Another Busy Busy Day !

This morning it was up and at it before 6 am.  Out, about, back in and feeding before 7 am.  Social Facebook updates done for the "Crabby Cabbie" and The "Checkerboard Aussies".  Rob out the door with a hot thermos of soup.  Dishes, bed made, vacuuming and dusting done before it was time to head out the door to pickup my friend Gayle, as we were off to the Wiarton Community Center to attend to the Women's Spring Expo !

The number of Vendors was amazing !  the disappointment was that there were hardly any people in attendance.  This I was surprised about, as it was an extremely organized Event with lots of advertising going on leading up to this day.  Ha ! to make things worse after having only taking a few photos the batteries in my camera died.  The funny thing about this was before I walked out the door, that little voice in my head said, "you should re-charge your camera batteries a little bit before leaving".  How often do you listen to your little voice in your head?  Obviously I should more often then naught, as I have been caught on other things before.

The few photos I did get were ....

.... of Kris Dawson with her Epicure..  Never meet Kris before? she is so sweet and knowledgeable about her products.  Give Kris a call at 519-935-2320 to order your Epicure Products.   Another of my favourite persons to see was Cathy of Cathy's Confections along with her husband, Clare.  Jeez I wish I wasn't trying to be more careful of my waistline as Cathy's butter tarts and handmade chocolates are "Out of this World".  Custom orders always available by Cathy, just check her out at her website HERE, or look her up on Faceook HERE.   Of course I had been drawn to the lady with the Homemade Fudge, knowing darn well I couldn't have any.  It had been the first time I had met this lady is who is Jackie's HOME-MADE -FUDGE out of Sauble Beach.  Have a very sweet tooth, give her a call at 519-422-2728..  Next was some more really really good stuff at the PineStone Preserves table with lots of old favourites & new ideas there in the way of preserves.  Great gift giving ideas for everyone was on Laurel's table.  Laurel is also located in Sauble Beach at 519-422-0766.  There was one particular Apple Pie Jelly I think I will be picking up for my Son's Birthday in July. "

"Pictured here is Laurel, who also has Laurel's Bed & Biscuits, Your Dog's home away from home !  Once again need your best friend looked after, or your kitteh minded? give Laurel a call at 519-422-0766."

Gayle and I really had enjoyed ourselves in the short time Gayle had for her lunch hour away from work.  I did go back to catch-up with a few others I had not gotten to see though.  

Not long after getting back home, I had to hook-up with my "Crabby Cabbie" who just happened to have some photos of the McKenzie Family Benefit as it was getting off to a start first thing this afternoon.

"There were both our "Crabby Cabbie" vehicle up front and center.  Tim and Sarah were also there from the Green Door Cafe & Catering in Wiarton.  Inside Rob captured a photo of Tommy Gilham and The Chill Boys already belting out the tunes.  Lastly was Tim and Sarah's son, Nolan, who brought out a whole meal, and dessert for My "Crabby Cabbie" Rob and the "Crabby Cabbie's" Carolyn.... thanks for looking after him for me, Nolan !"

"Rob also got to get some photos of the buffet table set up, as well as the donations along the tables for the Silent Auction.  I see the Garden Ornament my friend, Lisa at Yard Works and I, along with The "Checkeboard Aussies" having had donated."

Rob reported back to me early this evening that the Mercer children had all gone together to bid on the Lawn Ornament we had donated for their Mother, Coral Mercer.  Coral told Rob she was so happy getting it.  WOW that makes me feel even better knowing that garden angel got such a wonderful home with someone I know !!!

Pssst .... here I am again, but until the 12th of May I hope I am a lovable "pain".  Because of YOUR support and daily votes we are now at 458 Votes, 57 more then two days ago.  Many thanks to friends who have also been sharing the link to their own personal Facebook pages, what a wonderful gesture on all your parts.

My day here is almost done and NO puppies yet; maybe tomorrow as that is Mercedes actual "due date".  Out, about and back in one more time with the Gang and then calling it a night here, "Just North of Wiarton & South of the Checkerboard".


  1. Too bad that people didn't want to come to such fun occasion! If I live closer, I would be with you there in a heartbeat :) I hope puppies will be here very soon :)

  2. Hi Cindy! Thanks for posting the pics, my fav being the "fudge Lady" - have known her and her husband for years visiting with them at the Oliphant Flea markets every Saturday at the Oliphant Women's Institute and the Mar Flea Market Sundays during the summer months. It's my kids favorite place to "shop" at the markets and her fudge is out of this world! Looks like a fun full packed busy day! Thanks for posting the pics!

  3. That is a large community centre!


How nice of you to drop around to have a wee visit with me to see what I have been up to from time to time. I look forward to your comments as they add much brightness to my each and every day to know there are such wonderful people out there.
