festival of mullets, exploding frogs, and ugly dogs (horses?)

(Strictly Bluegrass Festival)

If your life had a theme song, what would it be? "Man of Constant Sorrows"? or "Oops, I Did It Again!" ha ha ... I'm sure at some point in your life you've heard a song and you realized that they were singing about you. The opening song to the movie of my life would be "You Alone" by Late Tuesday. The song begins like this:

"Well, I've been so independent
I've roamed the streets of Europe
And I have crossed the oceans on my own
And I've never felt the burning need
To chat with people endlessly
In fact, my favorite company was me."

--"You Alone" by Late Tuesday

I can only pray that one day the rest of my life will play out like the rest of the song, but up until now the first stanza has been very accurate. However, I have found much pleasure recently in the enjoyment of good company. Enjoy the pictures from this weekend's festivities.


Water on the Waterfront

All you L'villan couples, take note of the romantic possibilities of this place: sunset, bench swing, watching the boats pass under the bridges. You take out your Altoid box and pass it to your girlfriend. Gasp! What is that?! It's not an Altoid ... It's a diamond ring! .... ha ha ... no PLEASE, I was just joking! ... please don't get any ideas about using an Altoid box ... unless you're determined to harassed about it for the rest of your life.

Corn Island Storytelling Festival.
Braer Possom and
The Exploding Frog

Original Highlands Festival

Ha Ha ... "Keep Your Distance" is the name of a new movie that was filmed here in Louisville. It seems a bit ironic however ...

Makeup Doesn't Cure Ugly Dogs Either!

Whoa! You have like a million pictures on this entry!! I am sad I missed Mimosa last night.
You can do whatever you wanted with the link...I didn't really understand what you were saying.

haha! That's funny!
Does it matter that it's not German and it is spelled Verzwyvelt?

Hey. My friend pointed out your blog a moi. Tres interessant. Feel free to examine the single entry I have on my blog. Nevermind the fact that it doesn't flow perfectly. It has a specific purpose which may never be realized, seeing as that other means of obtaining the desired outcome have come up. Strangely, I recall having seen someone similar to you, or perhaps it was you, sitting on a bench today (Mon) on campus. Perhaps i am mistaken. I am a student at Southern also, live on campus. Perhaps I will see you sometime on campus. Have you read Fitzgerald's "this side of paradise?" The main character, a Mr. Amory Blaine, meets, in the rain, a girl of 18 sitting atop a haystack. She is extemporaneously reciting some obscure poet while covering herself with a tarp of some sort. He climbs up, with some little help from her, the haystack, and a conversation ensues. Well, if I should see you, at least you won't be on a haystack. Fascinating about your book. But you must think of a title unorthodox in nature, yet deep, altogether engaging, thoroughly perplexing. Nevertheless, take care.

Hey, you're on! It does seem like every seminary student has a blog, but I met a guy named Jessie the other day while tearin' up Daniel Montgomery's house. After we introduced ourselves and I found out that he is a seminary student, I inquired, "So, do you have a blog?" And he answered, "No."

The moral of the story is some seminary students are not bloggers.

And I'd say "Oops I Did It Again" is a pretty good theme song for my life, mostly because I'm a klutz. :) Or that Doug Funnie theme song... do-do-doo-da-da-do-da-doo. Well, you kinda have to hear it.
