Last weekend was the 39th Annual Pink Palace Arts and Crafts Fair. My wife and I have had a booth at this fair for 29 years. She's a spinner [of fibers like sheep, llama, alpaca, angora, cotton, flax, etc.]. I'm her assistant. I card the wool [comb the fibers with a drum carder to make sure the fibers are all aligned] before she spins it. This 4-day fair is one of the highlights of our year. It's like a family reunion. Artists and craftsmen from all over the country gather here once a year. We go out together for dinner[s] and catch up on the happenings since our last "reunion".
