Folklife Festival

My brother and I were in one of the dance groups at the Texas Folklife Festival last weekend. I don't have any pictures of us, but here are some of the other shows we saw. There was so much to see and do there! We spent the whole weekend taking in as much as we could. It was great for the most part, but I found that it's a little hard to live on festival food for very long.

Here's a Filipino group dancing around moving bamboo poles.

I thought this washboard player had a great costume, and a beard that went with it!

So, How Was Your Memorial Day?

I know this is ancient history for a blog, but you might be interested to know that I spent Memorial Day weekend housesitting for a lady who thought her cats would be lonely while she was on vacation.

I detest cats.
