Finally, after so many years, we get a commission to do a piece with a PINK house! Hooray!!!!
Two Years Ago...HER: I'll make you a deal. You let me take off the vinyl siding on the house, put up wooden Cape Cod clapboard and you can choose any colour in the world you want for the house.

Lovely Customer "OH...these are those mothers I have heard so much about!....ANY MOTHERS ALLOWED IN?"
ME: "Ha,ha......they are mummers. Any mummers allowed in."
Lovely Customer: " YES! I LOVE IT! What fun for all of the mums to get dressed up like that. I wonder how that tradition started. ANY MOTHERS ALLOWED IN?"
ME : "OH, the old time tradition of mothers dressing up at Christmas and going door to door, asking any mothers allowed in?
I haven't got a clue!!!

Yesterday, a lovely lady picked up a particularly googly-eyed, pink and orange fish with sequins and asked if that type of fish was native to the region. I smiled and said I was not sure. Lovely lady bought the fish.
SHE thinks my fish are crazy. It was very nice to meet someone who actually thought that a sequin-bedazzled-pink-orange-googly-eyed fish might actually exist. In the cold waters of Newfoundland.
Very nice indeed.
Speaking of FISH....we had a gorgeous trouty dinner at Old Foolishness the other night. Thank you THANK you to the best cooker of fish in all the land! It was fabulous and a wonderful time was had by all!
