Brickspo, ice cream, and a party

Drove to Brickspo in Moose Jaw this afternoon. Lots of cool stuff there again this year. The heat of the day sort of got to me by the end, even though the place wasn't as crowded.

Following Brickspo we headed to the Moose Jaw Art Gallery where I really enjoyed the paintings by Grant McConnell. He has been inserting the characters from Diego Velazquez's painting "Las Meninas" into different backgrounds with many others layers of paint. The mixture of formal paint characteristics and postmodernism were very amusing and entertaining. Beautiful work.
 My head cleared with a great cherry pina colota milkshake at a joint we discovered in downtown Moose Jaw called the Deja Vu Cafe. They have a hundred flavours of milkshakes and soft serve and almost as many chicken wing flavours.
 We attended a lively birthday party for Kimberly Fyfe. Many great conversations.
