Quite a few people (men and women) stopped to pet Sara’s snake.
I have mixed feelings about The Pacific National Exhibition (PNE). Just as I’m growing accustomed to the endless days of summer, the PNE arrives reminding me that summer is slowly ending and fall classes are about to start. On the other hand the PNE is a wonderful place to people watch, ride amusement rides, pet farm animals and eat junk food.
Two of my friends and I attended Saturday night. We ate: Fish & Chips, Mini Doughnuts, Kettle Corn, Deep Fried Blueberry Pie and Deep Fried Pickles. However, I drew the line at trying Chocolate Covered Bacon!
I saw this on my way home Saturday evening. I love the simplicity of the white peplum
dress with black trim! It would have looked stunning at Le Diner en Blanc (Aug. 22).
I can’t imagine the sensation of having a tattoo drawn along my spine! I asked Jessica what it meant. Here’s what she wrote for me,
“All that you are is the result of what you have thought.
Happiness is when you think, say and do is in harmony.”
I also learned Jessica’s a fashion design student. She draws inspiration from Alexander McQueen and Coco Chanel.
Curtis and I were standing in the same line for a Jerk Chicken Wrap. I asked about his tattoo. He said it took 25 hours over a period of 10 months.
At home I did a web search to translate “Una vida sin pesar” (the phrase at the bottom of his tattoo). It means “A life without regret”. I find the mixture of a Spanish phrase with a Buddhist scene very intriguing.
The hula dancer lamp has been a fixture in Uptown Espresso & Bakery for several years.
