Last weekend brought the RockyGrass Festival to Lyons so we revved up Fitsy and headed north. We mainly went to see if we could hear some music from a distance and didn't, so after wandering around Main Street, we ended up at the pinball arcade. It's filled with all those old fashioned games like Baby PacMan but we ended up in front of the Kiss game ("Kiss" the band).

We didn't have to leave home after all to hear some great music. Joshua Panda delighted us on the Pearl Street Mall. What a find - a zydeco band from Vermont! With some of these street bands you just have to appreciate the effort but these guys are great! This summer has been stuffed full of live outdoor free music this year and we love it.

Bruce at the Beach posted a sea turtle story and this great photo yesterday. If you want to help save some future generations of these turtles from the oil check out the Share the Beach program in LA (Lower Alabama).

I'm really liking my new concrete mesh fencing. We needed something to contain the dogs in the front yard but didn't want to put a lot of work into the project. We just pounded some rebar into the ground and attached the mesh to it. I like that you can't really see it but we can hang bird feeders and garlic to dry. And yes, I know I need to get out there and do some weeding...
