After dark at the market...

After dark at the market, you never know what's going to happen.

Things can get downright spooky.

A great day in Palouse...

Saturday was beyond lovely in our little town to celebrate Palouse Days. With so many activities (Pancake Breakfast, Ping Pong Ball Drop, Egg Toss, etc, etc, etc...), I barely photographed a drop in the bucket, but it was fun! Here's the little bit I did catch:

parade anticipation outside the market

our veterans

the Lentil Express

the Palouse Royalty Court

the Gar-Pal Viking Crew Booster Club

And, on to the car show...WOW! 

If you missed this year, mark your calendar for next September. It'll be here before we know it!

This recently-arrived bin of squash is a thing of beauty.
Can warm, wooly sweaters and hot cups of cocoa be far behind?

Anxiously anticipating fall,
