Another weekend is upon us

Well the weekend is here. In some ways I wish I could tell the difference between a weekend and a weekday. This is the first summer in 11 years that I have not been teaching - It's odd having this much free time. But I'm glad I have it.
Next weekend I'll be shooting video again for my buddies in the band that I do some work for. They are playing at festival called Blottopia. It is a small fest, just 2 days and 2 stages, unknown number of people, but it should be tons of fun!
We also played at Wakarusa in Kansas back in June. Much larger fest then. It was held over four days and had (if I recall) 7 stages. I'm guessing about 30,000 people.
The weather is so nice this weekend that I'm going to try for a 20 mile bike ride today and 30 miles tomorrow.
One of the other bands in next weekend's festival is playing at a great venue nearby tonight so I'll probably head there for the evening.
Maybe a little grilled ostrich on the BBQ for diner before I go see the band? Yum!

Blottopia was a blast. We had several musicians from a couple of other bands come to our camp on Friday night. Just kickin back, having a few beers, listening to the guys play.
We had the usual "Tiki Towne" set up that I do. The new keg cooler is a great addition.
Saturday we shot the video. I'm hoping that it all comes together well once I edit all the tapes.
Got to meet some of the guys from Mr. Blotto too. Very nice people. I'm looking forward to seeing them again.
Back to normal life for a while.
