It's also a band, a band that I even play in. Last Saturday we attracted a whopping 30 people for ribs, lemonade, homemade beer, and our music under the warm farm sky near Orting. It was an end-of-the-year party for folks running a farm that produces fruits and veggies- all of which are distributed directly to local food banks and hot meal programs. Nice folks. :)
You don't need a lot of people to have a good time!
The best time was clearly being had by Ellie, the dog. If you had barbeque ribs you were her best friend. When the music began she went into happy mode prancing and wagging. I thought she loved us until I realized it was her leash in her mouth which she was bringing to everyone to take her for a walk....Get me outta here!
Meandering out into the field we smiled with the sunflowers for our annual band photo. Not that we necessarily think of ourselves as a sunny band, but it was either that or stand by the port-a-potty. Come to think of it maybe that would have been a better fit :)
Since this is my photo blog I'll mention that I put the camera on a tripod and ran into the picture. In hindsight, if I did it again I'd raise my tripod higher so our heads don't compete with the trees and sky.
You can also see photos my wife took of us at www.thedisclaimers.net
disclaimer- no one in the band is considered armed or dangerous.....damn, maybe standing with sunflowers is appropriate.
