Fun Day

It was rainy and blustery all day yesterday. We decided to drive up the Huntsville and spend the night so that we could be in Lynchburg without too much trouble this morning.
We headed out before dark and still traces of rain sprinkling the windshield but by the time we made it up to the Tennessee River, the clouds were beginning to part and the sun showing through the clouds was an incredible golden color. The trees are just beginning to turn and that light shining on those trees was stunning.
This morning as we ate breakfast, it was totally overcast and looked as though the day would be a repeat of yesterday but by the time we headed north they began to disburse and the sun came out strong.
We went on stage at 10 a.m. and Lynchburg was buzzing. There must have been ten thousand people walking through the square sampling the BBQ and all the other goodies that were on the grills.
The crowd grew steadily all afternoon and I have no idea how many were there. It was wall to wall people.
After our set we walked up to the Jack Daniels welcome center and had some lemonade and chili with the Tennessee Squires and afterward we headed back to the square to look for lunch.
Our host Paul Jones, who is "The Old Time Radio Show" bought two racks of ribs.
We found a place in the shade and ate the ribs with our fingers. I was in heaven.
The folks in Lynchburg know how to put on a shindig. We felt blessed to be a part of it.
