We had a great time last year and the weather looks good for another fine weekend with nice warm temperatures at night. One cool thing about this festival is we camp by the frog pond. I cannot believe how loud and low a bull frog can get. I swear they were changing notes to follow the songs we were playing.

Sadly Elise Laflamme is busy this weekend, so if I blow a bass ending to a song (like I did last year) I sure hope someone steps up and yells "nailed it" (or as I learned this spring, Yoku Yatta a Japanese near equivalent, remember they don't really have sarcasm in Japan).
Lots of friends have bands playing at Mineral Springs as well, and we're looking forward to camping and staying up picking with them.
Hoping to get to Mineral Springs early afternoon to setup and enjoy some leisure time by the pond before we're off to New Haven tonight.
First though we're off to New Haven CT Friday night after setting up camp at the festival. There's a Hoedown happening in Bruce's old stomping grounds. Cafe Nine is hosting and there are 3 bands on the lineup (we're first at 9pm). We are going to find us some of that fine New Haven pizza while down there.

CupcakesAnd finally, as Curly mentions, we're at the Night of 1000 Cupcakes again this year in Jaffrey NH. It was hot enough to melt cupcakes last time, and it should be fun again.
