Crazy happenings in my cyber world, and I will probably never understand them, so why try? I noticed this morning that my Count down timer on the sidebar had disappeared. Looked at the administration page and could not find it in the plugins. DRAT! So I downloaded, reinstalled and activated it. Funny, all my events were still there, even though the plugin directory had been missing. It must save the events somewhere in the MySQL database. In spite of my annoyance, I did learn something from that.
I am preparing for a trip out to New York. It is dual purpose trip, I will be seeing my cousins, and doing a bunch of genealogical research. Papa is not making this trip with me, for a couple of reasons. I will miss him, we do not spend much time apart. I plan will sleep in a little, take a few pictures, hit all the libraries, cemeteries and courthouses that I can, and enjoy the journey. I did find a couple of bluegrass concerts in the area, not sure if I will be taking advantage of those or not.
I have a place to stay, people to see, a packed suitcase, computer bag, and other essentials ready to go. I am grateful that Papa and our daughters will be here to hold down the fort. I am a little apprehensive, since they may find that I really don’t do much around the house. We shall see.
In the meantime, head over to one of two fine bluegrass events scheduled for this weekend. We will be attending an appearance by J.D. Crowe at the Waterford campus of Oakland County Community College on Friday night. I am excited since this will be the first time we have seen our friend, Matt, with the group.
The West Michigan Bluegrass Music Association is hosting MayFest Friday, Saturday and Sunday at the fairgrounds in Lowell, Michigan. The Chapmans are headlining the show. You can find out more on the West Michigan site.
