Well I made it! and had a wonderful weekend. Of course we ate wayyyy (or is that weighhhhh) too much; laughed ourselves silly (sides are still aching) and did a LOT of hooking. We even had company – lovely little mother grouse with 9 chicklets. As we watched from the upper stairwell window she scurried from under the cottage into the woods and plunked herself down and called all the little chicklets to her. They ALL came – what obedient little children! – and crawled under her until she was double her size. It was so adorable! Then 2 of the girls went kayaking and met up with a honkin big snapping turtle. Just a wonderful weekend of fun and friendship. So here are a few pix of what was going on – well hookingwise anyway because! as little French Louise says – what happens at Lac Sam – STAYS at Lac Sam!…
