    Fantastic. First timer at this event. Good, Better and Best music paired with wine/beer and fair food. Will definitely go again next year - earlier!

    Thank you so much for hostessing the MU table in the wine garden, Pam. It was so hot and you were there a long time! You did such a great job communicating details and being friendly to everyone. I really appreciate you and enjoy your company! :)

    Hot, hot, hot! The best part for me was seeing a little old man pushing his walker (the kind with the seat attached) his oxygen tank in tow enjoying the day. Then to make it even better within a few minutes another little old man hunched over his cane went by heading for the wine garden. They were both on their own and I couldn't help but think how great that they were still out and about doing things. I worried about them in the heat though. As for me I am sure I have a thousand more freckles (thank you Irish grandmother for this pale skin) LOL On the plus side if the freckles start to connect it might look like a tan? No sun for me tomorrow that's for sure!!!!!

    FYI, for any newbies to this area and have not attended before, parking will be problematic. Expect long traffic lines and delays. Pearl Street will become a parking lot. One of our members, the beautiful Ms Elena, has graciously offered an area near her house or on her property (sorry Elena, couldn't remember which one) for parking. She is damn near 100 m away (that would be 110 yards :)) from the entrance to the park. Elena, give us the deets on how to get there, or pass that to the Event Host, the lovely Ms Pam R. As fate would have it, there are two events happening on this day. Not sure which I will get to, one or both or none. In any case, for those of you who know where I live you are welcome to park at my house. If you park in the drive way, you need to somehow leave a set of keys so I can get back. Poobah
