My Dad. Mr. Low Key.

The Smithsonian Folklife Festival features Texas, Bhutan and NASA this year. Dad worked at NASA for 40+ years. This is how the conversation went last week.

Dad: "You know the folklife festival?"

Brewgal: "The one on the mall? Sure."

Dad: "Well, this year NASA is one of the topics."

Brewgal: "Really? Neat."

Dad: "Yeah. And oh by the way, I'm one of the exhibits."

Brewgal: "WHAT?"

If this happened to me, I'd be issuing press releases to all my friends. Link here. Dad's listed first.

Actually, I admire his humility greatly. Way to go, Dad!

MDS and W

In my continuing efforts to be the tortoise of the blog world, I bring you photos of the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival, 2008.

Here we see a shot of the main drag with crowds. Every year it gets more and more crowded. And loud. Also, every year I am older. Hey you kids, get off my lawn!

Here are some sheep waiting to be judged.

Little Brewer #1 with her stuffed sheepdog, Oreo.

There were lots of Ravelers at the festival. Here's a shot of a bag I covet.

We went to the Rabbit Barn to get my Ravatar sticker. Unfortunately, this is as far as we could get into the barn. So.many.people.
But wait! There they are, the patron saints of Ravelry- Casey and Jess.
At this point the battery in my camera died so I cannot show you the photo of the UFO landing and its occupants passing out free copies of Knitting Without Tears. We stuck around for a few more minutes, but left after it became obvious we weren't going to get anywhere near Casey, Jess or the handout table.

The truth will out

Climate Findings Were Distorted, Probe Finds.
Appointees in NASA Press Office Blamed.

The only surprise here is that it has taken so long for this situation to be reported.
