Adelphi Friends Meeting’s Strawberry Festival

AFM's Strawberry Fest Facebook event image.  Probably from last year.  The tent that sold boxes and cases of strawberries looked much like this today, including the cute flag; staffed by different people, though.

We considered the Capital Pride parade today, but had some issues, and got a tip about the Adelphi Friends Meeting’s Strawberry Festival. And we had a great time, including seeing the fellow TransFaith family that invited us, and a friend from the fat community and their friend.

And we found a shirt like Cam's on "Modern Family" for Julia! Which I’ve been wanting to get her since I first saw him; his are custom, this is a Brooklyn Xpress (3X). And a sterling silver vase brooch like David Suchet's Hercule Poirot (Agatha Christie) for me, which I’ve wanted since I saw him; can also be a mezuzah and more. We also found a silk necktie in black-and-white houndstooth for J, and a great purple-and-gray sweater and white-and-black short-sleeve blouse for me.

And we had a 'The Works' – strawberries, pound cake, ice cream, whipped cream, chocolate. And we took home a box of strawberries.

And ALL OF THE ABOVE for $18 -- yes, chai, “alive / living”!
