65 Years (part I): Photos For My Blob

Happy 65 years of marriage to my grandparents, Bob and Sally Harper. For their celebration, they took 14 of us to Washington State. The first four days we spent hiking around Mount Rainer, and the last three days we explored Lopez Island, in the San Juan Islands.

The whole journey was amazing. Besides being in love with all the wildflowers on Rainer and all the wildlife around the Islands, I was also intrigued by the small town communities we invaded. We went from small mountain town to small island town… both very fascinating communities. I wish I could have stayed a little longer to get under the skin a little more, but even from the outside it was interesting to observe. It just may be a project for another day.

In the meantime, here is a more personal documentary… this is what 65 years of marriage and a strong commitment to family can give you…

While I was taking a photo of my grandparents playing cards, my grandmother asked me, “Are you going to put this on your blob?” She wasn’t excited about me taking the photo at the time, but she reluctantly allowed me to anyway, because she figured her friends probably don’t read blobs anyway.

The Honeymoon is Over…

The honeymoon is over…  and it is back to work for Arann and the Green String Farm Band.

They are getting serious about music and that means… more songs about chickens, a blog, a website, hot sauce, business cards, t-shirts, sweatshirts and very exciting secret musical instruments.

Want to know what the secret musical instrument will be?

Well, I can’t give the secret musical instrument away here… but it is going to be awesome!

Stay tuned to find out the secret very soon.

(Digital photos versus Rolleiflex photos once again. My conclusion between the two: for musical gigs, they both have their benefits.)
