Lemme Tell You 'Bout Our Weekend...

As promised, the tale of the weekend... and it was a doozy and a half.

We started off to camp out at a music festival for the weekend and Ronnie and I had already hauled out campers up there earlier in the week to get good spots. We'd invited lots of friends to come up and hang out in the campground, had lots of musicians to play with...etc. When we got there we found out that they were gonna charge each of us (and anyone that just wanted to hang with us in the campground) $15 bucks a pop each night PLUS camping charges. We sorta pulled up stakes and pulled out with a plan to head to Ronnie and Marybeth's cabin, set up, and have our own music festival.

It was the best decision we ever made.

Sally and I had the place to ourselves Thursday evening and most of Friday and we had an amazing time just enjoying each others company, picking a little, talking and pitchin' a little woo.

Friday night a pretty good crowd showed up, our friends Paul and his son Ben came down out of Iowa and spent the night. Ben's a guitar player and Paul plays banjo, dobro and guitar. David E. showed up with his sax cause you GOTTA have a sax player, lol and the usual crowd of Keota and a rotating hodgepodge of friends and family came and went all night until we finally gave it up about 2:30 AM.

It's Monday and my left hand fingers are STILL tender.


Anyhow, Sal and I got y'all a veritable buttload of pictures documenting the awesomeness of our weekend.










And then folks started showing up...


Hannah!




Randy and Martina. You're number one too Randy!





Bradon came dressed perfectly for the occasion.






Ben.





Bentley in her most awesome leopard print and rhinestone shades.







The chickens and a turtle showed up...









Sal, Mary and Patty ran away from home for a awhile on horseback.






And then it got serious...







































And just some random shots...


Ronnie and his daughter Natasha





Randy...





The girls...






Mary's totally bitchin' boots...






Ronnie and Marybeth





Louis pitched waaaaaaaaaaay down yonder.





And then we were all packed up and pulling out...







And finally 2 pics that you've been waiting for. Saturday morning came a little rough for some of us...


Sal had a little trouble dressing herself...






And me? I am the new posterchild for "do not do this". Yes, I felt as bad as I look...








Man that is the most pictures I EVER put in a post X3!






Rock on.

Looks like a good time was had by all! I think my invitation must have gotten lost in the mail, but I'd like one next time!

Gwen said...

Rock on, indeed. That looks like one hell of a time. I need to party with you people before this summer is over.

They say the true measure of a man can be told by the company he keeps.

You are one hell of a man!

When I first saw 'em, I thought those pics were a turtle sandwich.

And, by the looks of that last pic, the Rev. Freely (you know, I. P.) has a new traveling buddy.

Looks like y'all are still havin' too much fun - whatever that means!

"Tell me me-oh-me-oh-my, wasn't that a party!!!"

That "morning after" shot looks like pure contentment to me. :)
