At last - there is some rain here. The weather is absolutely crazy - Battelford had a wicked storm two nights ago and there wasn't a drop of rain at the farm. Looks like we have a nice steady rain which is just what they need. Let's hope they get enough to do some good for the crops.
Dad and I went to the picnic at the new building they will be moving into in November. We had a great catered lunch and then into the building for a tour. Very exciting!!!!!!

|The view from their balcony - yes that is Tim's in the distance on the left|

Dad was chatting to the foreman and well you couldn't help but notice this guy. I snapped this picture because no one would believe me. It is NOT a trick photo - they are standing side by side.
|Dad and the giant!|
While driving around, we saw this little vehicle. Is is a bike, is it a car????

|Just in case you didn't figure it out!|
We ran into the guy at Tim's. He went through the drive thru and then parked in the parking lot. I am surprised that people didn't have accidents as they drove past. Every one's head swiveled to have a better look.
It is actually an electric bike. The owner of this particular bike is visually impaired and unable to drive a car, but he is allowed to ride this bike. Let's just say that he has already been pulled over by the RCMP as they had never seen one before. He is allowed to use pedal power ONLY - no motor because of his eye sight although I am not sure what difference that makes.
Check out this video to see more. Yes - it comes in orange. They are not cheap, but what a cool idea if you don't want to ride a bike out in the elements. If it wasn't so pricey (this guy paid $11 K for his with all the bells and whistles). But if it is your only vehicle - what a bargain and he gains mobility to boot. But think - no gas, no insurance, minimal maintenance!!!!! Might be a bit hard to get out of the city!!!!
I snapped these two pictures on my way to the farm a couple of nights ago. I saw a couple of hot air balloons.

That's it for today. I am half way around the last quilt getting that binding on. I am certain that I will finish by tomorrow. Two labels are on and we start delivering this afternoon!!!!!
On that note - I am out of here!
Have a great day!!!!!!!!!!
