We are still trying to recover from Happyland Music Fest last weekend. I did get my kitchen clean and I moved all the stuff left in my family room to the exercise room and closed the door…which is my latest excuse for not getting on the treadmill. The house is basically back to livable standards. On Wednesday David had to make a trip to the city so he took a truck load of glass to the recycling center up there (we still don’t have glass recycling here in town). Yes, I said a truck load. The incredible thing is that there is still more that wouldn’t fit in his pickup. Most of the trash has been picked up and disposed of although I’m still picking up bits of streamers, bottle caps and cigarette butts each time I go outside. And the back patio is still a bit of a disaster zone. But all in all, we emerged from our annual crazy fest unscathed. Nothing was broken and no one died or even had to go to the E.R. so I consider that a win.
Chris had asked me to try to take a lot of pictures during the weekend and I did. So many, in fact, that I’m still trying to get them sorted. I’ll be sharing some of them over the next few days, a few at a time so as not to overwhelm those (like me) with slow internet service. So here we go:
Cas Simmons, one of our attendees, designed this gorgeous poster. Click on it to see the list of musicians and bands which played during the weekend. These posters (and t-shirts) will be available for purchase soon.
Casey Howard, Anne Capshaw and David Winchester
Shiloh had a blast! So many people to love on him.
Some of the decorations (those white wire things are lights)
Everybody is happy at Happyland.
Nice wig, Aaron.
Yes, that’s my boy.
Okay, enough for now. In a future post I’ll share some of the great comments being left on our Facebook group page, “Happyland Survivors Club”. It does my heart good to know that everyone had such a good time and that new friendships were formed as a result of this event.
AND…I’ve been reading something which has given me a great idea for a blog post series so stay tuned for that.
