Our next door neighbor has been working on a soiree to benefit a group called Hope Scarves, that assists women dealing with chemotherapy. A backyard event, the whole day yesterday and today was marked by much traffic and many people bringing items to auction and assorted equipment. It started at seven 0’clock, and because we had indicated that there were a couple of parking spaces at the back of our driveway, they could use those as long as we could get our car out. About eight, I went out to turn our car around in anticipation of leaving later and went back inside. Shortly, our neighbor showed up, concerned that we were unable to get our car out, as there were three cars belonging to the band performing for the event in the drive. I assured her that everything was fine and casually inquired as to the identity of the band, which was cranking out bluegrass at a pretty good volume.
It was this motley crew:
