It's here! It's Folk Festival!
Eva took this picture at last year's folk fest. Isn't it a lovely setting? And some of the locations for stages are even nicer.
I went to a record tent meeting on the festival grounds tonight, met a few nice people, learned that it gets to be about 45C in the tent at times, and that I am really glad I am going to be doing setup tomorrow morning and working the floor the rest of the weekend and not cashiering. That shit is scary, man.
Probably the most important thing I learned at the meeting tonight was "Code 8". That's the code you use over the radio when you need someone to come and buy you an ice cream. I plan to use that one a lot. I may even need a larger festival shirt by the end of the weekend.
So I won't have be home a whole lot of the next few days and I apologize for not visiting, but I will return and I will bring reports from the festival with me, this year from a newbie volunteer's perspective. Look for the first installment on Friday morning.
It's just as well that I won't be home much, as my laptop is spending some time in the shop, having an enema or whatever it is they do to get rid of the virus or whatever that it picked up. For an extra hundred or so bucks they promised to save all my data. Sure am glad I have that extended warranty. Too bad it doesn't cover virus removal.
Anyhoo, wish me luck hustling cds, and I will try my best to visit you all and to bring you the highlights.
