Orange Harmony In Main Squeeze

How inviting on a chilly night to be inside a cozy local cafe (okay technically it's a juice bar), and Art Stroll Night I spent some time in Main Squeeze with local Artist Claire B 
Main Squeeze is also exhibiting other artists and we had fun checking out the shelves filled with beautiful crafts and artwork.
It's so cozy in there, that even on a chilly day who can resist one of their shakes? Okay I can't lol! If you can resist their shakes,  can you really resist some GREAT Christmas Shopping? Original Arts and Crafts at great prices are to be had in there.
If you use FaceBook you can check in with Main Squeeze for updates on menu's, artwork, and  events etc.

Happy Trails

The sun was shining and I decided to ride my bike down to Village Artisans and have lunch with Nancy Mellon while she was gallery sitting.
No, she didn't look spotty like her painting in the VA's Dare 2b Square Exhibit
On the way down to the trail I spotted the new 
Litter Bins on Dayton Street and they made me smile because they look like repurposed daleks (best way to treat those evil mutants I say).
Next stop was the bike trail towards Springfield, down Ellis Pond Spur, along Polecat Road and back home. GLORIOUS!

Got to test my AirZound the other day when I came across several deer on the trail and boy did it work. My biggest concern on the trail are dogs and from what I've read and seen online the AirZound is effective.  Here is an example I found on YouTube.
