Somewhere there is a picture. I was tired most of the time and hammered a lot of the rest of the time at Winnie Mae's Music Festival last year, but I swear that it exists. Or maybe it is just in my mind's eye, this image of two of the coolest people you ever want to meet sitting in lawn chairs at the gate of Winnie Mae's Music Festival on a cold May night.
They kept calling me and saying that they would be there and that they would show and that they would love to help. A lot of people did. Rose and Katie got there, asked what they could do. The sun was up when they came to me. I asked them to PLEASE just watch the gate for a little while and I would find someone to take over from them. They got a blanket, two lawn chairs and spent several HOURS down there.
They had the biggest smiles on their faces and the only thing they asked for in return was some food. They were awesome ant this was the epitome of what this is supposed to be about. A couple of months later, we got them tickets to the Avett Brothers for their hard work, but I still don't think that did what they did justice.
Somewhere there is a picture. I know I've seen it. It is of the two of them sitting in those chairs, flashing the "peace" sign or maybe it is just in my mind! (?) The one above is the best I could find and even it is pretty cool. There are moments in time that you can't get back. Still there is a feeling, a memory, and sometimes that is just as good.
Thanks Rose and Katie
