About a day

I was out of town recently for a little refueling. A transfusion of the bluegrass blood if you will.


That's my bandmate Jim Helmetzi on the left, dear friend and fellow Kentuckian Phillip Hartsock in the middle, and bluegrass recording artist, Merrell Boggs on the right. (Merrell and Phillip are second cousins. Phillip invited me and Jim to join him for the visit for obvious reasons.)

And of course there was a backyard garden.

With hardscape features.

Ah, my blood feels a bit blue after hearing that wonderful jam session! I thought you folks in KY went barefoot. Whats with the socks on Phillip? Now remember, I am from TN so I can ask these kinds of questions. I have the same doggie holding lantern in my garden! Good choice...

Those tomatoes are way bigger than mine. Looking good! Love that glass ball.

Good Stuff!!

Sounds like you had a great time. I wish I were musically inclined. And who doesn't love a garden?

Do you suppose that gazing ball is attached to that concrete support with "paist" or is it just sitting there? "_

Skeeter: Thanks for listening. Bein from Tennessee, I bet you clog too.

Ms. Marnie: They're way bigger than mine too!

Mr. Anonymous: Maybe I should post something about you more often. Maybe you'd stop by on a regular basis then. ;~P

Ms. Terri: We had a wonderful time! The gazing ball is not attached, it's just sitting there. I wondered the same thing after I took the picture and investigated further.

Love your pair of "foo doggies". Garden art that arises from true love is never goofy. I shoulda known you were into bluegrass music. Good stuff.

I'm always amazed when a guitarist can keep up with a banjo, let alone two of them! Wonderful jam session. You guys could knock the socks off any competition. Great looking garden spot, artifacts and all. (My WV is "addlepin." Gotta look that up. Maybe it keeps the old brain intact.)
