All That Glitters is not Gold, Sometimes it's Beads, and Sometime's it's a Campfire

Leading campfire songs:

Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn, one big eye
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee"
It looks like a purple eater to me

Singing along:

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
(One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me (One eye?)

Story Teller. I'm not sure whether this one was about "The Hairy Man" or "The Duck." But the story teller asked the audience if we knew what the only thing the Hairy Man was afraid of. Eric responded "The Barber." The correct answer was dogs.

Miles appers to be enjoying the tale:

Gabby and Ian were transfixed too:

After the show was over, we all went out to Islands, a restaurant chain in our area.
Adele demonstrated something that, to me is just wrong. She ordered Thousand Island dressing for her salad, and had the request turned down because they do not make it in their restaurant! And no, our waitress could neither confirm or deny the fact that they don't have it on their menu because there are not 1000 locations in the chain yet.

My haul from the Bead Society of Los Angeles semi-annual bazzar. I will talk more about it later.

Size 11 Czech and Japanese Seed Beads:

Unusually shaped Japanese seed beads. I don't know what I'm going to use them for yet, but they were beautiful:

Size 15 Japanese Seed Beads:

Hand blown decorative beads by Suzanne. I had the good fortune to meet her today. I have some ideas what I will use these for although the prices will force the resulting finished jewelry to be a bit higher in price than I would have hoped in today's economic times. Ah well. I'll figure it out in the end.

the beads are absolutely beautiful, and the kids looked like they had a blast at the story telling event.

One of my favorite campfire songs:

Make new friends, and keep the old,
One is silver and the other gold.

(sung in unison first and then as a round. It's so pretty.)

The beads are so beautiful. I expect you'll create something amazing from them--as usual!
