I have to keep up with Barbara, who posted a very nice pictue of the family eating at Rachel's families cabin. I don't have a picture of everyone, but here is a representative of each family, Kate Brady, Brittany Bush and Barbara Stevens. They're all wrapped in blankets, sweaters and the warmth of family love. They were carrying on a rousing conversation. I started feeling left out, so I got up and took this picture. We had a little adventure driving to the cabin which involved something like Ed being right and Judy being wrong (with the directions). I wondered when the Stevens arrived even later than we did if their adventure was similar. No to put the blame on anyone, but David's instructions to drive past the Eldora ski area caused a little of the confusion. Either way, we got to see some lovely mountains and lots of beautiful, green pine trees on the way up.
Tonight we have a Whistling Prairie gig. We're doing Lonesome Pine, which we did two years ago with Barbara and Abby. We'll think of you as we sing it in really loud voices--Crystal's favorite vocal style. We're also doing Chattanooga Choo Choo, which Brittany told us Ed Melzer loved to sing when she played it. We're doing this with only about 3 practices. It's risky business!
