I've really enjoyed hanging out at the festival by myself. The only time I wished I had a friend with me was when I walked by the giant jackalope. I really wanted my picture taken on it. Right before I left I handed my camera to a stranger and I'm glad I did.
Kim, I'm sorry - wore the Chucks to the festival and an assortment of other sensible shoes There were lots of young things in mini-skirts and cowboy boots. I'm old enough to go for comfort on the 90 degree days. Hell, I'm old enough that these Chucks were made in the USA.
After ACLF I found my way to the Continental Club and it turned out to be the highlight of my trip. I loved being there and felt at home sipping my whiskey and leaning against the wall watching the band and the dancers. Several of my guitar-playing friends love Redd Volkeart, and I can see why. Chatting with him turned in to a great brush of guitar fame. The guitar player from the Foo Fighters joined our conversation. Wheeeee!
