The season is underway. So many people has commented on the picture with the bagpipes. My twin? Cuz its not me. But if I were to wear full regalia, this would be what I would look like...sans the pipes, o' course.
The guy with the stein waving in the air is me - taken from the local newspaper while attending a German Bier fest. (when in Germany, do as the Germans do).
This years excursions appear few from where I sit right now. But good news! I am picking up several truck loads of Hemlock, all dried and seasoned. And you know what that means. My famous back yard fires. Good food, conversation, music...a crackling fire. I recently met an older gentleman who used to play with Johnny Cash and several others throughout his career. He loves to socialize and whip out his guitar. He will come and play a wide range of tunes, both electric and non, just for the opportunity to play. He would join in with the good eats and etc....and of course, we'd pass the hat. Sounds like fun.
I have an old fiddler champion who has offered to do the same. That would be pretty cool too but he loves the Lady. I don't worry about the Lady, I worry about him. Did I tell you that the Lady is an exceptional bones player? http://www.rhythmbones.com/
I keep telling the Lady, that if I win the big ticket (yeah, I play a few times a year) I'm gonna throw a big party and invite my blogger friends. Thats a visual! I can't name the names that come to mind because I don't want anyone to feel left out....But, Damn! Rubik, rowhouse, 91 ghost, cape & devile, and EEE GOD, transience, and wonderland (if I can find her) and rowan...we'd really mix it up with Zeteticus and punk rock mommy and butterfly...Man, that would be cool..................
