A fun time was had by all

We'll be home soon from the Johnson City Folk Festival. It was a fun trip, but there's nothing like
sleeping in your own bed.
What I enjoyed about this festival was that it was like a walk back in the past. The fields surrounding the barns and other structures had antique tractor parts, tools and things that helped farmers have a chance at making a living.
Even modern farming is backbreaking work. Just read a few posts on my blog buddy Julia's site and see for yourself.
But back before tools evolved, a lot of the work had to be done by hand.
Not only were there tame fawns walking around greeting festival goers, but vivid blue, green, and black peacocks lazed around observing the festivities. One peacock looked like an albino. Beautiful birds with the grace of ballet dancers.
This ambiance made it seem like the music being performed was from another time.
I hope you all have a great Sunday.


  1. Sounds wonderful!

  2. It sounds like you had a wonderful time... :)

  3. I saw your pictures on Facebook, you had lots of fun for sure

  4. An albino peacock?? Well that's super cool-sounding!!

  5. How fortunate that you could go back in time in a real way. Things moves too fast for me and I would love to just step back a few decades and slow things down. Great picture of you two.

    Thanks Rick for mentioning my blog on you post. I thought that things would go smoother this weekend but it hasn't. I now have three sick calves to care for, two are responding well to antibiotic but the other is not and I got another calf born this morning.

    Have a great week you two.
