I can't seem to get back into my blogging routine.
These 105 HOT DAYS just sap energy and if
that's not hot enough, seems I have had
one long HOT FLASH all day.

But stop whinin' girlie and get on with
your BLUE MONDAY post.
Three moments from my recent trip
to Weiser, Idaho for the Fiddle Festival.

Our son did Texas proud...Dixie, the devil may have
been in Georgia but 74 bow yeilding fiddlers
showed up and that was just in Samuel's
Jr. division--13 to 17 year olds.
Almost that many in each of the Jr.Jr.s and adult divisions.

His group all played, which took most of the day
and then came the first cut, down to only 15.
He made it! And even though he didn't make the
next cut we were grateful to have made it that far.
He played two wonderful sets and we
were very proud of him.


Weiser ruins and roses.

The whole town was in full bloom for the festival.
Wish I could share the aroma, it was wonderful.
Good thing I wore a blue shirt that day ;-)

Now back to SmilingSally for more...
