Taking pictures is nice for more than just the memories, it also gets people to put their arms around each other and smile. I rode up to T-burg with Connie and Andy several times during set-up for the festival so why not Thursday too? Complete with a stop at Taughannock Trickle. As always, Bubba George opened things up on the Infield Stage and all of a sudden it feels like I'm at some kind of reunion. Well, I am. A quick glance around reveals friends, expected and unexpected, from all over the northeast standing all around me. I was quite surprised to see Julie and Steve, owners of Blue Heron Festival, they came for the day to celebrate Julie's birthday and visit family.
A few hours later Gail had arrived and wouldn't you know it, she and Annie were wearing the same outfits.
