If you visit that link, you'll also see some awesome Fall Foliage from PA and NY - we had a five hour drive so I had lots of time to snap away! There's a pic of the stream out back of UJB's Camp in there too.
We had an AMAZING time! We showed up late Friday night (way later than we thought due to mekidsdad working later than planned) but were welcomed with open arms, even though we weren't driving the pregnant rollerskate! Zurf was also delayed along the way, but he had a slightly different excuse. The music was FANTASTIC and, as tends to happen at Chordie Gatherings, the good times were plenty! Naomi (Bill's lady) had plenty of interesting stories and just REAL LIFE wisdom; I didn't tire of chatting with her all weekend. It was nice to no be the only gal around, although the other's didn't play guitar, they all sang along. Lorraine really completed the group with her percussion, and mekidskid had a blast helping. I'm sorry to say, I only grabbed a couple quick videos. I was having too much fun to hold the camera all night. I think Doug may have gotten some good ones though! We learned that cast iron pans can crack. Joe and Bill are proof that men can cook (OMG - the pork was to die for) - and never believe someone that says they'll only eat ONE cookie! I joked quite a bit about the "Dead being Dead" but I think this weekend I was proven wrong... they do in fact live on... in South PA! The three tenors - my word do they play well together! Each one compliments the other, but as it turns out they can each hold their own as well. Pete was so soft spoken and played so quietly, but WOW. And then Scott with his sparkly blue machine, was a mad man with his fills and solos. While Mekidsdad had a blast playing along with them, he had a hard time "following that" - I got my orders for the next Jam as well, I'm not allowed to sit next to Zurf anymore. Ha Ha! His singing is coming along great, and it was so good to see him again! It's been too long, and we DO need to do more Skype Jams! Met some really great people that I won't soon forget. AGAIN - Thank you soooo much to Joe for inviting us, making room for the family, and just for a great weekend! Mekidskid had a fantastic time. Mekidsdad is ready to help out in the Spring if you'd like the help. I'll bring along blondie next time too!
UJB's buddy Scott
UJB's buddy Doug (who said he's going to learn to play guitar starting "tomorrow" - I'm going to hold him to that and grill him when I see him again!)
UJB's Buddy Mike (or Pete... hmmmm... nah, it's Mike, just ask Zurf! - VERY NICE GUY)
The real reason Zurf left early in the morning...

Some little girl that was having a BLAST and knows what she wants for Christmas and she's not going to share it, so I need one tooo! -mekidskid
That beautiful little stream out back of the camp:
Art and beauty are in the eyes of the beholder.
What constitutes excellent music is in the ears of the listener.
