QC 2010 wind up

This is my last post about Quilt Canada- no doubt you're getting tired of hearing about it by now. I have many more pics of quilts from the Shows, but do not have titles of the pieces or names of the makers, so it is not fair to put them on here without proper "acknowledgement". So I'll just wind up by showing you a few fun pics from the final night at the Closing Banquet.
The Banquet had a western theme and Karen Henry and I sat with some friends of hers from Moose Jaw SK. The evening started off with some entertainment by "Guns of the Golden West". They taught us all the three ways to shoot a pistol and then did some demos on fast an' fancy shootin'. They were pretty impressive - I would not have wanted to be up agin any of 'em in a draw... Since they were "willin' to pose fer pitchers with any pretty young things", Karen and I decided we should take advantage, so here we are(above)!! The other entertainment was also excellent, as was the meal- yummy Alberta beef - a delicious tenderloin, cooked perfectly and served pipin' hot with a Bourbon molasses sauce....
We also could not resist seeing how we would look as Cowgirls - what do you think?
Next, for all you gardeners, I'll share some photos from Minter Gardens in Chilliwack BC where I spent a few days before heading to Calgary.
Cowboy Advice:
~ Always drink upstream from the herd.
~ Don't never interfere with somethin' that ain't botherin' you none.
~ Don't squat with yer spurs on.
~ If it don't seem like it's worth the effort, it probably ain't.
~ If you find yerself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin'.
~ Never follow good whiskey with water, unless you're out of good whiskey.
~ Never smack a man who's chewin' tobacco.

You and Karen make dashing cowboy girls! Love the picture. I love the Cowboy Advice too. Some great words of inspiration. Can't wait to see the pictures of the flowers.
