The concert was just awesome. The weather was beautiful and it was

a great evening with great music under the night sky. I have never

seen so many different lawn chairs, umbrellas, tents, interesting

clothing on interesting people (laughing) and lots of good

food and every color of cooler you can think of! They did not

have a final count, but were reporting the largest crowd ever at

this festival - and well over 10,000 attended. We were one hour and

15 minutes getting back to our car - as we rode the shuttle bus

to the festival grounds - and not bad for that many people. I

would do it all over again. Thanks for looking.


Thank you all for your patience. My page is still not as I want it,

but I am working on a few things with it. Thank you all for

joining me today.  Join me again tomorrow and please do share me with

friends and family - and groups. Be safe and

always aware of everything and everyone around

you. Remember it is the little things that matter - and

that each day is a gift. Just simply open them.

Have a great Tuesday!
