Silver Spring, MD is quite a hike for us. This was a very special trip for us because we got to stay with very dear family friends in Bethesda, MD. When we were based out of Saratoga Springs, NY we would see our friends, Suzi & Barry Hoffman, often but since our move to Paducah we don't get to see them as much.
This trip we added on some extra time so that we could do things like enjoying Barry's matzoh brie.
The show was fun. We had two surprises.
One was from Alonzo Davis who owns a studio here in LowerTown but lives near Silver Spring. He came by our booth and said hello. That was sweet.
And the other surprise was when someone came into our booth and told us that they just met the other artist from Paducah that was up the street. "What other artist?" I thought. So I trekked up the road and to our mutual surprise it was another artist from Paducah...
There's one more thing about our weekend that I need to share with you. It's this bug:
Oh (okay just one 'one more' thing) and this was our first road trip that we took with our dog, Nestle. She did great in the car! She didn't even complain when we stopped in Lexington on the way home and loaded up the car with 1000 lbs. of clay that she had to sit on for the rest of the trip. Oh what a fantastic dog we have!
It was a great weekend full of lots of cherished visiting.
