This year’s line-up got off to a wonderful start on Friday, September 18th with Cody Shuler and Pine Mountain Railroad. We had a nice time, and we glad we didn’t forget to go. Jerry Cole knocked ‘em dead. I’m not sure there were too many in the audience who had seem him sing before the […]

The City of Auburn Hills sponsors a bluegrass show the Saturday after Labor Day each year. We have attended for the past several years, and enjoyed each one.

Happy Birthday

| August 24, 2009

Happy birthday to Papa today. We had a nice calm weekend, in contrast to the exciting time we had on his birthday last year. We were both pretty tired yesterday afternoon, after dealing with another batch of tomatoes. We have canned 72 quarts of tomato juice so far this year. We are past the peak […]

Morning Glories

| August 12, 2009

I said I would take yet another photo of my morning glories and I remembered! But the picture does not show how glorious they really are. Here is another: They are all colors, and there are tons of flowers, which come out when it is still dark, and bloom most of the day. They do […]

New Trellis

| July 22, 2009

You might remember that Papa built me a new trellis this year. I really needed it, after the collapse of 2008. I have been watching the ascent of the Morning Glories all summer, they seem to grow a few inches each day. Yesterday, it looked like this:   The most interesting thing to me is […]

Photos From Red, White and Bluegrass

| July 8, 2009

Papa’s photos from the Red White and Bluegrass Festival in Morganton, North Carolina are posted here. We were seated off to the side, so Papa walked up front with each band change to get the best shots he could. The lighting was a problem throughout the show. The stage had no back or sides, and […]

The Old Spinning Wheel

| June 29, 2009

We were over at the Charlotte (Michigan) bluegrass festival last weekend.  We had fun.  Papa took pictures, and a little video.  This one is of our friends playing the song we really like to hear. Red, on banjo,  was happier with this version, he said he “Didn’t miss that one part.”.  Huh?  I wouldn’t have […]

Papa and I ventured a little south of here to see Russell Moore and IIIrd Tyme out at the Glass City Opry Tuesday. My favorite of Papa’s photos happens to be of Edgar. You all know he’s a Daddy (again), don’t you? The guys did their usual great show, and we are now proud owners […]

Short Week

| May 26, 2009

I’ve started a very short week. I spent a lot of the morning on the garden and flower beds. Of course, plenty of work remains. A lot of my summer will be spent in the gardens. Papa and I mowed the grass as soon as we got home yesterday. I got a lot of thinking […]
