was this last weekend. I went with Tom and Bluesie the Floozie (our 1976 Dodge camper van).
We drove over on Thursday morning after fellow Winthropers Anne and Jeff stopped by Wednesday and we caravanned over. We set up camp and checked out the other campsites. Friday morning we got the news from our farmsitter that a mink had killed 5 of our chickens and one duck. Tom called his son who came over and killed the mink that afternoon.
After this we were able to enjoy air conditioning at Three Fingered Jack’s in the air conditioning. That evening we set up our chairs in front of the stage and went to the beer garden for music. The next morning the festival was underway in earnest. Warning the videos are amateur but do reflect the performances.
Sunday started with a great performance.
One of my favorite performers Duffy Bishop sang next. I got the rare opportunity to hear her belt out a song after her mike went dead (sorry about my commentary).
It was hot for us and the audio guys as well.
The Paladins were great
and Too Slim was there, of course.
And he had guests.
There was a pretty sunset as we headed to the beer garden
We drove back Monday morning to face farm chores including putting up 2.5 tons of hay.
