back if I handed it to them.

knitting has gone on. Another lace sample, a couple of beaded neck-laces, and a nice scarf. Those neck pieces are addictive. Fast, pretty, and easy!

And Sunday, we went out to the Farmer's Market again. I really do have a thing for hats.

    Hey hat lady, just heard that there's an International Millinery Forum with workshops in my home town 17-22 Jan 2009. You interested? Apparently the local area teems with milliners and they are happy to share their skills... OK gotta go and check the young'un.

    I love that hat. I think it's a hat that even I (a confirmed anti-hat wearing, even in coldest winter, person)might look good in. And you do live in a beautiful city.

    You have a flair for wearing hats and making them look good. Keep em coming.

    You do flatter an elegant chapeau, and vice versa. But you should have saved that second pic for Caboose Watch Wednesday.

    Oooh... I like that hat...graceful and elegant and ever so you!

    Boys and trains... from the Cave Troll to his grandpa, there's a total love of trains...sounds like a weekend for taking pictures and not downloading them to me!!!!

    (Okay--must ask--what is the Umbrella man? I saw the picture, but I'm having problems writing a definition...)

    Yes, you DO look good in hats AND you have excellent hat taste. Having a lovely swan neck doesn't hurt either.
