RUNNING THE RED DOG CANAL

Our friend John has a 10K run (I have been corrected: its TEN MILES not a 10K - sorry!) coming up next week so he asked us for a place to run. I thought yesterday's hike would have sufficed but noooooooo. So, up to the Red Dog canal we went. He ran. We walked. Omar did both including pestering anyone who came by. Thankfully, as a small dog people just look at him and go "Awwww! He's so cute!" and he says, "No, I am Fierce! Grrrrrrr!!!".

A lot of the canal is shady and some parts are hot and dry. The canal delivers non-potable water for irrigation etc. (though people do drink it). The canals were originally built to deliver water to the mines.








Afterward the menfolk went to the North Star Mine to ogle Pelton Wheels and I headed to Fabrics on Mill street because it was Sidewalk Sale Time!

I have to ask - what are thouse poufy looking things to the left? Pincushions? They look too large to be buttons, though I guess they could be polymer clay paperweights. Whatever they are - very nice! Did Mill St. have any of the bamboo on sale?

Those "poufy things" are indeed pincushions and one of them is for you. : - ) Choose your color! They were too cute to pass up and right at the check out counter.

I thought there was a lot less on sale this year. The bamboo fabric was still full price alas.
