Is It Really August Already???

Folks keep telling me that the days go by faster as you get older.... well, I certainly believe that these days! ! !

Tomorrow is August 1, a civic holiday here in Canada, and hopefully a busy one for us in the gallery.
So far this season has been a good one, despite the hot and humid days. Fortunately we have air conditioning, so our customers also got a little relief from the blistering heat.

We have a superb line up of activities and events for August; we sure hope you will be able to join us for them all, or even for just one or two....
