Summer Time Festival Time!

Festival Time!

Ah, it’s been a great Summer. Besides teaching my social media and email marketing and event marketing classes, I’ve taken some time to visit the Oregon Country Faire and the NorthWest String Summit (Strummit).  What a fine way to spend a Summer – music festivals.

Oregon Country Fair this year was marvelous – it’s a great mixture of friends, new friends, and lots of costumes, and great food and music. I was part of booth L48 – Wileyware!  And, walking around the pathways at night, so so sweet. Then, there’s the Ritz, a huge shower and sauna complex – I like to visit that daily. I had a great time at Fair this year and even got to march in a black & white parade. Fun city!

The following weekend I attended the Northwest String Summit @ Horning’s Hideout. A venue very close to home – spent the weekend playing guitar with my friend, Steve Bennett, and then hearing folks like Danny Barnes, Darryl Anger, Todd Law and the Yonder Mountain String Band and Leftover Salmon – all so good. It was a very sweet time and I definitely will be going back again next year.

Next up I have a little camping coming and then the Beloved Festival – one of my favorite all-time festivals – full of music, great food and lots of deep connections with old friends.  Then, there’s Burning Man.  And taking care of the garden. And the world.  Life is good!

I just learned yesterday that my friend Brenda, who’s tried out Farm My Yard (her lawn has been removed and now has been planted) – will sell her yard’s produce to a local convenience store – talk about making a papa proud!  Farm My Yard – I shall make signs one of these days and get that puppy going, I promise.

I hope you’re having a great Summer. Here are some sweet photos that a friend took at Strummit). Take care! Albert
