Photos from Cathedral Festival street fair

We were up early helping out with the swamp room at the Cathedral Community Centre.

On the way home to get a rest before the parade we got mini-donuts with no line in front of the truck! We also ran into Geremy and Ellen and met Aurora for the first time.
David and Angie were at a Sask Writers Guild tent.
The crowd got thicker and thicker as we made our way home. Once at home, we had only a few minutes to collect ourselves before heading back for the parade which had a wedding taking place during it.

There is a new living statue.

unproductive day

This morning I took dad for some pre-operation tests (which really was me sitting in the waiting room doing a crossword for over two hours) and this afternoon I finally started catching up on all the email I've had piling up. We took a look at the art that Robin has for auction at the Westminster and will likely put a bid or two in. All in all a busy but unproductive day.

Ghost photography exhibition opening

Thanks to everyone who came out to support the photography we did yesterday in the YAAG using long exposures to simulate 19th century ghost photography. Above is the adorable Fiona and her giant dad (I couldn't even get his head in the shot), the amazing Mike Rollo - thanks for being here.

Ghost photography workshop

Although it was apparently scheduled, neither Margaret nor I were aware that the power was to be shut off at our house from 9am to 3pm. Not only that, but the power was actually off until past 6 when we left for supper, being unable to eat at home. I did manage to present the ghost photography workshop in the YAAG as scheduled in the Cathedral Arts Festival pop up gallery guide. I had about 15 people come by and get photos taken. I didn't manage to create a hand out to explain stuff, but did it all orally. It went well. In the middle of it all the cable guys arrived to increase my internet speed.  After supper at the diner, William and I went to see Trudy Stewart's film she made with Noel Starblanket. Great crowd and great discussion. Quite an evening.

Filmpool Premiere night

Filmpool moved its Screening Under the Steeple screening from Friday to Tuesday this year to accommodate people who wanted to go to Yorkton Film Festival. They also made it a curated (by Ella) premiere night. The crowd was intimate but appreciative. My film "The End of Another Day (a Wheat Soup story)" screened publicly for the first time and was received well.
William and I watched the first two episodes of the new Twin Peaks on CraveTV.

Canister spotted at the Cathedral Festival parade

While many ran if fear, not even the police stationed around the perimeter dared to evict the dangerously unwelcome Canister the Robot from the Cathedral Arts Festival parade this morning.

Dad is recovering well

Since dad got out of the hospital Thursday evening, he has been doing quite well. He was in the hospital for almost 9 days, the first two being mostly non-responsive he was so sick. There were quite a few symptoms so there were quite a few tests but eventually they determined that his gall bladder was the primary culprit. With gall stones and other bile and junk plugging it up, he got really sick and it threw off blood sugar and digestion and many other things. It is temporarily fixed but will be removed in a few weeks. Other than some lack of energy, he is back to his old self.
