Sorry I have been away. We are just having too much fun, I tell you. I think I left off with photo’s of Ajo. Here are some of the fiddler’s photo’s I took. We had a great time at the contest. We ended the weekend on Sunday at the Gospel Songfest. The place was packed! There we all kinds of instruments at this event. Harmonica, mandolin, steel guitar, guitars, violins and the bass. The audience was able to choose songs to sing and the contestants performed also. It was fun seeing these people sing and play and having fun rather than trying to win a competition! The kids who played (ages 11 -14) were amazing. One group, the 80+ group had two contestants – and 80-year-old and a 94-year-old. Both played with exuberance. We didn’t go to the Sunday event after the Gospel Sing because it was Super Bowl day. Doris had us all over for the party and we all
brought food – of course. We were able to get in out of the cold wind (Dick and Doris rig) and sit in comfort to watch the game. It turned out I was the only one cheering on the Saints. Needless to say, I was the only happy face in the group and doing the happy dance. Everyone else went home with long faces!!!! Oh, Peyton look what you did!
Doris taught me how to use this new fangled Knifty Knitter round loom and I put together a hat in no time at all. Although, we really need to test out the time of knitting a cap versus looming a cap. I have made two caps now and trying tomake a scarf on the thing. Not having very good vibs going on this project.
We left Ajo on Monday and drove about 45 miles to Organ Pipe Cactus National Park. More on
that later. To say this place is beautiful is an understatement!
