9/21/08---A lazy day. We drove into St. Charles for lunch. The day was clear and the temperature comfortable in the low 80’s. It made walking up & down main very enjoyable as we viewed the work of various artists. There were numerous tents set up with displays for the Mosaic Festival of the Arts. One of the most interesting were the birds & other animals made out of old shovels, rebar, augers coiled springs, bicycle seats and anything else the artist could salvage from a junk pile. Quite the imagination!
