Blogstock '08 Re-Visited...again
I had asked my brother to be in charge of insect control for Blogstock. On the morning of July 3rd whilst Ralph and I were fighting with what would turn out to be the float, my brother dropped by and sprayed the perimeter of the event area thereby taking care of the crawling and flitting creatures. I don't recall anyone swatting at a skeeter during the event. When he was finished with a ten acre perimeter, Desiree ran into the shed and excitedly pronounced, "That was absolutely the COOLEST thing I've ever seen." She got over it.
I told you none of this was in order. After we had completed decorating the float, (Decorating a float or a Christmas Tree are very similar, you never know if you're done.)
We proceeded to a local cafe/bar/karaoke joint.
The middle photo is of Jim and Mrs Jim. It looks like water they are drinking. Maybe, maybe not. Terry from the Midwest Producer (editor) and I are talking about the sanity of all of this. Terry and I later got coerced into singing a song. (I'll go to my grave. by the Statler Brothers) I will get even with whom ever did that.
Bottom photo: Rachel on left who is hiding Char, my MIL in red, Nora, Desiree, and Jerry and Marilyn with her back to the camera. If you expand the picture you will see I either caught Jerry in the middle of blinking his eyes, OR it was during that point when he was trying to pick a fight with Jim. Thank heavens it never got past the wrestling around on the floor and kicking and screaming stage.
