Home again, home again.......

Slept most of the way home on the ferry and once we got the van unloaded and stuff put away I had to take another nap, finally starting to feel normal! Last night was terrific at the Folk Festival. It started out with a 12 year old, Kit and the Kaboodles, her voice is as strong as Leanne Rimes was at that age, I'll be watching for her in the future. Ray Troll and the Ratfish Wranglers were a hoot, the band fits his art. We had some good laughs when they sang Ketchikan Cannery Girl, they even had a dancer, dressed in extra tuffs, rain pants, and plastic apron, too funny! One gal from Gustavus had written a song, I thought was for us. About being out on the water and trying to beat a west wind home, but she left out the part about tying up to a mooring buoy for the night, so the song must have been about someone else.................The night ended with the guest band, Les Amis Creole, Uncle Chris would have loved this! Lotsa cajun music to end the night! Frank was handing out business cards to the band members afterwards, with promises of free fishing trips......but those guys will probably never come back, it rained and snowed sideways all week while they were here.

Noticed most of the towns snow birds are back, it must be spring! We just need a nice day to get the boat out of the water to get her cleaned up. Frank will be working temp. at the school for the next couple of weeks, but right after he'll need to start getting new line on the poles, and all the other little things that need to be done finished, May will be here before we know it.
