Granny Tells You What's Going On

Hi from Morganton, North Carolina

| July 2, 2009

We had a wonderful day yesterday at the Red, White and Bluegrass Festival here in Morganton. It was a big crowd for a Wednesday, and a super line-up. I especially enjoyed seeing Heather Berry, Junior Sisk, and the SteelDrivers; none of whom will be appearing at Michigan festivals we will attend this summer. Heather Berry […]

Dumplin Valley June Fest

| June 16, 2009

Papa and I made a quick trip to East Tennessee for the Dumplin’ Valley June Fest. We made the trip to see some bands that we won’t see around here this summer, including Balsam Range, Larry Cordle, the Gibson Brothers and the Rangers. Some of the bands which appeared that we will see other places […]

Friday, Already?

| May 8, 2009

I’ve been busy all week, but it is hard to tell what I have been doing. I do have a couple of lists, and many items are crossed off. We sent for our tickets to the Charlotte and Milan (Michigan) bluegrass festivals. These are the best line-ups for miles around, and I think it would […]

Spring might really be on the way! The Daffodils look pretty good. The bedroom is finished! I put all the stuff back, I know there is too much. It is all photos, old high school year books and other worthwhile things. Here is a view over the head of the bed. The wedding ring quilt […]

Almost On Our Way

| March 26, 2009

Papa and I are headed out to the Southern Ohio Indoor Music Festival tomorrow.  We’re looking forward to seeing a few friends, and some great music.  Be there if you can, it is a well run event, with some great bluegrass entertainers included on the schedule.  I’m especially looking forward to seeing Grasstown, the Scene, […]

Saturday is Right Around the Corner

| February 20, 2009

There are a bunch of options for bluegrass in the D this weekend.  After careful consideration, Papa and I have decieded to head down to the Huron Valley Eagles and see B0 and John and ’em.  We’ve seen Bo sing quite a bit, but this will be the first time we’ve seen this group.  Bo […]

A Taste of Spring

| February 4, 2009

It was a little warmer for a day or so there, but now it’s back to the deep freeze.  We are supposed to have a warm weekend, but it won’t help Papa and I any, we are headed north to M-in-L’s house.  She’s having a birthday, and we want to be there. I’m busy as […]

Back Home

| January 12, 2009

We’re here, and most of our things are put away. I am a nest maker, so it is important to me to have things in order. I do have one problem, our bikes got covered with salt and snow on the way home. Our daughters had thoughtfully shoveled, so we drove right in the garage, […]

Learn a Little

| January 5, 2009

After exploring new territory, ideas or general “stuff” Papa and I always say, one to another, “You can quit now, you’ve learned something today.” We went a little over the top today, and learned quite a bit. We visited the 4-H Tidelands Nature Center, here on Jekyll Island, Georgia. There are exhibits of local marine […]

Lazy Daze

| December 31, 2008

Papa and I have vacationed to the max since we arrived here on Jekyll Island, Georgia on Monday. If you follow the link, you will see the Bluegrass Festival begins tomorrow. We’ll be there, all three days. We’re staying here on the island until Tuesday, continuing our vacation. We’ve explored the beaches, with long walks […]
