Yesterday was quite a day! I went in to work for a few hours, then met up with Matt, Peter, Allison and her friend Emily, Amber, Kelli, and Kyle to go to Cincinnati for the Celtic World Festival. We had a caravan of three cars, since Amber needed to leave earlier than we did. We got up to Cinci without much incident, and had a really great time. It was especially nice because that particular mix of folks had never really hung out together out of their respective contexts of VBCC or Common Grounds. Of course there was Harp, lots of music and shopping, and of course, an extended visit to the Sneaky Peat booth. The fellow behind the booth, whom I have begun to think of as "Sneaky Peat" himself, was very accomodating, as usual, in giving out generous samples of BBQ made with the Sneaky Peat peat bricks. The samples, of course, were accompanied by a baptismal squirt of Irish whiskey into the mouth of the recipient. You can see photos of this, and the rest of the festival, at my fotopage. After we'd had all we (and our wallets) could handle of shopping, we had a little "Irish" food, then headed over to listen to the band that Matt wanted to make sure he saw, Roger Drawdy and the Firestarters. They were just fantastic! There are also several photos of them on the fotopage. They just played full-out the whole time. Alan might be interested to hear that the lead singer, Roger Drawdy, is a Cork boy, and as such, sang a couple of what he called "rebel songs", songs that told of times the IRA and their ilk had routed the British in battle. All in all it was a great afternoon and evening. Everyone appeared to have a really great time.
I was thinking of going to Harrodsburg today with Kyle and Matt and Joseph and some others, but I am supposed to be studying right now. Hopefully we'll all be able to get together later. I guess since I'm supposed to be studying, I'd best get to it. Later!
Hi, I'm Debi. Once in a while I have a thought and I like to write it down before it goes away. This is where I write it.
