Volunteer Jam 2008

Charlie Daniels was amazing, hard to believe he is 72 years young!!!!!! the other photo was when he brough members from Shooter Jennings and 38 Special onto the stage for the finale...was pretty good. I could of listened to ol' Charlie for an hour or two more thou. We spent the night at the casino...I first time with free money from the casino...cashed out with $9 ( i started with 20). It was great not having to drive home after the gig since it was snowing and blowing like crazy and remember this was April 11th!!!!!

Mark was sick the next day so I drove home. When we approached the house, he said to just floor it into the drive way...thought the momentum would get us in...NOT!!! he spent a good part of this morning digging the darn thing out! Then the rest of the a.m. snow blowing so I could get to all the bird feeders. It is is 30 with the promise of the upper 40s tomarrow and then into the 50s the rest of the week...and supposeidly no more snow.

I made up dye concentrates and 3 gallons of soda ash water. I am hoping to cut the fabric tonight after dinner. If I have everything prepped, hopefully the dyeing will go easier tomarrow. I will probably rinse out and wash on Tuesday, press and fold on Wednesday and tag on Thursday. I dont know why I wait until the last minute to do these things. It will actually be the first fabric to be dyed by me in da UP.

I will post some photos of the dyeing experience and maybe late in the week, washed fabric on the clothes line.
