Mystriss played at a 60’s themed birthday party for a friend.
I was wondering how I would dress as a hippie when it occurred to me that I always dress like a hippie. So I hopped in the old Beetle and took off. It was a very long drive to Capron Illinois which is close to Rockford.
The Beetle was very popular and many people wanted their pictures taken with it.
Here’s Janis Joplin…oops I mean Angela Powell looking stunning in her psychedelic pink dress!
Before Mystriss the GRD band entertained us all with some good rockin’ blues.
When it was time for us to play I discovered I had a little problem with my amplifier. Namely that it didn’t work. At all…
Fortunately there was a person there who had a little Crate practice amp and was kind enough to let me use it. It wasn’t what I’m used to but it worked and it got me through the gig.
It was a fun party, the weather was great and I think Kari had a very happy 5oth birthday!
It was a beautiful sunny day.
When you’re in a boat a drink is no problem.
Dudley was reluctant to go in the water but his ball was too much to resist.
Later in the evening we saw an Eagle in a tree. The Eagle is always flying around Light Lake. He gets the Loons pretty riled up when he flies over them.
Dudley’s ball went under the bed. He crawled completely under and all around until he found it.
Dudley and I drove the old Beetle to Michigan. A trip that usually takes 6 hours took 10. Well, we had to avoid the fast highways and drove through a lot of little towns and stopped for breaks often too.
Dudley enjoyed watching me catch a fish. But he was really more interested in just laying in the boat and napping.
We went for a walk this morning.
