Didn't have as many of the usual scheduling conflicts this year.

Ran into a vendor/jewelry maker from whom I had bought my favorite necklace 15 years ago -- and I was wearing it. We didn't recognize each other at first and she didn't recognize the necklace (although she thought it was similar to some she'd made), but then I recognized her name on her business card and reminded her of where we'd met, etc.

Some of the usual food vendors weren't there because of recent illnesses -- so I actually got a chance to eat something other that my old favorites. (Time in between music is always at a premium -- the hardest decisions are what to cut short because you desperately need to eat or to find a bathroom!) So satisfied by potato pancake craving (along with stuffed cabbage likle my mother makes) and had the wonderful Turkish veggie plate with hummus and tomato/cucumber salad and stuffed grape leaves, etc.

Spent too much money (uh huh) with Sandy and Dick and listened to Art Thieme all the way home.
