Sunday Sundry - Vol. 41

Just a quick one this evening.  We spent Saturday afternoon at an benefit block party, "Rally in the Alley," at a nearby campgrounds.  The money raised by this annual event goes to charity.  Last year it was the American Heart Association.  This year it was the cancer society.

There's always a good turnout.  Three bands provided entertainment, including my brothers' band, FuzzPuzzle.

The people-watching was pretty entertaining as well. All sorts of characters, regular campers and visitors alike. Here's my friend Karri, her husband Jim (center) and their friend D. on the left:

Norm and I am are not campers.  We just come and enjoy the day.

My brother Darrell, flanked by his friend Annie on the right and his daughter Samantha on the left (who gave a thumbs up in lieu of smiling):


This is one of the last songs they did, with members of a couple of the bands jamming together.  My brother Russ is singing this one, and Darrell is standing to the left playing electric guitar.  I was using my regular little camera to record this and didn't have the option to zoom in, so it is what it is.

A good time was had by all!

That looks like a lot of fun and it's so wonderful that the proceeds go to a good cause.
I just read your comment about the cabinet cards on my blog and I thought the same thing too....what if someone sees one of the pics and recognizes one of their ancestors. I found a cabinet card of my grandfather on ebay dating to about 1890. I recognized the photo because my Dad had one just like it.....happy to say I won the bid on that one!!
Have a great week.

Looks like a relaxing Sunday. I gather wine was part of the adventure.

I love Mustang Sally - one of my favourite songs and the boys did an excellent job. I was bopping round my kitchen . It was like being there !
