It was decided that we would have a sale and have it coincide with the farm's Give Kids the World special day where a donation from each box of berries picked went to D"s favourite charity. It turned out to be an excellent weather day, sun shining and quite warm. D set up a table for GKTW and had yard sale items donated to it to sell. Two other friends set up their tables and H joined me. I don't think I got rid of too much, but some things did go, and information was given to me on who might take the leavings as a donation. H says we will gradually take the items to different places, and that's a good thing.
Here I am with a friend from PEI,looking my most stylish, to go with his excellent
taste in head gear.
Just before 8 am.....getting started
Catching up with friends from PEI

I was very tired after the long day, although the sale ended at one, there was the putting it all away again thing. Thanks to R, C, and H, I didn't have to lug anything. I had been up since 5 am and was really feeling it. Aside from that, it was a good day. I talked to some really nice people who were generous in their giving to GKTW and D realized $500 for the charity.
Sunday afternoon, our community and a neighbouring one had a joint get together picnic. It was fairly well attended, with lots of food as is usual at a potluck sort of thing, plus bbq'd hamburgs and hotdogs. Some of us got together and had a bit of a sing song, with 2 playing guitars, one on mandolin and I had my uke. My fingers were so sore after an hour or so of playing, that I had to stop.
The neat thing about this sort of picnic is the variety of age groups. There were lots of wee ones, like this little one above.
I managed to get the picnic pictures with a broken camera. Since the cover on the camera lens would not open, except for a little crack, I can not understand how the pictures came out. The screen was black as I took the picture, and then the picture showed on the screen so I knew I had got it.
I had been thinking about getting a new camera and this gave me the incentive to get one. Off I went this morning to get a new one, since I shall soon be going to White Point on the south shore, with H, for a couple of days, and I definitely will need to get some shots.
The 'charging' from the title is charging my camera battery. The 're charging' is for me at White Point.
Sometimes I take pictures of weird things. The shots below are what I would call an albino earwig.
It is all white except for its eyes. However the eyes are black, so
perhaps this is not a true albino, but still interesting.
Have a good day as August begins
Don't blink -
It will be September.
