New Diapers@Erika's Chiquis

I have about ten new diapers to post if my stupid computer would upload them but the stupid thing won't. The wire in the upload part(forgot the name) broke.
I'm so tired of computer now. One just died in June and now this one won't work to put new stuff up.
So up, I had to buy a new one. A notebook one for hubby so have to wait until I get a hold of him or I mean his computer and I will have new stuff up tonight or tomorrow.
Yippee

Topsham Fair Part 2

We ended up going to the fair again.
We ate again at Bob's Famous Fries and a Cajun Food Place.
Most of the animals were gone by a few were still there including a few goats, chickens , ducks , rabbits and piglets with their big mama pig. Also, a huge boar pig that weighed like 985lbs. He was a big boy.
I also took a picture of this incredibly awesome Halloween Quilt.
It was made by Jennifer Smith of Bowdoinham. Each monster was detailed:Dracula was in a velvet suit, Wolfman had fur, The mummy had some awesome looking old cotton fabric and the headless horseman had a detailed suit on. The witch was cool too. I love this quilt and I do have more pictures to post of it soon.
Thats it for the this fair this year.
See you next year.
