Saying Good-bye to Alchemy

Today is "Town Day" -- Frank likes routine and town day is a set pattern. Every Wed morning we head to town for breakfast at Perkins Restaurant, then on to town tasks: shopping, etc. One of today's tasks is to send little Alchemy on to her next adventure.

So she gets a quick tour of Bemidji.

Alchemy visits a Bemidji Landmark - The Paul and Babe Statues
Everyone who is anyone who is everyone, must get a photo with the waterfront statues of Paul Bunyan and Babe the Blue Ox.... can you find Alchemy in this photo? She is there, right in the center of things. :D

Alchemy chats with Pam, One of the owners of Grandma's Attic in Bemidji
A stop at Grandma's Attic to meet Pam, one of the owners. Check out the background too, our Vendor booth is "The Hatbox" seen in the background.

Then off to the Post Office
Alchemy at Bemidji Post Office, Lona helps Alchemy mail a card to Tori
Lona, one of Bemidji's great post office window team, helps Alchemy get a post card off to Tori. Tori is one of Melissa of HautTotes, lovely daughters and lots of HautTotes fans are sending cards to Tori to keep her engaged and distracted from pain when she undergoes major surgery on Mar 31. If you would like to participate- info at Postcards for Satori

After sending out her post card, Alchemy hopped into her cardboard traveling suite and is now on the way to her next destination.

We had a lovely time hosting Alchemy, and hope you enjoyed hearing and seeing a bit of her adventures here at Tranquility Pastures Farm.

Looks like a great send off. And, it looks like a lot of nice people in your town!

LOL "cardboard traveling suite"
I enjoyed seeing Grandma's Attic, I'd heard of it as one of your sales venues through your blog. Alchemy is taking some lovely memories with her!

What a busy visit! Alchemy is sure to have some fond memories of your lovely farm and MN to take with her as she travels to her next stop. The kids loved Paul and Babe :)

That is so neat that you posted about the postcards to Tori in this story. Jane, you are just a lovely person.

Foarte interesant subiectul postat de tine. M-am uitat pe blogul tau si imi place si am sa mai revin sa-l vizitez. O zi buna

I really enjoyed the tour of your farm with Alchemy <--a precious and curious critter/world traveler . I'm rather jealous that he got to see you and I have to wait over a month....(if I could only find a cardboard suite large enough for me, I would be mailing myself there now.)

a trip to town is always fun!

Jane, I so enjoyed reading about Alchemy's visit to your working farm - what an experience she had! Thanks for sharing :)

Thanks so very much everyone. We definitely had a good time. Ol Frank, even cracked a smile and I do believe even a chuckle escaped when he found Alchemy hugging his maple syrup jug. :{D
